Comforting Thought: A highly sensitive person (HSP) can be an enduring anchor during difficult times

Ancient word of the day: Nekyia

Whatever the times, suffering eventually touches every life. How we live with it, and help others to is one of the greatest ethical and creative opportunities for HSPs.

We HSPs do a great disservice to ourselves and others when we think of ourselves as weak compared to the warrior. Our strength is different, but frequently it is more powerful. Often it is the only kind that begin to handle suffering and evil. It certainly requires equal courage and increases with its own type of training. Nor is it always about enduring, accepting and finding meaning in suffering. Sometimes actions involving great skill and strategy are called for.

Dr Elaine Aron, author of The ‘Highly Sensitive Person’.
