I’ve been coming across more and more posts through my reader about the highly sensitive person.  I did a little on-line research, and my jaw literally dropped as a read article after article describing myself better than I could have.

Highly Sensitive Person Traits

22 Signs That You’re a Highly Sensitive Person

Attributes and Characteristics of Being Highly Sensitive

…and more.

Not only did the descriptions fit, but the articles even listed the reactions that highly sensitive people receive from those around them.

It was as though I were reading about my life.  These are characteristics I don’t usually speak about to other people because they’ve never understood and have even mocked.
