Elaine Aron talks to HSPs about the fundraising for the movie Sensitive and the movie’s purpose, to reach out to HSPs and non-HSPS alike.   She also announces another video, to explain high sensitivity to those without the trait.  She hopes HSPs will find this useful to show to friends and families, even teachers and doctors.  Just click and they get it all in 6 minutes.

    Hello,

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I randomly read this article that a friend posted on Facebook: http://hellogiggles.com/signs-youre-sensitive-person/2. Honestly, this is the first time I’ve had a real answer to why I feel the way I do. When something changes in my life I feel extremely happy or extremely sad…and don’t get me started on my low pain tolerance. My whole life I’ve been a people pleaser and I have a habit of wanting to put others needs first to make them feel comfortable. Being a college student, I’ve learned more about myself and my tendencies. I knew there was something different about me but I didn’t understand what. I’ve questioned, am I depressed? Am I bipolar? I literally just thought I was crazy. Within any given month I feel really sad for no particular reason then soon enough I’m extremely happy with my life. The funny thing is, the past couple years I’ve noticed it a lot more and I’ve started to accept it. I used to think there must be something wrong with me, but I got to the point where I’d just accept it. I like sitting in a patch of grass alone, studying alone, making people feel accepted, and being observant. I don’t like feeling intensely sad or being too conscientious, but these are things I’ve been trying to accept and work on. A lot of people don’t understand me on an emotional level. I remember telling some friends that I wanted the tattoo saying, “This too, shall pass.” Mainly because I feel feelings so intensely that I think to myself, if I don’t like this feeling there will be an intensely good one coming at some point. Many of my friends think it’s a depressing quote, but I think it’s quite beautiful. People will think the music I listen to or the movies I watch or the books I read are depressing when I just think they’re incredibly interesting. Also, relationships can be difficult. The last person I dated didn’t express his feelings at all and it gave me a panic attack every other day. I connect best with those who are willing to open up to me. Anyway, I can’t believe that a FB article just changed my life. It’s so nice to know that I am not bipolar or have some other metal illness, I’m just hypersensitive. Woo!
    Again, thank you thank you thank you! I will look more into this and watch the documentary.

    Best,
    Sarah Shuman

    Thank you, Elaine Aron, for your groundbreaking work which has brought understanding, freedom and acceptance to millions of people around the world. As an HSP, I find my life makes more sense, and as a therapist, I’ve been able to share your work with hundreds of people who can finally feel “at home” in their life without any judgments or self-criticism. Your work has also helped prevent many divorces as couples come to understand each other with more respect and compassion. Thank you to the producers of your movie and all the contributors who made it happen. I look forward to seeing it and sharing it. I loved working with you in Chicago, and hope our paths cross again soon. With much love and gratitude, Linda xoxo
