Highly sensitive people absorb a lot of information from the world around us. Consequently, we can easily become anxious, stressed, depressed or overwhelmed. Our sensitive nature also means we feel other peoples’ emotions and stress levels acutely. As emotionally responsive people, we can’t help dealing with all this stimulation in ways that may appear unsociable or overreactive to others. This in turn can result in further stress and damage to our self-esteem when we are shamed or criticised by people who don’t understand our sensitivity. (Psychology Today)
