Highly sensitive people, or «new introverts,» — this is the name for those who react more sharply to noise or vanity, quickly get tired of society and love solitude. These people have a subtle sense of the world and pay attention to the smallest details, so they often make wonderful poets, artists and writers. However, it is difficult for them to live among others: too often they have to make excuses for their fatigue and unsociability, criticism hurts too much, too much energy is spent on empathy, and also on meeting the standards accepted in society.
Ilse Sand, a Danish writer and certified psychotherapist, who has learned from her own experience all the hardships and joys of life for highly sensitive people, tells how new introverts can finally stop trying to rebuild themselves and start living for their own pleasure in harmony with themselves and their feelings.
