I AM HSP AND I HAVE A SUPERPOWER
When we talk about HSP people, many still do not know what they are, but there are 30% of the population who are HSP: highly sensitive people like Meritxell Garcia Roig, author of the book. After writing El arte de la empatía and En tus zapatos, Meritxell publishes with Penguin Random House La fuerza de ser altamente sensible. Thanks to this book, we will find if we are HSP and if this is the case or we know someone around us who is (which could be very likely) Meritxell teaches us how to embrace this personality trait, which is not at all negative but quite the opposite: if we embrace it, we can turn it into a superpower.
Do you have a keen sense of smell and hear the slightest noise? Do you get overwhelmed in crowded places? Do you notice subtleties that go unnoticed by most people? Are you bothered by the price tag on your clothes?
If you answered yes, you may be a highly sensitive person (HSP): your neurological wiring is different, you perceive more information than other people through your senses, and you are often overwhelmed by this flood of stimuli. When you understand how your HSP machinery works, you will discover that high sensitivity can work in your favor if you know how. This book teaches you how to tap into your sensitive and creative nature, discover your potential, shine, and build a fulfilling life in accordance with your personality.
Meritxell recommends you to get to know yourself. She affirms that your sensitive nature is valuable and knowing how your inner machinery works is essential to find solutions to everyday obstacles. If you take the HSP test to find out if you are highly sensitive, what you see as a problem today can be changed with information, knowledge, and management. After that, your creativity and sensitivity will shine like never before; being HSP is a superpower that must be taken cared for and nurtured as well. This book is a tool to be able to live better with this personality trait and to know how to deal with those who are also HSP.
In an interview with Meritxell in Sintentia, the journalist said “The power of being highly sensitive is a must read for anyone who wants to understand what they feel, how they live, how to relate to a PAS. Your way of educating, working, and relating to a PAS will change after reading this book. What appears to be a weakness (sensitivity and vulnerability), Meritxell helps you understand it as a strength”.
Practical, useful, and highly recommended book to embrace this gift that so many people have and do not dare to bring it to light.
