The Movie About High Sensitivity I’ve Been Waiting For

This is a lovely post about high sensitivity. The video she links to is a beautiful representation of what it feels like to be highly sensitive.


Remember when I wrote about Elaine Aron’s trailer for her documentary Sensitive: The Untold Story? No? Well, you can read about it here and here.
