If you answered yes to a lot of these questions you may be what is known as a Highly Sensitive Person or HSP.
Respondi afirmativamente a tudo e sim, sou hipersensivel.
Instead of portraying this type of individual as having some sort of disorder, Doctor Aron simply describes the highly sensitive person as possibly having a different neurological make-up than some. Some describe highly sensitive people as those who have a sensitive but finely tuned neurological system. This type of wiring can be considered a gift because you may be very empathic, creative and intuitive but there may be a price to pay in also having to battle symptoms of anxiety and depression. HSPs are said to be deeply affected by physical and emotional pain. There are days when I feel like an exposed nerve, unprotected and raw. The world seems especially difficult to navigate as I am always attempting to feel safe but also pursue my goals. There are times when I physically and emotional shut down as an innate protection strategy from becoming overwhelmed. I think a lot of factors influence whether or not you are a highly sensitive person. People who have faced numerous life stressors are probably going to be a little or a lot more sensitive than others. Some of us may have both a biological and genetic predisposition to approach the world more warily than other people. It is my opinion that people who are highly sensitive may also have what is called a sensory processing disorder . A sensory processing disorder would explain why some HSP's have difficulty regulating sensory information and find some stimuli aversive or painful such as loud sounds or bright lights.
E estou em plena crise de hipersensibilidade emocional. Talvez o texto ajude a quem tem que lidar comigo e com os meus problemas diariamente.
