Careers for Highly Sensitive People
So for most of my life I considered myself a fairly thick-skinned, typical guy. Stability, strength and steadfastness were more like it. All good traits, but often it seemed like an either or equation rather than a both and. So I followed in the footsteps of the male role models I had; mostly stoic, emotionally unavailable, intellectually focused men. That worked for a while but at some point during the past 18 or so years that I have been actively and sometimes intensively engaged in personal growth, I have discovered that behind the walls and under the layers of distance and detachment lives a highly sensitive person. This awakening sensitivity has, sometimes, felt more like a burden than a blessing. But ultimately, and only quite recently, I have come to accept my sensitivity as a gift and a powerful ally on my journey of personal evolution. When I began this journey, the term Highly Sensitive Person was not widely known if at all. But as more has been written about Highly Sensitive People and the concept has gained wider though certainly not universal acceptance I have come to recognize and accept myself as a Highly Sensitive Person. This innate sensitivity has been well researched and the term Highly Sensitive Person was coined in by Elaine N.

Although some degeneration of the fibers supplying the arms commonly takes place, most people with HSP do not have symptoms in the hands or arms.
Impaired cellular membrane trafficking, more particularly, axonal transport of macromolecules and organelles, is the best-characterized genetic mechanism of HSP.

Empathy, the Dark side Problems in Relationships Most Empaths, find themselves at the center of almost any group. They are leaders, teachers, they make good speakers, and can do all these things and more, with considerable talent.
