Well done! Your hard work has got you a place at University!

Fresher’s week sounds great, meet new people, lots of partying, freedom to make your own choices, people have told you it’s the best time ever!

Are your own feelings easily bruised and do you worry endlessly about hurting other people’s? Do you well up when watching charity adverts for illness or animal cruelty, dislike scary films or feel bothered by loud or irritating noises (think music coming from somebody’s earphones) in a way that those around you don’t?

Rather, she finds herself irritable, resentful and at times apathetic.

She feels guilty not being happy; she keeps it a secret so as not to appear selfish or unappreciative.

She is consistently making plans to change, to be a better person.

About 1 in 5 people are highly sensitive -- equal in both sexes

Highly sensitive people are complex in their characteristics. They tend to have been shy, timid children. They are creative, react to the smallest change in their environment, subject to mood fluctuations, organised, hardworking and conscientious and empathic.  

Perhaps the most distinctive trait is their tendency to become overwhelmed  when their senses are overloaded. Such as in crowds of people, social occasions, or with smells and noise or hav...
