Do you feel too sensitive, fragile, different? You are not alone.
In this book, part memoir, part thoughtful and practical advice, Federica Bosco shares her experiences while teaching us the skills to enjoy the bright side of being a highly sensitive person.

Hypersensitivity — also known as being a “highly sensitive person” (HSP) — is not a disorder. It is a condition that affects 20% of the world population. Together with the feeling of inadequacy — which is very natural, you don’t need to be a HSP to have experienced it at least once in your life! — hypersensitivity has benefits, such as being able to “read” the mood of a room and taking into account subtle cues when making a decision.
In this inspiring and relatable memoir, Federica Bosco opens up about her fears and about how she learned to turn her weakness into a strength. She believes knowing that you have hypersensitivity is the first step to changing your life. It wasn’t until she was finally able to give herself permission to embrace her imperfect self that she was able to recognize the strength of her sensitivity and to find solace and, yes, happiness.

How to Turn Your Sensitivity into a Strength
For all the people who have constantly been told they are “too sensitive” and need to “toughen up,” here comes a warm and uplifting book written by a woman who spent years feeling as though there was something wrong with her, until she discovered that she was not alone.

A must read for anyone who has ever felt inadequate.

Key points
– Hypersensitivity is a trending topic.
– 20 percent of the world population falls into the category of Highly Sensitive People.
– You do not need to be Highly Sensitive to relate to this subject. Feelings of inadequacy are very natural. Most people feel inadequate at some point in their life.
– Though being Highly Sensitive is a natural and healthy condition and it has a number of unique
gifts, if left undiagnosed it can damage lives and relationships.
