These are comments by Matthew, Frank, Jeff Roth on the post “I Am a Highly Sensitive Man”.
Thanks for writing this. I’ve always felt like I am an extreme minority. It was very nice to hear how someone shares the exact same feelings I do. When you were describing how you feel, how situations can be difficult, how you perceive things as more profound and/or deep than others, etc., this could have been written by me. Thanks again.
Thank you for your courage to write about an important topic that really resonates with me. While I still struggle with being hurt constantly because of my sensitivity, I have now embraced my sensitivity as a great asset which has served me well as I have responded to the hurts and needs of others.

I thought you should know, your article changed my life. I’d been exposed to the HSP idea before, and the book had sat on my shelf, and I did nothing with it for 2 years. Now I’ve come across understanding again, and delved into it, and it explains myself to me. No longer must I be victim and prey to allowing people who are unlike me to take advantage of me. Before I didnt know my boundaries, or my needs around boundaries, because I didn’t “get” who and what I am.
Now that I see it and know it, I’m not at conflict with it, and i can take care of myself around it effectively. I’m really looking forward to thrive. Thank you so much for posting this article. I especially was taken by the photo that accompanies the article. That drew me in in some mysterious way. Good choice.
