Our critical internal dialogue corrodes positive self-regard and confidence. That inner critic is fueled by the culture and other people, and our responses to it.
Jenna Avery, a coach for “Highly Sensitive Souls,” says in an audio interview that one of the issues for highly sensitive people is constantly questioning “Why can’t I fit in? Why don’t I react to things like other people?”
But, she adds, “There are so many interesting things in our world right now… The Secret and What The Bleep Do We Know?… There are spiritual movements afoot that are becoming more and more mainstream.
“So many people are becoming attracted to developing their intuition, to being true to themselves, to finding spirituality in their lives.
“I hope very much that our culture is beginning to shift in a positive way. I do believe that it is. And I hope that it makes it a more sane place for highly sensitive people to live.”
