In our culture, we are not just a minority, but one that is considered to be far from the ideal. It might seem that we need to go to the other end, from feeling weak, flawed and victimised to feeling strong and superior. I consider this to be a necessary compensation. But for many HSPs, the real challenge is to achieve a middle-ground. No more ‘too shy’, ‘too sensitive’, too anything. Just OK, ordinary, normal.
