Publisher's Summary

It's a commonly heard phrase: Stop being so sensitive. These words can be frustrating to hear, and if you are an emotionally sensitive person, they often have the opposite of the desired effect. You cannot simply switch off your emotions like you would a TV show or a radio station playing an annoying song. But there are effective techniques that can help you manage these emotions before they take over your life.

In The Emotionally Sensitive Person, a psychologist provides proven-effective cognitive behavioral and mindfulness techniques to help people like you who struggle with intense emotions. In the book, you will learn powerful tools for staying in the present moment, identifying emotional triggers, developing a strong and healthy identity, and experiencing overwhelming or uncomfortable emotions without becoming upset. You'll also learn how to be more relaxed in your relationships, how your personal values can affect your thoughts and actions, and how to recognize negative thought patterns before you start acting on them. If you are tired of feeling hurt and helpless when it comes to your feelings, this book will provide you with evidence-based strategies for taking charge of your emotions - whether it's at home, at work, or in your relationships.

More of self discipline book

A better title for this book would be “ self discipline” , does not really give tips about how to overcome your sensitive moments, but generally advice about how to be more disciplined in life. It starts by enumerating trades in f self sensitive people than goes to self discipline. If you are an emotional sensitive person you will not get more info than in a book that teaches you self discipline, does not serve entirely the purpose.

This ESP loved it

As an emotionally sensitive person I loved how understanding this was towards my experience. It describes what is happening behind strong feelings and offers a wide selection of practical exercises to help you get control and respond more productively. I am sad for it to be over though and intend to listen again and probably several times until the principles become a part of me.
