The Highly Sensitive Person In Love: Understand... High Quality
Many people think that highly sensitive people take things too personally, but so what? With all the feelings and overstimulation bouncing around in their heads at any given moment, you would, too. That said, if someone betrays them, it can be incredibly hard for an HSP to just shake it off and move on. Although they are gracious enough to forgive others, they also know when to instill boundaries (even if it may be difficult). The plus side is, they learn from every situation, both good and bad, so that they can avoid repeating past mistakes.
The Highly Sensitive Person in Love: Understand...
?The Highly Sensitive Person in Love gives relationships their proper basis in the inner life, and honors those who are by nature drawn to that life. This wonderful and important book will help the highly sensitive find peace and fulfillment in their relationships.?—Robert Johnson, Doc.Hum., author of Inner Work and Balancing Heaven and Earth
Dr. Elaine Aron's audiobook Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person redefines the term highly sensitive for the professional researcher and practitioner. She dispels common misconceptions about the relationship between sensitivity and other personality traits, such as introversion and shyness, and further defines the trait for the benefit of both the clinician and patient.
Statistics show that 50 percent of what determines divorce is genetic temperament. And, if you are one of the 20 percent of people who are born highly sensitive, the risk of an unhappy relationship is especially high. Your finely tuned nervous system, which picks up on subtleties and reflects deeply, would be a romantic asset if both you and your partner understood you better. But without that understanding, your sensitivity is likely to be making your close relationships painful and complicated.
Based on Elaine N. Aron's groundbreaking research on temperament and intimacy, The Highly Sensitive Person in Love offers practical help for highly sensitive people seeking happier, healthier romantic relationships. From low-stress fighting to sensitive sexuality, the book offers a wealth of practical advice on making the most of all personality combinations. Complete with illuminating self-tests and the results of the first survey ever done on sex and temperament, The Highly Sensitive Person in Love will help you discover a better way of living and loving.

If you yourself are also highly sensitive, it can be very hard for you to accept a family members lack of compassion; however it is important not to dwell on it for too long. Give it some time to see if anything changes and if not, accept that you have tried your best. Then, turn your focus to those who are supportive and understand.
In the meantime, it is essential for you to surround yourself with supportive people. Focus on those who can and do support you and/or your child.
