people who have a deficit in one way OFTEN HAVE GIFTS in other ways

people who have a deficit in one way OFTEN HAVE GIFTS in other ways. so if someone is highly sensitive and gets overwhelmed they also have the GIFT of being sensitive which allows them to do something unique. like artists and musicians are SENSITIVE to what they hear and see and feel and translate this into their art. i do agree that when someone seems to be “shut down” it could be that they are really very sensitive to their surroundings and overwhelmed as opposed to not caring. Temple Grandin is a brilliant autistic person in part because she is the FIRST ONE i have heard that states it’s important to not emphasize what is wrong with someone and to see what gifts they have and help them develop those and let go of trying to FIX THE deficit. EXPAND THE GIFTS. this could apply to all people and not just those on the autism spectrum or any spectrum! it’s smarter to FOCUS on someone’s abilities to build on those and stop thinking one must FIX what is wrong and conform to being “normal”. BE YOURSELF AND SHINE YOUR OWN UNIQUE LIGHT. the world needs genuine people who share their talents!
