I have read during the last two years several biographies of HSPs in the forum about it I'm active in.

One was extremely bad: A female member told of living with her mother (I think) most of the time, who did really cruel things to her.

Her father worked out of town, so he couldn't take care for her as much as he wanted to.

At one point, she was given to her grandparents, which made life easier for her.

It is incredible what children sometimes must stand.

Because she lived in kind of constant fear of her mother, she also lived more with relatives and non-family-members druring growing up.

She could withstand everything, though, and seems to be quite normal nowadays.
There's a special kind of people who just can resist such behaviour because of some special kind of "inner strength". I don't remember the psychological term for that.
Anyway, she seems to be one of this kind.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
