Making Ourselves Small, so Others Don’t Feel Uncomfortable


Solo episode


We often are told to smile, be polite, to not make waves, and we lose our authentic spunky self. We learn that it’s not ok to be authentic, or to say what we’re really feeling (if we even know what that is) because we don’t want to make others uncomfortable. The Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is perceptive, and is a keen observer! We’re supposed to live our lives fully, so that we are fulfilled. How do we learn to take up space in our own lives?


Patricia is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Coach. She knows what it’s like to feel like an outcast, misfit, and truthteller. Learning about the trait of being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), helped Patricia rewrite her history with a deeper understanding, appreciation, and a sense of self-compassion. She created the podcast Unapologetically Sensitive to help other HSPs know that they aren’t alone, and that being an HSP has amazing gifts, and some challenges. Patricia works online globally working individually with people, and she teaches Online Courses for HSPs that focus on understanding what it means to be an HSP, self-care, self-compassion, boundaries, perfectionism, mindfulness, communication, and creating a lifestyle that honors us
