I’ve been high achieving, and I’ve been reinforced for that;
to be moderately achieving felt like I’d lost a piece of my identity
Allison talks about having to slow down for health reasons and how this impacted her sense of worth and value. What do you do when you’re a striver and you’re used to pushing through? How to set up structure to support having more balance. We talk about being in the sandwich (or panini) generation, where you’re getting “pressed” from both generations. How to manage caring for, and attending to parents and children and managing medical appointments, disappointing news, and taking care of yourself. Allison utilizes her DBT, ACT, CBT skills to manage high stress levels. We talk about how to see if you’re a Highly Sensitive Person, and we talk about that 30% of HSPs are extroverts and 70% are introverts. Jaquelyn Strickland has written an article on being an HS Extrovert. We review the 4 traits of Highly Sensitive People (DOES)—Depth of Processing, Overarousal/overstimulation, Emotional responsiveness/empathy and Sensory Sensitivity. WE talk about courage and vulnerability and Brene Brown’s work. We also talk about Allison’s guest appearance on Lauren Selfridge’s podcast This Is Not What I Ordered.
