Unapologetically Sensitive

We explore how sensitivity weaves itself into our lives; the richness that it adds, and the strengths we have BECAUSE of our sensitivity--and some of the challenges it poses as well. You may learn to live a bolder, brighter life.

My Husband and I Talk About How We Met and Some of the Challenges We Have in Our Marriage



Steve Young



My husband, Steve Young, and I have a candid discussion about our origin story, detailing our lives before we met; first impressions upon meeting each other, and the challenges we experience as a couple, who have been married for more than 21 years. We talk about our differences being an HSP and non-HSP, and how we navigate those areas.  



  • We discuss how we met, and our first perceptions of each other
  • Living as an HSP with a non-HSP
  • We share different examples of how we are wired differently, and how differences in our family upbringing may have contributed to our wiring
  • The traits that we love about our partners can also be the traits that just drive us crazy sometimes
  • We discuss the ways that we navigate those moments of frustration or tension
  • We share specific examples, from both perspectives, of when the differences in our personalities create challenging situations
  • Communication is key - Discussing and naming our feelings and  fears
  • Steve shares his thoughts about learning I was a Highly Sensitive Person--we look back on our relationship after learning this
  • We talk about how being able to name the challenges we experience has helped with acceptance in our daily lives
  • We discuss the importance of recognizing and honoring each other’s differences
