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.

A Black Man’s Experience in America part 2


Marcus Stricklin


Marcus shares honestly and vulnerably his experiences being a black man in America.  This is a heartfelt and open account, and Marcus wants to start a dialogue on how we can move forward together.  He talks about how black people are portrayed and how biases are formed. People are afraid of the unknown, and Marcus wants to change this.


Marcus Stricklin is a married father of 5, a writer, and a person who likes to make people laugh. He is a filmmaker, an author, and longs to be a TV writer. 


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
