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.

Where Identity Intersects With Being Rejected


Annie Schuessler


Annie was terrified to ask to be a guest on 20 podcasts this year; even though she’s a podcaster! We talk about what her gremlins were telling her, and she breaks down her process step-by-step. She shares what she told herself when she was scared, and how she used mindfulness and reframing to reassure herself.  This is a process anyone can do when they are facing new and scary things. Annie talks about being Queer, and how being marginalized played into potential rejection.

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
