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.

You Have Everything Inside You; This Is How To Tune In


Megan Wurst


Megan talks about how healing it was to hear other Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) relate to things that she experienced, and to hear other HSPs verbalize things she felt, but hadn’t named.  Megan wanted a rulebook to learn how to manage the traits of being Highly Sensitive, but instead, she got a user’s manual, which helped her learn about herself and what she needs, and what she’s thinking and feeling.  Megan talks about how she has embraced her traits, and has found her people, who also honor her.


Megan Wurst works in early childhood education and specializes in helping parents and childcare providers support infant and toddler development. She is currently working on a graduate certificate in Infant Toddler Mental Health. Megan learned about the term Highly Sensitive Person while studying neurodiversity and immediately recognized herself which led to a quest for more information and the discovery of the Unapologetically Sensitive podcast. She took the 10 week class last year. 


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
