Listener Question: Being New in a Group that doesn’t Understand the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)
Jen Perry, MSEd, MA, LPC
A listener wrote in and asked how to be mindful when being new to a group that doesn’t understand High Sensitivity. Jen and I talk about common barriers & fears that can come up when joining a group. We talk about confirmation bias and how that has shown up for both of us. We talk about specific tools like mindfulness and being curious, as well as allowing yourself to be a beginner. We also talk about how fears & negative talk can be stronger when we start the healing process, and how it changes over time.

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
