Let’s Talk About Small Talk
There may be more to the concept of small talk; even if the words small talk make you cringe. Jen and I talk about reciprocity in conversation. Is the topic interesting to you? Is this a one-way conversation? What messages do you tell yourself if you’re feeling bored, or you’re too tired to make the conversation work? We each give specific examples of how this shows up for us, and we talk about learning to be secure in your own attachment, and feeling comfortable wherever you are because YOU are there.

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
