When People Don’t Really Get You
How do you determine how much to share in relationships? What do you do if you are vulnerable, and you are met with defensiveness, annoyance or rejection? How do you assess if the other person values authenticity, vulnerability and honesty? Jen and I talk about the skills and qualities you may want in a close relationship, and how to assess if they are present. We also talk about the gremlins that may come up when you are not met with acceptance, and how you can navigate the discomfort.

Patricia is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Coach. She knows what it’s like to feel like an outcast, misfit, and truthteller.

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
