How To Honor Our Needs When Things Feel Unjust


Solo episode—Patricia Young


Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) feel things deeply, and we have an incredibly strong sense of wanting things to be just, fair and equitable, and when they aren’t, it can be very upsetting to us.  Many of us have been told to mind our own business.  We perceive things that others don’t, so we catch things that others miss, and we just want things to be fair.  I talk about not staying in my own lane, and consequently having a shame attack.  I learned that I need to honor that part of me that wants fairness and doesn’t want anyone taking advantage of another or not pulling their own weight.  How do we know when it’s the right time to step in and advocate and when we need to allow others to sort things out.


Patricia Young, LCSW is a therapist in San Diego who is in private practice.  Patricia works primarily with Highly Sensitive People (HSP) helping them understand their HSPness, and to turn their perceived shortcomings into superpowers.  Patricia is passionate about providing education to help HSPs and non-HSPs understand and truly appreciate all the gifts we have to offer.  Patricia provides online (telehealth) therapy to people who live in California.  We meet over a private platform (similar to Skype), and you can have therapy from the privacy of your own home—when the kids are at school or are napping; from work; in your pajamas, or when you just can’t face sitting in traffic or going out.
