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.

In order to make this podcast sustainable, I will be making changes moving forward.  I talk about why it’s been difficult for me to slow down, and how some of my sense of value and worth has been tied up in a rigorous production schedule.  I have some fear about losing listeners, and I want to be able to provide great content over the long run. Self-care and setting boundaries are crucial for the well-being of the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), and I talk about how I plan to improve on both of these.
