Unapologetically Sensitive

In this podcast, we explore how sensitivity weaves itself into our lives. We talk about the richness that it adds, and the strengths we have BECAUSE of our sensitivity and some of the challenges it poses as well. If you are a Creative, a deep thinker, a deep feeler, a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), an introvert, or identify as INFJ or ENFJ, you may enjoy the in-depth conversations where we talk openly and honestly about how we experience life. This is a podcast where you can learn, relate, laugh and maybe even live a bolder, brighter life. Have you been told you’re “too” (fill in the blank)? You’re too sensitive; you think/worry too much; you take things too personally; you’re too emotional, too finicky, too fragile, too intense, too uptight, too slow. Have you been told you can’t take a joke; you can’t go with the flow? You can’t let go of things? Making decisions can be very difficult. You might have an acute sense of smell, and strong odors, crowded noisy environments and bright lights are just too much! You notice things that no one else does. You have a strong sense of justice and you may be a peace-keeper. Conflict feels uncomfortable. You’re the one that everyone tells their problems to because you’re a good listener who cares deeply. You’re in the right place! You may have been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, ADHD or something else. Sometimes Highly Sensitive People are misdiagnosed. Our brains are wired differently. We are born with the trait of High Sensitivity. There’s nothing wrong with you! You will learn that your perceived weaknesses are really are your superpowers! Dr. Elaine Aron coined the term Highly Sensitive Person (also known as Sensory Processing Sensitivity).

Bunny the Talking Dog
Bunny The Talking Dog Alexis (Bunny’s human), talks about wanting to have the best relationship with her dog, and she wanted to develop trust and a strong bond with Bunny, so she decided to teach bunny to talk. Bunny uses words like happy, mad, sad, concerned, ugh, sorry, and please. Alexis talks about the research that is being done at The Comparative Cognition Lab at UCSD. She says animals are communicating all the time; we need to be listening. She provides resources and a wealth of knowledge. GUEST Alexis Devine,  LFDM-L, CCET GUEST BIO Alexis Devine is an artist and entrepreneur hailing from Seattle, Washington. She is a licensed family dog mediator, and a certified canine enrichment technician. Her sheepadoodle Bunny, known as "What About Bunny" on social media became an internet sensation in the fall of 2020 when videos of her communicating with assistive technology from FluentPet went viral. Bunny now has over one hundred buttons individually programmed with various words that she uses to communicate how she feels, what she wants, to express when she is in pain and even to chat about her dreams. She is part of an ongoing canine cognition research study at the Comparative Cognition Lab at UCSD. They have recently added a standard Poodle to the family named Otter who Alexis is training with the same system. Alexis' goal is to further our understanding of the power of connection and importance of two-way communication, meeting her dogs where they are and understanding them on their terms first to facilitate trust and promote an environment that supports them as the incredible creatures they are.

Do you get nervous before you travel (especially if it’s to a new place, or a foreign country)? I’m paddling for 14 days in Baja, and I’m nervous. How can you feel the fear or anxiety, AND walk through the discomfort to gather information so you can live a more expansive life?

148 Self-Care When You're Overwhelmed, With Jen Perry
Self-Care When You’re Overwhelmed It can be hard to start tasks and complete them when you’re overwhelmed.  Jen and I talk about strategies that work for us.  We also talk about the importance of pleasure and rest vs. having to do all the hard stuff before you treat yourself to a reward.  Jen talks about looking at who’s telling the story when you have a gremlin (I started the episode feeling I was being bossy and controlling), and about looking at what the need is behind an annoying or distracting behavior.

Showing up Messy When you have high standards for yourself, it can be very difficult to show up imperfectly, and it’s easy to go into self-blame. Unfortunately, this usually comes at a cost. Jen and I talk about how to make the shift from focusing on external expectations (and fear of judgment), to focusing internally on what you want and what you are able to give. We talk about the gifts of self-compassion, vulnerability, deep connection, and focusing on the relationship instead of unrealistic high standards.

140 Getting Grounded and Orienting to Yourself, with Jen Perry
Getting Grounded and Orienting to Yourself Many Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) learn to focus on everyone else’s needs. The focus is external instead of internal. You don’t learn how to focus on your perspective, your body, or your needs.  This can be an orientation injury. The Highly Sensitive Person can see multiple perspectives, and based on your attachment patterns, this can make it harder (or easier) to focus on the needs, emotions and happiness of others.  We explore how to get grounded in your sovereignty.

Naming What’s Challenging as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) I suck at lying! I’m planning a surprise party for my husband, and I’ve been like a deer in the headlights a few times. I also talk about feeling disappointed that I had expectations about my puppy being affectionate, and she’s not. I talk about how you work with naming what’s hard and challenging in order to honor your feelings, while consciously creating a narrative that allows you to see what IS working. I also revisit my fear around kayaking in the ocean, and how you can manage fears that recycle.

Practicing Self-Compassion when Perfection, Competing Needs and Burnout are Present It can be hard having needs; not getting your needs met; having to compromise around your needs.  This can activate attachment injuries, that can cause or exacerbate depression, anxiety, burnout and self-doubt. How do you take care of yourself? How do you bring in self-compassion and self-trust? Do you believe that if you do things a certain way, you can protect yourself from having doubts or negative feelings? I talk about how this showed up for me.

Stoicism During Hard Times for the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) When there is a crisis, do you reach out and share what’s going on and ask for support? Do you tell yourself that you will worry when there is something to worry about?  I share some recent experiences.  My son asked me to let him know next time if his Grams is sick because he wants to know.  I thought I was protecting him from worrying. There is also a gift in allowing others to be there to support you, so you don’t have to go through things alone.
