  • 54. Crying

    17/11/2015

    HSPs cry easily. HSPs cry all the time. In this episode, I talk about my problem with the statements like the ones above, and whether or not HSPs really DO cry "a lot" or not.  I also discuss the difference in crying in a ranking situation versus a linking situation (the concept comes from a great blog post by Dr. Elaine Aron.) Mentioned on the show: Blog post: "About Crying Easily" by Dr. Elaine Aron Related content on this blog: My response to The Telegraph article about HSPs My response to the Wall Street Journal article about HSPs Tearing up at performance reviews at work Want to support the show?

  • 53. FAQs about HSPs (for those who are not highly sensitive)

    06/10/2015

    This episode is especially for those who do not have the trait of high sensitivity. It's for those who don't understand HSP, yet want to learn more about it to support someone in their life. In this show, I cover some "Frequently Asked Questions" about HSPs to clear up some misconceptions about the trait. Including: Aren’t “sensitive” people just drama queens and crybabies? Is “Highly Sensitive Person” a made-up thing people use as an excuse to act a certain way? Can’t you just toughen up? My partner was diagnosed as highly sensitive. How can they make it better? I feel like I’m walking on eggshells around my highly sensitive partner/friend. They get upset at everything. How can I better understand my highly sensitive partner/friend/family member?

  • 52. The Sensitive Documentary: My reflections

    22/09/2015

    “We miss nothing and have an innate ability to let others shine.” -John Hughes This has been a big month for HSPs. Dr. Elaine Aron’s documentary, called Sensitive: The Untold Story, came out on September 10. I thought the documentary was groundbreaking and an amazing tool for people to learn about high sensitivity. Dr. Aron’s script expertly covered all the most frequently asked questions about HSPs—the science and evidence behind it, what it means, misconceptions, and more. There were a few points made in the documentary that really impacted me, and I cover those in this Episode 52 of the podcast. They include creativity, sports, being told you are "shy" as a child, differential susceptibility, and more. I'd love to hear what you thought of the documentary, if you got a chance to see it.

  • 51. Job Interviews- A Rant & Tips

    09/09/2015

    I think it’s fair to say that most people dislike job interviews. And for HSPs, they are extra super not-fun. In this episode, I talk about why traditional interviews are a poor way to judge a candidate, how HSPs may react to being interviewed, and end it with 3 interviews tips. (Hey, I wanted to offer something helpful instead of just ranting!) If you enjoy my podcast and blog, if you find it helpful, uplifting, or entertaining, that's awesome!

  • 50. How to stop wanting to escape your job

    25/08/2015

    Have you ever thought: "If only I could quit my job, everything would be better." And you daydream about following your passions, or traveling, or going after that business idea you've always fantasized about?   But you know, deep down, that you will never quit your office job, for whatever reason. And that depresses you.   Well, hopefully today's episode will make you feel a bit better. It talks about how these types of dreams often have little grounding in reality. They are wishful goals that haven't been set, so they can't be reached. Reaching for these unset goals can only leave you disappointed.   NOTE: There is something I should have said in this episode that I forgot to include. Everything I talk about in this episode is my personal opinion from life experiences. I generalize "office jobs" and realize that all jobs and situations are different. These tips might not apply to you and your job situation, so please take it with a grain of salt.   Do you like the show? Become a patron on Patreon. If you en

  • 49. Arguing with internet trolls and other people who anger you

    05/08/2015

    Have you ever gotten into an argument about politics with a family member or co-worker and you got really angry and fired up? Have you ever gotten into a fight online with a complete idiot? Then, did you later find yourself turning over the events in your head, getting angry all over again? Then you felt a little sheepish about it? This episode is about just that--when we HSPs get passionate and fired up about our opinions, we sometimes forget that we have a CHOICE about whether or not to get upset. Here are some tips on how to deal with those people who really know how to push your buttons.   Thank you to Sian Broughton for supporting this podcast on Patreon!!    If you enjoy my podcast and blog, if you find it helpful, uplifting, or entertaining, that's awesome!

  • 48. How to Give Condolences

    21/07/2015

    You’d think as an HSP that I’d be good at knowing what to say when someone I care about, a friend or family member, had something terrible happen to them. I want SO BADLY to say something helpful, but I’m always afraid that I’ll say the wrong thing. So this honestly isn’t for HSPs only—these tips could help anyone.  Links from this episode: The Condolence Coach blog Condolence notes for the death of a pet: A Dog’s Tale Condolence notes for miscarriage or stillbirth: Soothing A Terrible Loss Thank you to Tabitha Jones and Stephanie Pollock for supporting this podcast on Patreon!!

  • 45. Are you a People Pleaser

    17/06/2015

    “Sure, I can work late tonight." “Yeah, you can crash at my place.” “I can babysit, no problem.” “I can lend you some money.” These are things a people pleaser might say. People pleasers take on too much and don't know when to say "no". Their desire to please others and be seen as important and helpful can lead to overwhelm and resentment. Today, I talk about why people have a have time saying No and some ways to stop being a pushover.

  • 44. The Highly Sensitive Man (Part 2)

    09/06/2015

    Last week, in part 1, I talked about the challenges of being a male HSP. There is a cultural expectation that women are more emotional and sensitive than men and that men should be tough and stoic. This expectation could clash with the traits of being an HSP, for men. Today, I talk about how to deal with those challenges as well as the positives of being an HSP and a man.

  • 43. The Highly Sensitive Man (Part 1)

    02/06/2015

    There is a cultural expectation that women are more emotional and sensitive than men and that men should be tough and stoic. This expectation could clash with the traits of being an HSP, for men. For this show, I asked several highly sensitive men for their stories and opinions. Even though I intended this to be about males, much of information can apply to all HSPs.  In this Part 1, I talk about the challenges of being a male HSP. In Part 2, next week, I’ll talk about how to deal with those challenges as well as the positives of being a male HSP.

    27/05/2015

  • 41. Where to vacation

    19/05/2015

    An introvert/extrovert and HSP/non-HSP might take a look at the same vacation itinerary and have completely different reactions. An action-packed, busy vacation in a chaotic big city might seem thrilling to a non-HSP. Whereas an HSP might enjoy quieter, more peaceful activities with time for reflection. When your partner desires the opposite of what you desire, it can be challenging to agree on a vacation spot. In this episode, I talk about what qualities I most enjoy in a vacation destination and how you can agree on a place to spend time off with your non-HSP loved one.

  • 40. Distracted at work

    12/05/2015

    I'm often surprised that I am so easily distracted when I work. Isn't that a symptom of being weak-minded? sad face. If you find yourself easily distracted (especially when working at home), please know that you aren't the only one. Lots of us share the same struggle. The key is to acknowledge, accept, and adjust. There are loads of productivity tools out there that can help you get in the zone. In this episode, I talk about what distracts me and how I try to fight it and stay on track.

  • 39. Responding to the Haters

    05/05/2015

    One of the reasons being a Highly Sensitive Person is tough because a lot of people don't believe that HSP is a legitimate thing. This episode 39 is about dealing with those haters. It's a little heavy on the sarcasm and ranty-ness, so fair warning. My new book is out on Amazon: A Highly Sensitive Person's Life: stories & tips for those who experience the world intensely.

  • 36. Creativity

    08/04/2015

    Today's episode was inspired by this bit of Dr. Elaine Aron's writing: “All HSPs are creative, by definition. Many have squashed their creativity because of their low self-esteem; many more had it squashed for them, before they could ever know about it.” This quote really spoke to me. Maybe this episode will serve as a reminder to introduce a little more creativity in your life (if you need it).
