Welcoming Your Own Humanness with Self-Compassion
Guest host Jen Perry shares her gremlins about recording for me this week and being unapologetic about it. She talks about valuing self-compassion over self-esteem. Jen talks about how to slow the process down and create peace in the moment to help you soften. She talks about why curiosity and kindness support self-compassion. Jen talks about the perils of perfectionism as well as conflict. Jen quotes Kristin Neff by asking if you can “soften, soothe and allow.” Jen also talks about parenting.

Patricia is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Coach. She knows what it’s like to feel like an outcast, misfit, and truthteller. Learning about the trait of being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), helped Patricia rewrite her history with a deeper understanding, appreciation, and a sense of self-compassion. 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.
