You get nervous before get-togethers but enjoy them once you get there, at least for a while. Could you be a highly sensitive person and an extrovert, too? In this episode of Woman Worriers, host Elizabeth Cush and her guest, Patricia Young, talk about life as a highly sensitive extrovert.
“Being alive is messy and complicated and we can lean into the
pain and we can lean into the joy.”
— Patricia Young
When you were growing up, you might have felt like a misfit. Now, you might feel life’s ups and downs very intensely. You might process things differently, on a deeper level. Sound familiar? You might be a highly sensitive person (HSP). It’s a trait we usually associate with introverts, but that’s not always the case. In this episode of the Woman Worriers podcast host Elizabeth Cush, LCPC, a licensed professional therapist and founder of Progression Counseling in Annapolis, Md., welcomes Patricia Young, a social worker, coach and host of the Unapologetically Sensitive podcast, who is herself a highly sensitive person who also happens to be an extrovert. They talk about therapy and coaching, introversion and social anxiety, being highly sensitive and balancing stimulation, healing old wounds and coming to understand the gifts you have to bring to the world.
