About Us

This is a weekly podcast for Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs), introverts, empaths, intuitives, INFJs or anyone else that wants a little help supporting sensitivity! My name is Michelle Lynn. I share my experiences as a highly sensitive person while discussing the works of Dr. Elaine Aron. It is my intention to provide useful tips and resources for other individuals looking to balance, maintain, and enhance their own unique sensitivities. The show is perfect for HSPs, introverts, empaths, intuitives, individuals with ADHD, and anyone that has regular interaction with people that have sensory needs. The information I provide is not only helpful for HSPs, but it can also benefit parents and spouses of the highly sensitive, educators, employers, individuals with autism or other sensory processing sensitivities and disorders. It’s candid, useful information that listeners can apply to their life immediately. I want to acknowledge and celebrate sensitivity. It’s time to help the people that help everybody else.

Very HSP Problems

Should we embrace our quirks and be ourselves, or should we try a little harder to "fit in" with everyone else? For a highly sensitive person, this dilemma is the daily struggle. Most of the time we find ourselves apologizing for who we are, and it can leave us feeling a bit alienated and lonely. Sometimes, however, it's fun to just shine the spotlight on what makes us different in order to connect with other highly sensitive people.

HSP SOS #37 - Addiction & Highly Sensitive Persons

Addiction is not an easy topic to talk about, but it is an important one. On this episode, Michelle Lynn and The Captain start a conversation about the possible connection between sensitivity and addiction, as well as explore why addiction is a highly sensitive persons topic. If you have struggled with addiction, or someone you know has struggled with addiction, please take a moment to be a part of this important discussion. It's not about judging or educating. It's just about taking the time to pause and reflect on the role addiction plays in our lives and why our current approach to helping people with addiction doesn't always work. ----- ----- Resources- Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America's Greatest Tragedyhttps://www.amazon.com/Clean-Overcoming-Addiction-Americas-Greatest/dp/0544112326 ---Subscribe to the HSP SOS Podcast!--- iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/hsp-sos/id1221116848 Google Play https://play.google.com/music/listen#/ps/Inavjhxeg2rdkub26frsppa7pca...
