144 Overwhelm Perfectionism as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) with Jen Perry

Overwhelm & Perfectionism as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)

Do you wake up with anxiety because you’re worried or feeling overwhelmed? How do you find joy around your to do list? Jen and I talk about where we feel overwhelmed, and the imperfect ways we manage perfectionism. Jen says it’s like stringing beads with no knot at the end. We explore how trauma may impact our need for piles, being a minimalist, keeping things super clean and other ways we learn to cope.
