    I don't mind at all?

    Is "I don't mind at all" "I don't care about my shortcoming" or "what you say"? What does it exactly mean?

    ex)Clients send a steady stream of clues and messages through their facial expression, body movement, and voice pitch. Counselors need to learn how to read these messages without distorting or overinterpreting them in order to establish and maintain relationships with their clients. For instance, when Denise says to Jennie, "It seems that it's hard for you to talk about yourself," Jennie says, "No, I don't mind at all." But the real answer is probably in her nonverbal behavior.

    It seems that it's hard for you to talk about yourself.
    No, I don't mind talking about myself at all. (i.e. it's not hard)
