highly sensitive maleThere is a cultural expectation that women are more emotional and sensitive than men and that men should be tough and stoic. This expectation could clash with the traits of being an HSP, for men.

For this show, I asked several highly sensitive men for their stories and opinions. Even though I intended this to be about males, much of information can apply to all HSPs.

In this Part 1, I talk about the challenges of being a male HSP. In Part 2, next week, I’ll talk about how to deal with those challenges as well as the positives of being a male HSP.
