Do you feel like you are a poor excuse for a "traditional" woman? Maybe you don't like baby showers, don't want children, and feel less "girly" than other women.  If you are a male, perhaps you don't want to talk about the latest sporting event over beers with the boys, could care less about a man cave, and feel overwhelmed with the pressures put on you to be "the provider" for your family.  It's possible you feel like you are constantly disappointing others when you are just trying to be yourself?  There's a reason for that!  HSP's often have a difficult time understanding and accepting traditional gender stereotypes, and it can be even more confusing when trying to navigate relationships with others.  In this episode of HSP S.O.S, Michelle and The Captain talk about their own struggles with gender roles and how that has impacted their perception of self.  If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, it's quite possible then that HSP's are out of this world!
