When it comes to talking about emotional health, struggles with depression and anxiety, men tend to hide their emotions from other men and rarely speak about their struggles. Due to societal pressure on how men should behave and negative views on men who cry, most men are reluctant to discuss their feelings. Many times, men who feel physically and emotionally tired or at their emotional breaking point are told to “man up” or “suck it up”. It’s time for society to recognize that men have emotions and should be encouraged to express their feelings like women are often allowed.
