Do you feel like you “shouldn’t” go to therapy because you need to just “man up”? Have you ever been told that crying is for sissies and you just need to “deal”? Look, men struggle with a lot of pressures, but because of the nature of these pressures, it’s taboo to talk about. Well guess what?
Men struggle with low self-esteem and insecurities.
Men have really big feelings even if they don’t show them.
Men compare themselves to others.
Men struggle with family issues, traumas, depression, anxiety, all of it! And it’s okay!!
It’s okay that you’re struggling with these things, you’re not the only one, even if other men are too “macho” to admit it. 30.6% of men in the United States have reported going through a period of depression in their life.
6 out of every 10 men experience a trauma in their lifetime. 60%!
Guys, do something about it. Seriously. It’s time.
