The One Thing All Men Feel, But Never Admit!!!
Every single boy growing up has heard these phrases at least once over the course of his life. They are all too common. They are also all too damaging. Most think that “toughening” boys is just a rite of passage, but a growing body of research is showing just how harmful these messages can be.
Since most men grow up in toxic environments where they are encouraged to repress their emotions, express power through dominance and prove their masculinity, it’s no wonder that these pressures result in serious consequences for them. Did you know that boys are 30% more likely to drop out of school? They are also seven times more likely to take their own lives than girls.
Therefore, we should stop urging the male folks to ‘man up’,it is a phrase that belittle their personality and a slap to their natural ego.
