Hi, I'm a young male mid 20's. Idk if I'm the only one but, I can't bring myself to cry. When I'm stressed or feeling depressed most of the time it feels like the only way to cope with it or let it out is by crying (Of which many therapists would probably recommend) but my mentality about how a man should be hinders me from doing so . I've been told by various women that I'm a misogynist or "too musculene" and I think it's affecting me. I don't want the stress to build up into suicidal thoughts, what should I do?
A young male over here too.
Let your emotions express themselves but not necessarily via crying. Crying is not always the solution, make an attempt of speaking with someone, that will be better. Or write it down. I also wouldn't want myself to cry over something, if the tears come well and good, if they don't do something else provided you get some light on the problem.
