Men and Crying and the Stigmas Attached

Rod Ronald Rod Ronald
As a guy I guess we are suppose to be strong and keep our general crap together, which I think is just BS. Were allowed to cry every now and again, it shows we are not dead inside.
I've been feeling like breaking down for awhile now but it just doesn't seem to come, and on top of that, I have no idea when it was when I cried last?
Do you remember? Does it make you feel better to cry it out sometimes?

I can't remember the last time I just let go and cried. I'm probably due, myself.

I haven't felt vulnerable enough lately, I guess?

Men have emotions, they should show them. When I start to see hubby's eyes tear it really lets me know how invested he is and how comfortable he is around me.

I tear up while watching movies and commercials but I haven't bawled my eyes out in awhile.

To be honest, I use to never cry because I thought it was sign of weakness, but now that I am with my boyfriend I can cry whenever I need to because I have his support and I know that he won't judge me. He has cried in front of me and there was no shame. Men are allowed to cry... Sure, I want someone who can support me and protect me, but I want someone who can show me their emotions and be man enough to be open about their feelings. Does that make sense?

My husband and I have learned that we can cry together, in front of each other and not worry about being less of a person to the other. It was a very freeing lesson--and a very special bond for both of us.

For years, I would not cry in front of anyone--my husband as well. We have overcome the stigma and while we aren't abundant cryers, we are also not afraid to cry in front of the other person.

I'm okay with crying, but I don't do it often.
