There is a common perception out there that men don’t talk about how they are feeling or what they are going through when faced with a challenging or trying time in their life. This predominantly comes from a childhood where men were conditioned from a young age that it was not ok for men to show emotion as it was considered ‘weak’ men are supposed to be ‘tough’ and ‘cowboys don’t cry’. Traditionally men would go to the pub for a few drinks or participate in a sport such as playing golf. Believe it or not, men do have feelings, they do feel hurt and they can feel overwhelmed at times and more and more men are starting to seek the necessary support and help to deal with the challenges they are facing. I asked a number of men what their views and perceptions are today when it comes to men expressing their feelings and emotions.
