“Big Boys Don’t Cry”

Men find it more difficult to give their emotional needs priority. It seems men often get the short end of the stick when it comes to voicing and processing their feelings. Since birth they have been conditioned to “be brave,” “be strong” and the famous cliché “big boys don’t cry.” Consequently, men have a higher tendency to internalize their emotional pain which leads to physical conditions such as gastro-intestinal problems, headaches, and ulcers. Men have been socially conditioned to “white knuckle” through their emotional experiences and simply “get the job done.” At times, men bypass their internal alarms leading to less than favorable outcomes and more serious physical ailments such as heart disease.
