Let it Out
It’s a big misconception that boys don’t cry. In fact, they can be just as emotional as women who are sometimes made fun of for crying too much. Men just tend to save their tears for when they’re alone. It’s not fair to raise a boy instilling in them to man up instead of shedding tears.
When those unfortunate moments occur where you can’t help but let the tears flow, a man who has been taught that this is unacceptable may only feel worse about himself. It may take a good friend or lover down the road to let him know that it’s okay to be vulnerable and show emotion.
