Know any guys aged 40-60? These men have the highest risk of suicide out there. Suicide is clearly not just a teenage issue.
Our men live in a world that has long associated crying and expressing emotion as an overtly 'feminine' trait, rather than a human trait. It often connotes weakness, shame, inadequacy, and a sense that one is 'too sensitive'...As a parent to a growing boy, I relish any opportunity where my children can learn that experiencing things deeply doesn't make them weak, it makes them alive.
