Regarding International Men’s Day

In my International Men’s Day post my thought behind it was to let men know it’s ok to be sensitive, to seek help for all their wounds and pains. They need to know that stigmas shouldn’t stand in the way of health and wholeness. Too many men tend to push their woes aside because it’s what generations of men did before.

As a person with depression and grieving over the death of my dad I need to remind myself and to inform others it’s ok to be vulnerable and to even hurt. It is also a way to be in solidarity with women who still face a difficult life for reasons that are well documented. We are all in this life together.
