Men do not talk about their weakness and anxiety, they think they are loved only for luck. Because they were raised this way – the iron hearts’ supermen.
It’s different for women – they can open their hearts to a stranger or hanging out on the phone for hours. And a miracle – they feel relief!
And the man will always say that he is okay, even though he has been drinking for half a year in despair. Life seems meaningless, and he doesn’t even dare to admit to his wife, after all, superman can’t be weak.
But if superman would try! If he dares to express his troubles, he would certainly be heard, and more importantly, hear himself and understand better.
Until one day he would learn to be not ashamed of his tears, love, and sadness. And then things would get easier for Superman.
