Men growing up in Western society are taught a boy must grow up to be tough and resilient. Showing feelings is considered a weakness. Hearing “big boys don’t cry” one’s whole life does not make it true. Men do cry and emotionally healthy people accept that as a well-rounded strength. Crying too frequently can be symptomatic of mental illness that needs attention. Generally however, when a man is moved by his emotions he should not force them back. Allowing the fullness of an emotion when it comes up will avoid it coming up again and again until it is accepted and felt.
Let your tears come.
Let them water your soul.
