MEN: We're expected to juggle a lot: stress, work, relationships, kids, you name! And those things aren’t suppose to bother us. Who established that lie? People believed men can handle anything thrown at us and not be phased, and we can, most of the time. However, that facade will only last a little while. Then, our masks begins to crack! That's my story so I certainly get it. We look one way, feel another, while stuffing what we are really feeling deep down. After a while we begin to unravel! That’s when we turn to things to help us numb and check-out. In retrospect, those things worked well but now they're just making a mess.
