Why do so many men and women who tend to be over-masculinized (like so many of us are in our culture) struggle to express and understand their emotions?
How can we embrace both our masculine and feminine energies to feel stable, comfortable and open to feeling the roller coaster emotions of life?
Today’s solocast explores an article in Psychology Today by Dr. Assael Romanelli on the state of today’s male psyche. This article references the work of several mental health professionals including Avrun Wiess, PhD., Jett Stone and David Rettew, MD. We take a deep dive into current trends in male psychology, including the challenge of identifying and naming emotions, the persistent pressure to conform to non-expressive masculine norms and the covert signs of depression in men all around us. I also share tips from the article that offer strategies for creating emotional connection and building new friendships. Men and women alike will likely relate to these issues on some level – for the Divine Masculine is within us all. Let’s work together to support each other, hold space for our emotions and find the courage to experience life at a safe distance outside the comfort zone!
