Men’s mental health 💜

The terminology we use in today’s society when a man shows his emotions, needs to change!

Throw away with terms like; man up, men don’t cry only girls do, why can’t you be more manly?

If we don’t start correcting these terms, the younger generation may be even more at risk to higher male suicide rates.

We need to change the way we communicate, and know that it’s ok to show our emotions 💜

When this happens we just need to change our glasses and we can see things from a different view 👀
