I struggle with this a lot too. I think it's fucked up when it comes down to human psychology and gender bias. It makes me angry and depressed but I know there's not much I can do about it. Especially with me being stuck dealing with medical and financial issues and emotional trauma.

I'm sorry to hear that I hope things get better for you.

Ignore them and decide what’s path is best for you! Just treat everyone with kindness really.

Exactly. It's tough sometimes. Harder than most. But just give a day at a time. Moment by moment. It's easier to let go and be the monster the world claims that we are/made. Then hates us when the monster succeeds in life and rename it has workaholic or male dominant bullshit. It's me just ranting.

This is something a lot of us struggle with. Which demands and expectations do you personally find hardest to deal with?

The whole I have to sacrifice my self for women,children and my country is one that scares me.

I may be suicidal but I don't want to die like that.

Same here

[–]a-man-from-earth 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

You don't have to do that. Just rebel against that expectation. Nobody gets to decide who or what I sacrifice myself for.

The issue is how society will see him if he rebels, usually as a useless excuse of a man(which of course is far from the truth)

Aren’t we all bro, just try not to let it get you down I know hard that is but its all we can do!

[–]Independent-Hunt2960 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I’m going through something similar. Hope it gets better for you, brother.

I think just try not to let too many of your worries become the reason for your other worries, it gets hard to handle when that happens.

We all do and the sad thing about this is, that we have to deal with that to some extent. Not to say there can't be a change, but socialization already did it's damage, that can't be undone. The only thing we can really do is to change the current material status and hope that the newer generations will have it easier.

Yeah as men we are definitely living in some times where the challenges are vastly different than what our ancestors had to endure. We are probably in one of the most peaceful eras in human history and the development we have seen in the last several decades have just skyrocketed to the point that this rapid change we are seeing is more or less out of our control.

We can only hope that at some point humanity and men find a better way to cope and survive this situation but until then we must endure and survive with the tools we have available today. Perhaps with more and more support groups for men coming up like this we can see a similar kind of compassion being shown towards men who have to suffer from these problems quietly.

It sucks that we are expected to be strong when we are just as human and vulnerable as the rest of the non-male populace. Ultimately though, as many men have done throughout history we can get through this too if we just endure and persevere. Ultimately it is usually the last one standing who wins the battle and not the one who retreats or dies first.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
