This is also what happens in relationships when women take so much on the masculine and is hard-strung on this dynamic. Relationships need balance, and in this case, men will start taking on the feminine and dive into the emotional side if they’re not taught to control or get in touch with their feelings, confusing both people. The way a masculine man can maintain his masculinity while in a relationship with a masculine woman is to take lead. Men should be a witness to where the burden is, not give women the responsibility on how to un-burden her, and be a witness to how they can participate in leading. Simply, just doing it without asking. Mental Health in MenDepression looks like in men like it does in anybody else, but no one pays attention to it. We’ve adopted the fact that this is what’s normal for men when in fact, majority of them are actually very depressed and they don’t even know it. A lot of it is high-functioning depression where they’re going to work and doing well in their job, but they have to take a drink when they come home because they can’t sleep, they can’t shut down, their brain is constantly going “you have stomach issues”, they’re full of anxiety, they can’t connect with people, have no enjoyment, and while all of this is happening, we just think, “oh, this is every man”. This is precisely the problem. Men don’t realize that they can live a life that is free of anxiety and that they don’t have to take a shot before they go to bed, that they can actually sleep peacefully, and they can actually enjoy their lives. They don’t even recognize that this could be a possibility for them, and this is what Elise aims to solve, or at least alleviate, among these troubled men.Links Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, WebsiteMeta-DescriptionMen’s coach Elise Micheals dives deep into the social stigma surrounding men’s mental health, trauma, toxicity, and how they can become better people and partners in their relationships.

First of all anti racism education does not teach that blond haired people are bad. Second of all, the traditionalist view that because the man is physically bigger means that he should be the leader is goofy. The smartest wisest person needs to lead. The biggest person needs to guard the door for sure but lead? I don't get the connection. And then all that misrepresentation of feminism - oh my heavens!
hey Candice. Thanks for the interview with Josh Wilson. I will listen to him too. the part that got me is when you said that some people need a hardship to change their life around. Im going to hardship at my present job due to political views (I'm a conservative and I am with Trump) and I'm surrounded by liberal and socialists sympathisers. So I'm planning on quitting this coming Monday the 19th because I found a new job. love the work you do, before and now. Keep up the awesome work. Ramon
