Crying a river of tears

Real men don't cry.

I'm sorry, I don't agree with this at all. Why is it that we have taught our men in our society that to be a true man we can't show our emotions? Why do men have to walk around town looking like a a robot been sent back in time to kill John Connor?

I saw this quote:

"Please teach your sons it's ok to cry. Crying releases negative energies from the body. This allows boys/men to not walk around mad and bitter." - Lalah Delia

I agree with this 100%.

You often see men walking around with what looks like a big chip on their shoulder. They look miserable and if you just happen to look at them the wrong way, they are going to kick your behind to Timbuktu.

Why is this?

Because we as a society have this idea that strong equals not crying and we have to suppress our emotions.

Sure, as a man, you probably don't want to walk around crying at the drop of a hat but sometimes you may need to let it go on occasions. Sure, you don't have to draw attention to yourself but if you just do it the privacy of your own room, you might find that you feel better.

There are a lot of rules in society that just don't make sense from my point of view. A man not crying is definitely one of them.
