In the words of our CEO,” whoever told men not to show emotions forgot to tell them not to have emotions at all. Now, we have men dying from emotions that they’ve refused to show”- On the outside, one will think that the majority of men are happy. Masked in their poise and faux happiness, a large percentage of men are unhappy, so much so that they have resorted to taking their own lives. Statistics show that for every one woman that commits suicide, four men have taken their lives.
They call it weakness when a man tries to be normal. Toughen up, they say, don’t you know you’re a man? If you appear vulnerable, the world will eat you up. So men create a version of themselves that wasn’t supposed to exist so they can fit into the mold created by the society. And so, influenced by their backgrounds and environments, they conform to society’s definition of dominancy. This is not to say men are bad in any case; it is to say that men are not immune to emotional problems. Hence the need to create awareness of the struggles men go through.
We dare to ask men, Are You Happy? The responsibilities of life are ever increasing, the commitment to family is unending and the desire to speak out those silent lost thoughts is consuming.
So we ask again, are you Happy?
