Welcome to another episode of the Manlihood ManCast, where we dive deep into the issues facing modern masculinity. In today’s episode, we’re delving into a thought-provoking Reddit post that shines a light on a significant challenge concerning men’s mental health. About a month ago, Reddit user Venusemerald2 posted a thread on the r/AskMen subreddit titled “Im worried about men’s mental health. Men, who do you confide in 100%?” The post not only sparked a fascinating discussion but also raised essential questions about men’s emotional well-being and their struggles when seeking support.
The post’s initial inspiration came from a comment in another thread, suggesting that women don’t care about men’s feelings. Our host, Josh Hatcher shares his insights on the perception of men’s emotional expression and how it impacts their willingness to open up. We explore the question posed in the post: Who do men confide in 100%? Is it their fathers, brothers, friends, or someone else entirely?
Venusemerald2’s post generated an unexpected influx of responses, sparking a robust discussion within the Reddit community. Some of the most compelling and insightful comments from the thread are highlighted, along with thoughts from our listeners on this important issue.
The Path Forward
We tackle the crucial question raised in the post: “Where do men get their strength from?” We explore potential solutions and strategies for improving men’s mental health and fostering better emotional support within relationships. It’s a call to action for all of us to create a healthier environment for men to express their emotions and seek help when needed.
