Are you stuck feeling like no matter what you do in your relationship, you just can’t seem to connect the dots and see the success you have been striving for?
Do you feel uncertain, dissatisfied and frustrated?
Many men experience this at one or more points in their lives.
Over the last few decades, the psychological needs of men have been receiving greater attention by researchers, psychologists and mental health professionals. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), approximately six million American men suffer from depression every year but they are less likely than women to seek help.
The emotional struggles of men pose particular problems for their relationships. Marriage and intimate relationships require emotional sharing and connection. Emotional intimacy is a two-way street. It requires a back and forth tuning into each other’s feelings.
To be cut off emotionally from ourselves is to be cut off from our spouse/partner.
The research is pretty clear that talking to someone, even a friend or family member, does help with almost everything men struggle with from stress to depression, etc. And, studies have shown that speaking with a mental health therapist more effective than medication for many issues.
