Are you looking for a place to drop the Superman cape and just be the real you? To talk about your dreams and fears, your failures and successes, with no repercussion or judgment?
For a man, going to therapy does not make you “weak.”
It makes you human.
And that’s precisely what you have been long forbidden to be.
Big boys don’t cry.
You throw like a girl.
What are you, gay?
You’re such a momma’s boy.
Nice guys finish last.
Grow some balls!
You’re too sensitive.
Suck it up!
Don’t be a pussy.
What are you, a girl?
A man is the provider!
Men aren't supposed to cry!
Don't show weakness.
You can't handle this?
You can't get it up?
You mean you can't fix that?
Be my knight in shining armor!
I have to endure the world's problems while denying my own.
Why can't you be more sensitive? (Gee, I wonder how that happened….)
I'm required to tolerate your mother!? (optional)
Which one "wins" out?
You end up with a false self, which you are then internally tasked to defend.
Good luck with that!
Let’s give you permission to be
heard • acknowledged • validated • respected
and who you truly want to be.
