Men and Heartbreak


 Men and Heartbreak
Recognizing the stereotypes our society places upon men can help us support men through heartbreak.

Family history, personal history, and biochemistry will continue to be the primary factors when analyzing emotional health. In conjunction with these markers, I believe we should acknowledge the culture we live in. If people recognize the suppressive stereotypes our society places upon men, perhaps they will be more skilled at helping men through heartbreak. Of course, a man’s free will and personal accountability are considerations that need to be examined.

He is the only person who can save himself from the insanity of heartbreak.
