Contrary to popular belief, men do cry – they’re human after all. However, society has conditioned us to believe that real men shouldn’t express their emotions or vulnerability. This is why seeing them break down in tears may catch some people off guard or even come as unwelcome news.

We’ve been taught to associate crying with weakness mainly because women are known for being more expressive than men on average. But research shows that crying can benefit your mental health regardless of your gender.

Love and Loss

Love is like a powerful drug; once you start using it regularly (or falling), you’ll feel its effects intensely every time your partner isn’t around. Hence when their absence becomes inevitable whether through death or breakup,men might become overwhelmed with emotion and trickle out tears as an expression of frustration.

It takes time and patience even years sometimes for one grief stricken individual to get back on track .


When someone we care about faces adversity,difficulty like medical conditions,a new job,new environment,tough social situation among others,it’s natural our heartbreaks too if we see them struggling.Accordingly,you may witness male folks shedding tears out affection while consoling someone who cannot help but be upset due to whatever circumstances.

Relieving Emotions

Have you ever noticed how refreshed and rejuvenated you feel after a good cry? Tears can also help men vent pent up emotions e.g anger,stress,or sadness shed that burdened load; by bawling over situations they cannot control, they find relief. In this scenario, crying may prove therapeutic rather than traumatizing.
