What do men do for “self care”? #mightymen

I ask because I feel women do the bath,nap,nails program, but what do men do to give themselves a break? Video games? Friends, hoops what? Maybe I should be exploring what y’all do cuz nails and baths seem like more work than relaxation, and I’m not really “girly” girl. #Selfcare

#MightyPoets : Social Demolition #ItsOkNotToBeOk

#MentalIllness #Anxiety #Depression #ItsOKMan #MightyTogether #mightymen #taketwo #MentalHealth

Let's teach our sons and daughters how to be human above all,
As opposed to lessons depicting what a "real" man or woman entails,
Let's not confine them to rigid boxes,
That when they don't fit their assigned quarters,
the damage caused to them may be irreparable,
Boxes make splinters and stakes, you know.

Let's teach them to be brave and scared
To fail and succeed,
To handle disappointment and channel anger
To be strong, to help, to persevere, to love, to be kind, to FEEL.

Let's not stick labels of attributes on the sides of boxes...
Tailor made for only but a few:

"Check your genitals, get in the box
Memorize your characteristics
Keep fingers and toes inside the gender mould at all times
Lest the world should snip them off"

Don't let this be their instruction

Let's teach them to be humans by renewing our humanity,
We created a macabre production line, mincing out marred and mutilated souls...
Instead let's create a revolutionary new line,
It will produce characters that do not want to kill themselves or eachother,
The new line will not adhere to "one size fits all" labels,
A fallacy, designed to eradicate diversity
Instead the characters will be encouraged to step out,
We should not be confined to live in boxes,
For the sooner we'll be buried in them!

Feeling Depressed

Feeling very depressed right now.. been struggling a lot lately with money and feeling like a failure... I have a job interview tomorrow that I hope goes well and will hopefully put me back on track career wise and financially. My current job is okay but is not enough to to take care of my bills. My boyfriend has been struggling to find work too. Just a lot going on... #Depression #Anxiety #CheckInWithMe #itsokaytonotbeokay #Movember #mightymen #ItsOKMan #Anxiety #Depression #PTSD #BPD #MensMentalHealth

If you feel like something just isn't right, #ItsOKMan

Long before we have a formal diagnosis, and perhaps before the words "depression" and "anxiety" or some other mental illness enters our heads, our earliest indication that something is wrong is simply that: something just isn't right.

Maybe you don't find joy in the usual things anymore, or you feel a sickening jolt when you hear the screech of a car's tires nearby. Maybe it's a lot of similar things, one on top of the other, and you begin to ask, "what's wrong with me?"

When society says you have to be strong and fearless to be a "real man," it can be hard to attach anything solid like "depression" and "anxiety" to what's going on with you. I get it; I've been there too. I spent too much of my life in a state of uncertainty, unsure what was wrong or what was really right. After all, it's all I knew. Depression? Nah, I didn't think that was possible. Surely I couldn't have . I couldn't have either, despite feeling scared a lot of the time, or feeling utterly lonely even in company. I couldn't tell others; they'd mock me, I thought. They'd say I was making a big deal over nothing; I wasn't being a man. I needed to "man up."

But if you feel this way... #ItsOKMan . You aren't alone, and the best thing I ever did was actually talk about it. Having thoughts and feelings like this doesn't make you any less of a man; our biology is pretty much the same as that of women, after all. Mental illness doesn't discriminate based on which chromosomes we have.

Talk about it. Don't be afraid. We're right there with you, #mightymen . It's going to be OK.

I don’t get why I can go to a party with family one time and then the next time I don’t want anyone touching me or entering my personal bubble.
I have read where some people get depressed or sad when this happens but for me I get angry. I have talked to my therapist about this and he said that it’s a trained response. I taught it to myself from when I was young and has become a defense mechanism.
I respond to personal issues with either laughing or anger. My anxiety issues tend to drive me up into anger more often than not. I am working on my anger/ anxiety issues. I take medication to help me keep balanced and when I’m going to concerts or peoply things I have another medicine to help get me through it.
If you are struggling with anger issues and you have issues you might want to see if they are related. It might help.

I’ve been told that my posts are sad and that I need to just “move on” to get over everything I’ve been through these last two years. It’s really not that easy. The upcoming holidays are the worst. Birthdays. Anniversaries. Random FB memories with meaning. Old pictures. They’re all horribly painful and the feeling of loneliness and not being wanted surges through my body like venom. I even created a private FB group to post thoughts to just so I didn’t feel like some outcast and that I was being judged by my posts. No more. I’m not sorry that my posts are sad...because I am. Heartbroken describes it better. When something in your life happens that you never expect...those feelings are normal. As much as it sucks, it really is ok. I struggle daily with my depression still, but I will not hide my feelings and cover them up just to look happy on the outside when I know different on the inside. I see sadness in my eyes when I look in the mirror. I hate it, but I’m trying to find the happiness still and will continue fighting for those that can’t or won’t. #ItsOKMan #mightymen #dontgiveup #realmenhaveemotions #bigboysdocry
