the clichéd challenge of manliness
Gentlemen. Isn’t it time to reject the demeaning statement that men need to ‘MAN UP’ when it comes to their mental health?
We’ve all heard the stories. Guys who describe that something’s been missing from their life, or that they’ve been silently struggling with pain or unresolved problems for years, but have been reluctant to reach out because of the stigma associated with seeking help.
The promising news is that attitudes are shifting. The pejorative message of how a man should tend to his mental health is slowly eroding. The barriers and stereotyping that have held men back from seeking help are eroding. Let’s transform the meaning of ‘man up’ by adopting an alternative stance!
Simon’s mission is to help men navigate life’s greatest obstacles by offering practical and enduring ways to increase their sense of resilience, purpose, and connection; while respecting and celebrating their identity as a man.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER TO YOU?
Because sucking it up, feeding the volcano inside, or turning a blind eye to your problems shouldn’t be your go-to strategy in life.
Yes, there are alternatives to this strategy that so many men adopt. When guys expand their repertoire of problem-solving skills and techniques or explore new ways of seeing the world around them, new experiences can be realized and real change can occur.
Maybe now is the time to answer the voice that challenges you to do something different. Sadly, there’s no magic wand for all of this stuff. Just a bit of tenacity, some smarts, and some elbow grease. Yet, you’re not alone. You can choose to get some help in your corner.
It is my goal to provide men with resources and community to support them in authoring a life that truly aligns with the values, strengths, and ambitions that reside within them.
