Societal Norms and Emotional Repression

However, societal norms have long confined men within a rigid framework of masculinity, discouraging them from openly expressing their struggles. The pressure to conform to these stereotypes creates a barrier and bans men from seeking support or sharing their hardships, leading to a sense of isolation and emotional repression.

An Empathetic Society

Instead of putting individuals in boxes, we should allow for openness and flexibility in society. No task should be based on gender and no individual should be taken for granted. Instead, everybody should be given the space to be themselves and to be able to express themselves without the fear of judgement. It is only then we can truly build a happy world.
