The power of love

Boy - Annie Spratt

“From childhood on, little boys are taught not to cry or to express emotions. They are taught to hold on to their feelings. In my opinion, that is a form of child abuse and torture. It’s no wonder that as adults, men express so much anger. In addition, most men regret the lack of a good relationship with their fathers. If you want to see a man cry, give him a safe environment and get him to talk about his father. Usually so much sadness comes up as men speak of all the unsaid things between them and how they wish their childhoods might have been different. How much they wanted to hear from their fathers that they were loved and valuable.”

– Louise Hay, Empowering women.
