Why Men refuse to get therapy- Vulnerability=Weakness

Why Men refuse to get therapy- Vulnerability= Weakness

In Brene Brown’s book- “Daring Greatly” she talks about being vulnerability in order to start getting the help we need. That showing that vulnerability is the first step in admitting you may need to get help. But as a man that last thing we want to be considered is vulnerable because in the masculine world that is a sign of weakness. As a male showing weakness brings on the feeling of shame. Simply put for men showing Vulnerability = Weakness= Shame.

So it looks like this for males:

  1.        That someway “Asking for help” = weakness for males

  2.       That it is un-masculine to ask for help and therefore “shameful”.

  3.        To show “shame” is embarrassing or a sign of weakness

Give your mind a Chill Pill by using Online Therapy & Online Life Coaching

When you go down the road of life, nothing is perfectly straight or leveled. You may encounter the metaphorical sharp turns, frequent road bumps or even the occasional potholes. These things can come in several forms such as drug addiction, depression, traumatic events etc. And if not dealt with, can affect our lives negatively. The above mentioned bumps can become mental disorders and the process of dealing with them is called therapy or counseling.
