great Job! … love to be like you when i grow


Thank you all for the warm welcome.

It’s an honor to be here discussing a topic that has become a necessity in recent times


First let me start by saying that women are not more emotional than men.

I know this is a common believe within the corners of our environment but as a therapist I have seen men break down in absolute tears and it’s absolutely okay


Hmmmmmm :ok_hand:


Emotions are simply channels of expression for our sadness , joy , pleasure or displeasure.

Again. I know its been often said that anger is a bad emotion, but from wide body of research and personal findings I have observed that anger is a double edged sword.

In that it depends largely on how you hold the weapon.




Finally, Someone Agrees


The reason why it appears that women are more emotional than men is because culture, not only in Africa promotes the stiffness of men towards accepting and acknowledgement of their genetic make up.

So a man must not be seen in tears publicly else he runs the risk of been taken seriously


So bravery is juxtaposed with lack of emotions, when in the real sense bravery is emotional intelligence.
