Men- another being burdened

Men – another soul in pain..and pressure
We all see men as the strongest ones, or someone more significant, someone who is bound to protect women or the sole breadwinner of the house, the leader, and many more.
What if they dont want to be all these?
Are we not forcing on them all these?

No matter what, or which age, they are weighed upon with all the responsibilities. They are not given a choice, isn’t it?

If women assert to be encumbered with other gender-specific responsibilities or being a mother, getting married etc… then we need not do the same to the men too.
Stop popularizing that being manly is being a smoker or someone who drinks…
Stop popularizing that being manly is getting a woman pregnant…
Stop popularizing that being a man is like standing up for his woman.. a woman can also stand up for herself.. (let her be independent)
Stop popularizing that being rejected by a girl or someone is a big deal or even questioning their manhood… it’s all a choice.

Normalize the fact that men are human beings…
Normalize the fact that they can also cry and also seek help…
Normalize the fact that they also like being pampered and cared for…
Normalize that men need not man up all the time…

As co-existent humans, we women need to help men and, yes of course men also need to help women too…
Let’s lead a life of happiness not like a pressure cooker.
Change your mindset, before changing others.
Co-existing doesn’t mean ending up in cat fights, things can be amicable too.
Everyone has a role to play in life.
