Genesis 2:18, "And the Lord God said, "It is not good that man should be alone..."
Our society has created this image of strength for men that has become impossible for some to maintain in their personal lives. No matter where you are and where you stand, don't ever feel that you have to be strong all the time and never allow people to discredit your feelings. You are not a robot. Men struggle with the same issues and circumstances that women do and most suffer silently because they are afraid to have people perceive them as weakness. There is such an honor that comes with a man who is able to convey his feelings and needs in a healthy manner. Don't worry about what other men or women think about you, focus on God's thoughts toward you. God made it very clear in His Word that it is not good for a man to be alone, in laymen's terms, it's not healthy for a man to endure the struggles of life without having a vessel to help him carry the weight. If you have a wife, embrace the gifts of God in her and allow her to listen to the issues of your heart in love. For those who are still waiting, keep you some people in your circle who will hold you accountable in love and who don't mind telling you what thus says the Lord. Stay focused, God is with you.
