As a man who lives with depression, I believe facing our emotions when we need them to can impact our well being for the better.

I have kept a lot of pain, to myself over the years. As I had to uphold the standards that were forced upon me.

But now things have changed, and I have changed. As I have paid the price in full, and know that I too can feel anew If I want to.

Thank you for writing this, Tony! Perhaps there is hope for all of us.

If men start openly sharing feelings of the heart, it might give courage to the many men who still keep their anguish locked away in their hearts.

That they too can break free from it all.

Keep shinning your light on all of us.

Peace onto you.

Stay Blessed and Stay Safe!
