There is a false belief in America that men need to figure it out on their own, have it all together, or live under the radar and not draw attention to themselves. They are inundated with messages that they need to be strong, suck it up, and not get tied down with emotion. According to many in our culture, men being vulnerable and needing help is a sign of weakness.
Constantly looking to answer the questions of "who am I" and "what am I made of" men seek out answers in a variety of places. Whether it be pouring himself into work, seeking identity in physical strength, or searching for connection in relationships, at the core, men are looking for approval, acceptance, and intimacy. When they are unable to find answers or fulfill needs in healthy ways, the possibility of depression and hopelessness can set in. This can lead to addiction to work, substances, or pornography. In these escapes men are hoping to feel that they have what it takes, that they are enough, but they find over and over again that these addictions never satisfy.
