My brothers, you don’t have to “produce” to be worthy Father

I don’t know who else needs to read this. I know i do.

“My brothers, you don’t have to produce to be worthy.”

Many men value their ability to “produce”, supply and protect. This is exactly why the current pandemic is difficult for many of us. Many men combine their identity with their performance; When this ability is weakened or disappears, we feel swallowed up in the deep emptiness of fear. Although I know this theoretically, I have not been socialized in this way. The deeply rooted performative and restrictive view of masculinity is part of me; and I know it’s part of many of us. That is why it is up to us to speak openly about it and change it.

If we don’t value ourselves and ourselves, how can we expect society to do this? If men want empathy and compassion from the world, we have to have empathy and compassion for ourselves and for each other. Society knows how to shame men, how to punish men, but society is currently unable to deal with men’s emotional wounds: it should come as no surprise, given that men have “set the rules” for so long.

You are a (hu) man, not a human.

Here are 6 steps we can all take today.

  • We have to stop using emotional stoicism as the norm for “practicing masculinity”.
  • We have to break the deadly cycle of isolation and silence that leaves us separated and unfulfilled.
  • We need to let little boys know that it’s okay to feel and express feelings outside of anger. We have to make them cry when they need.
  • We have to speak openly about our psychological problems and our struggles.
  • We have to give priority to our health: physically, mentally and emotionally.
  • We need to make a conscious effort to consider the full range of our emotions and learn how to process our emotions in a healthy way.

All this to say, my brothers, that you are worthy; even if you are tired, unproductive, sick, struggling, unemployed, sad or worried.

Fortunately, many Advocates and Organizations reinforce this important message and promote mental, emotional and community care for men.

You are doing the best you can.

You don’t have to “produce” anything to have intrinsic value.

Internalize this important message:

  • You don’t have to “produce” to be worthy.
  • You don’t have to “produce” to be worthy.
  • You don’t have to “produce” to be worthy.

You too are a (hu) man, not a human.
