It is Important for Men To be Vulnerable in Relationships-Counselor Advises

Advertisement

Charlene Quaye, a counsellor and president of Diamond Pillars Women’s Ministry, believes that men being vulnerable with their female partners is vital in any relationship. She explained that most men are afraid of being emotionally open with their partners because it might make them appear weak and less respected in society. In African culture, men are perceived to be stronger and more powerful than women, and this perception makes it challenging for men to express their emotions.

Quaye explained on Joy Prime’s Morning Show that bottling up emotions is a significant cause of the high suicide rate among men. She urged men to be open with their partners and not to keep their feelings to themselves. Quaye stated that communication is vital for the success of any relationship, and it helps to prevent mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.

Furthermore, Quaye cautioned against the notion of women insisting on being hit before having sex. She described it as a psychological problem and encouraged women to embrace emotional intelligence and have a deeper understanding of their partners.

On the other hand, Maud Ewoenam Agbemafle, a student and entrepreneur, shared her view on the issue, stating that men who share their feelings are more attractive. She urged society to allow men to express themselves and be vulnerable as it could help to reduce the increasing rate of depression and suicide among men.

Ewoenam Agbemafle argued that women who expect their partners to be tough might have grown up without experiencing their fathers’ affection. As a result, they might subconsciously expect their partners to fill the gap by exhibiting toughness towards them. However, she advised that women should not force their partners to meet their expectations and should instead quit the relationship if their needs are not being met.

In a nutshell, it is essential for men to embrace vulnerability in their relationships. By doing so, they can improve communication with their partners, build emotional intelligence, and reduce the risk of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Women should also understand that emotional openness is not a sign of weakness but rather a show of strength and courage.
