My mom left my dad for another man and left all financial work with him. He held it in as long as he could, but broke out in tears at our kitchen this afternoon. One thing I will remember is not that I saw my father crying, but that he actually thought he had to apologize.
Dad: I’m sorry for crying.
Me: Dad, you’re aloud to cry.
Dad: No, I’m not. Men aren’t supposed to cry.
Men aren’t supposed to cry? Men are human, just like women. Society is so fucked up, it teaches smart men like my dad that he is now weak and undependable because he has emotion. If you are a man, please know, you are aloud to cry. You are aloud to be human. People have feelings, not just women."
