Why Men Don’t Tell

Many men cope with being abused by taking on a macho “I can handle it” attitude. Even if you have been hurt much worse than on an athletic playing field, that is not the same thing as being physically attacked by your intimate partner, which hurts emotionally as well as physically. Allowing this pattern to continue can result in depression, substance abuse, loss of confidence, even suicide. Remember, you have rights to have respect and to be treated in a loving, caring manner. Love does not equal hurt. Tell me if you think there is more abuse tendencies to your partner’s anger outburst. Do you think you try to minimize this?
