No guy wants to feel weak or look weak.
That’s why we don’t ask for help.
So when I was feeling down I kept it to myself.
Then the depression got worse.
So I talked to a buddy who got me to a website and some counseling.
Now I’m taking care of business and feeling much better.
I’m still a tough guy, just one who needed a little help.
OK, I admit it, I NEVER ask for directions.
In fact, I don’t ask for help period.
I’m a guy.
But I’ve evolved.
I figured out that if I didn’t get some assistance for my depression I wasn’t going
to be good for anything.
So I got help for the people that love me and depend on me.
I still don’t ask for directions.
When my marriage ended I wasn’t prepared for the feelings I was having.
I figured I’d pick myself up and get on with the next chapter of my life.
Boy was I wrong.
I started getting really depressed.
My best friend finally sat me down and said he didn’t think I was gonna come out
of it without some professional help.
I got some counseling and learned how to talk about my feelings.
I wish I had done something sooner, but I’m a guy.
