Men On Purpose Podcast


May 28, 2018

Men are often discouraged from showing the full range of human emotion, so we suppress the feelings we deem as unacceptable—to the detriment of our mental health. But experiencing sorrow or fear is not the sign of weakness we’ve been led to believe. Rather, we should be leveraging our feelings as a navigation system for life. Real men DO feel.

Andy Grant is a transformational energy coach who helps clients create major shifts in their lives in order to reach greater levels of happiness and success than ever before. He is also the host of Real Men Feel, a podcast featuring discussions and interviews that explore what it means to be a man while exploring spirituality, personal growth and relationships. Andy has written five Amazon bestselling books, and he writes a weekly column on masculinity and mental health for the Good Men Project.

Today, Andy joins Emerald to share his difficult childhood and describe how those experiences led to multiple suicide attempts. He explains how being brave enough to ask for help marked a turning point in his life and why men have the right to feel the entire range of human emotions. Andy offers insight on examining where your view of masculinity originated, allowing negative emotions to pass through, and using your feelings as a navigation system. Listen in to understand the distinction between being a person with emotion as opposed to embodying the emotion itself.
