"Man codes" instruct men on how they should deal with their problems. Combined with negative life experiences, masculine coping strategies lead to: anxiety, sadness, anger, relationship issues/loneliness, shame, and addiction, which characterize so many men's lives. Other hurdles men can face are:
- work/career issues
- constant worry
- obsessions/compulsions/hoarding behaviors
- PTSD: combat or other trauma
- childhood wounds
- feeling like something's missing in life
- grief and loss
- suicidal thoughts
- high-risk, thrill-seeking behaviors like unprotected sex, speeding/drunk driving, danger "sports"
- self-sabotaging/self-destructive behaviors
- being walled off emotionally or feeling numb
- cutting behavior
- rage/violence/criminal behavior
- feeling uncomfortable in your own skin
- lack of confidence
- dating issues
- intimacy issues and fear of committment
- sexual issues like impaired erections or ejaculation
- body image and eating disorders
- chronic health issues
- optimizing and understanding your medications
- sexuality (curious, questioning, gay, bisexual)
- gender (crossdressing; transgender)
and the list goes on and on. If you find yourself somewhere on this list, you're not alone. Many heros battle these demons successfully. But they don't do it alone.
