Let’s face it, as women we can worry a lot about a lot of things, am I right? We can worry about anything from money, our careers, our livelihoods, our families, motherhood, getting pregnant. In truth anyone of us can worry about anything, but men are perceived to not worry or let things get to them. Or so it may seems. You see men worry about all sorts, some very similar to us, and some you may be surprised to read.
I always think it is a good idea to be more aware of what our partner, boyfriend, or husband could be worried about, as it can help you to function through life itself as a team. Which is why I thought I would share with you some of the biggest worries men can have, and perhaps it could enlighten you to how the man in your life could be feeling or worrying about right now.
Hair loss is such a big worry for men. A lot of men get to a certain age and notice their hair thinning on the top or they begin to get a receding forehead where more hair is worn away. Some men embrace it, but others really struggle with the hair loss and find that they start to lose their confidence over it. However, there are things you can do to help. You can consider taking a hormone that can boost the productivity of the growth of hair follicles. You can have a look online the cheapest we found was on websites like online pharmacies. You could also consider things like hair transplants or other surgery options to encourage the hair to grow back.
The midlife crisis
Surprisingly, it isn’t just women that worry about this, men do to. The midlife crisis is known to hit a lot of men, and some women, when they hit a certain age and start to question things in their lives. It might be that they are worried about what they have achieved in life, or feeling like they haven’t done enough. The common scenarios is that you a man will buy a sports car or fast motorbike, leave their partners for a younger model, and reinvest in their youth. But more commonly a midlife crisis can just be a worry of where their life is going and even things like if they are providing enough. It is a worry for men and something that should be discussed rather than bottled up.
Their bodies and putting weight on
Yes you read that right, men worry about their beach bodies as well. In all seriousness though, just as much as women can threat about their weight and putting on the pounds, so can men and it can be a huge confidence knock to their self esteem if they used to have a muscular body and now struggle to keep the weight off. Thankfully, a lot of men can be very disciplined when it comes to what they eat and the exercise that they take so it could be that this is an easy worry to fix.
Not excelling in their career or not providing
Years ago, it used to be perceived that the man would supply the income for the family and be what is known as the main “breadwinner” but in today’s modern society this isn’t always the case anymore. Women have risen the rankings and taken some of the top jobs and now when it comes to their careers and providing for the family men are starting to see this as a huge concern for them when they reach a certain time in their lives. While it isn’t about being the main earner, it is important to feel satisfied with your own journey.
Health can also be a big worry for men, and their are some health concerns particularly things like prostate cancer that can only affect a man that can be a huge worry to them. The health and their future health can be a concern as again men worry about being a main provider for their family or being the constant and solid entity of it. There are other health issues men worry about and now mental health is in the spotlight as lot more thanks to news and even major TV shows dealing with the raw subjects of mental health. However, it is now more common than ever before for men to come forward and speak about dealing with mental health issues. Years ago it just wouldn’t be spoken about, but with suicide rates rising more men are coming forward with their worries and concerns. It is definitely a huge step in the right direction, but will still be a worry for men to consider feeling and handling it.
Being a good father, husband and/or partner
Sometimes when it comes to matters of the family, it may seem that only women worry and get stressed about motherhood and parenting, and everything that comes with being apart of a family such as relationships and making time for every aspect of it. However, men worry about this to. They can worry about their relationship, whether they are good enough, but the big concern to them is whether or not they are or will be a good father. Perhaps not having a decent role model to look back on or simply wanting to be different, men struggle with this, and can also find it hard if the relationship breaks down and trying to be there for their family.
Finally, money can be one of the biggest stresses and worries people have these days and men more so than women can find that they are worrying about it on a daily basis. Ensuring they have enough to provide for their family and pay all of the bills, and keeping things afloat when money is tight or life throws a curveball. It is definitely one of the major worries a man can have and one that is always going to be an underlying factor of life.
I hope that this has made you more aware of some of the issues many men can face and worries that they have. We perhaps have more in common than we may once thought.
