Self Care Isn’t Just For Women.

It’s 2019 and I can confirm that the stereotype about self-care being only for women, is just that, a stereotype. I’m so glad that toxic masculinity is now something that the world is aware of. Men have this idea of how they have to present themselves so that they are seen as manly. After the Male suicide rate has skyrocketed due to men not opening up about their feelings as a result of toxic masculinity, communities everywhere are warning people of the risks of this. I’m declaring that men telling people how they feel, as well as looking after themselves both physically and mentally, is well and truly a mood.

The irony of men who believe otherwise to this, is that self-care is something that a lot of people find attractive in a potential partner. Opening up about your feelings can come across sensitive, vulnerable and therefore endearing to all. In terms of looking after yourself physically, everyone wants to look good and be on a good looking persons arm. And finally, someone who has their own back is always a good thing because it takes a bit off of your workload as an S.O because you know what they say… you can’t help someone who doesn’t want to help themselves.
