Man up and talk about your emotions! Did you know, it is society’s fault that men have this attitude of the toughen up princess syndrome… Let’s face it, when a 2yo girl falls over what do we do? We empathize, provide emotional support and reassurance. When a 2yo boy falls over, what do we do? toughen up princess! Yes we have been psychologically programming children over the generations to act and respond in a particular way, thanks to feminism for identifying the inequality. Therefore say you grow up with mum n dad stuck in the 1800s this is going to result in old fashion expectations, assumptions, beliefs, morals in comparison to say someone grow up within a single parent house hold, or raised by highly educated parents. So when someone says toughen up princess… what do you think? Personally, I think your poor soul… Deprived of emotional intellect and general overall well being.
Moral of the story why does this mean it’s ok to hold your believes above another’s? Simply, in other words who died and make you king of philosophical thoughts? Being an avid researcher and higher academic relating to sociological, psychological and environment conditioning, I must point out, for all the princes out there who are toughen up, you may be a king, a king of your own lunch box. On this note, continuously hearing and seeing responses like harden up, just makes me question, as an employer perhaps the industry needs to implement debriefing sessions or perhaps a little cognitive behaviour therapy within the workplace environment could hold the answer to achieving respect and empathy out on site – thinking I should get out pen and paper and create a CBT course to address the stigma and irrational beliefs about the human species. What do you think about the matter?
