When Men Grieve
A man’s grief is just as deep, just as acute, just as real and difficult as anyone’s. The expression of that grief may differ from man to man, or from a mans to that of a woman. The uniqueness of our grief stems as much from our individual personalities as it does from our relationship with the loved one who has died, or to cultural differences and to changing stereotypes. There are, however, physiological and anthropological, as well as sociological differences that characterise aspects of masculine grief. Understanding them allows us to better fulfill each other’s needs in time of loss.
