Are Breakups Worse For The Man?
Contrary to popular belief, a recent scientific study suggests that men suffer more from romantic breakups than women do.
“…research showed that though men act tougher and are less likely to outwardly express their distress, rocky relationships tend to have a stronger direct impact on their mental health than on women’s state of mind.”
Though it may sound wrong at first, if we look at this through the perspective of masculine/feminine energies it seems very obvious.
Men are driven by masculine energy and the primary driving force in male energy is direction in life – a mission. In a relationship most men tend to focus on their partner as their mission, so loss of a relationship equals a failure of that mission. Therefore, when a man goes through a breakup it becomes much more than just his heart that’s at stake.
In your experience have you found this true?
