How men feel trapped

Dear Women by Faisal Khokhar

“Dear Women,

Beneath our macho driven ego lies a human who feels all the emotions just as you do – from the incredible highs to the extreme lows. Our underdeveloped tools and knowledge on how to deal with our emotions has failed us. As a result, we hurt the people around us with our sharp edges. When we hurt you, it is because we are hurting; but we’re good at hiding our true emotions. By hiding them, we’ve been wrongly taught that we are safe, yet the world inside us can be often be anything but safe. This scares us, so the little boy within lashes out and as you know, people who need the most love ask for it in the most unloving of ways.

Equally, this year I have met some of the most amazing, inspiring and loving men who have shone light onto our darkest times. Standing passionately and fearlessly to show the true spirit of masculinity and feminine essence, staying grounded even when life appears against them.

With the rise of conscious men, we’re slowly getting the support needed, from both men and women. We are decades behind you women in becoming more self-aware. However, there is a new breed of men rising with the full might of the healthy masculine power to restore our true essence as humans alongside you, respecting, appreciating and loving one another.

And by god, do we love you women! Your presence, your beauty, your warmth, your love and your smile is like flooding our body intravenously with rocket fuel. When we fall in love, we built the grandest, tallest and spectacular buildings just to prove in our ways that you are the wonder of our world.

Here is to all the men and women!

With Love
Faisal Khokhar
