WHEN A MAN IS FREE TO CRY— HE IS FREE TO LOVE
I will never forget my wedding day—especially when my best man Gabe Green jokingly threatened that he would hit me if I started crying when my soon to be wife (Nicole) walked down the isle. Sadly, I submitted to misconstrued masculinity and suppressed the emotions associated with seeing the woman I prayed for walk down the isle to join me at the alter.
Unfortunately, this mentality followed me into marriage—my emotional seclusion almost cost me my marriage. It wasn’t until I became a comprehensive man, was I able to freely love my wife without fearing she would take advantage of my transparency.
I salute this young man in this video—I wish I had the courage he had to cry and express the love my wife deserved to see on such a special day. #CryLikeAMan–https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0830775943/
