Yes, Boys Must Cry
June 11, 2015
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
How often were you told: Don't cry. You're fine. It doesn't hurt. That's enough now. Pull yourself together. Don't be a crybaby. Or maybe even: Stop crying or I'll give you something to really cry about. I'd like to think that this doesn't happen anymore, but I know better. Boys get a much heavier dose of this kind of training than girls do. We have a distorted idea of what it means to be strong. The truth is that strength develops by allowing ourselves to feel. That's what it means to be human. We must learn for ourselves and then teach our children that feelings are normal. It is not only OK to cry, it is necessary. Tears actually have a healing chemical in them. It's part of our body's wisdom and innate drive to heal. Strength is when we come out the other side, knowing that we can handle more than we ever thought possible. We must be open to all of our feelings, including pain in order to feel empathy and love. Join us Thursday to learn the importance of feeling in healing abuse.
Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit
Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.
The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
