Women often comment to each other about their boyfriends or husbands…
“I just wish he’d grow up.” Or if they address them directly, “Everything is always about you!”
My wife felt the same way. After some struggling years of marriage, and a lot of difficulty trying to express herself, she had to disconnect emotionally from me. The hurt of feeling unimportant and unaccepted was too painful for her to bear anymore. It felt like she was married to a boy who was unable to see her and relate with how she felt. She had tried to share her feelings with me, but I was too emotionally underdeveloped to “get it.”
You may have a gnawing feeling that something similar is happening in your relationships—personally, in ministry, or in your business. You can’t put a finger on what it is, and you certainly don’t know what to do about it.
That’s why I’ve established this website and am working on a new book — to give you a glimpse into my emotional development and encourage you to take the same journey.
Our misinformed culture teaches men to be guarded, in control and do what we do without asking for help, so we don’t look weak. Unfortunately, this is a damaging message for men and those closest to them. Neuroscience now proves it, and my own experience verifies it. The human brain operates at its best when it is emotionally connected with another brain—feels seen, known, and enjoyed by another person.
That’s what I want you to experience!
My forthcoming book, Real Men Are Vulnerable, explains the how and why of five essential stages to becoming emotionally available in order to experience this satisfying connection.
