Yes, everyone goes through these experiences but we all know how much it can hurt at the time. It shows strength when you can admit you are in pain and are struggling to handle things.
A car accident that leaves us paralyzed can also damage us for life. You don’t have to tell the world (and every one you meet) your problems, but at the same token, you most certainly don’t have to hold it all in and suffer in silence.

What I do know is that both can leave us vulnerable. For example, when you first start to date someone and are really into them, yet at the same time you’re still unsure if they’re the right person. One of the best things about friendship is that true friends will be there for you. You may never forget, but in time, it won’t hurt as much. It takes courage to open your heart and let someone in.

If he’s in the wrong, he’ll admit it without much hesitation.
After all, there’s no reason for him to hide his weaknesses.
A high status male has a set of values that he firmly believes in.
