Being Blue Hurts
Painting - Soft Pastel On Sanded Paper
While it goes largely un-diagnosed, male depression is one of the leading causes of, well, EVERYTHING! Divorce, joblessness, homelessness, suicide, murder, etc. The cultural norms that shape our society have not yet caught up with what we know about the human psyche, so there is tremendous pressure on men to not admit that something is just not right, and get some help. While they feel good about saving face and toughing it out on a temporary basis, the prospect for long-term productivity in any area of their life diminishes with each day they don't seek help. Everything and every person in their life is affected, offering proof that it does, in fact, hurt to be Blue. ~D.
