Sometimes Superman gets the blues.

Every once in a while I just sit down and let some tears fall. In this wild bareback ride we call life, the wheels come off the wagon. I am sometimes asked to do too much, everybody is at some point, but when do the daddy's and good ole' boys get to just loose it. To be frail, tearful?
Something that is well known but kinda ignored is us simple guys that work hard, open doors for a lady-not just our lady but all of them. The men that offer the shoulder to their wives/girlfriends/fuck-buddies and a lap for their children and good hand-out to help a fallen friend.
For any ladies reading this, please, this is not a sympathy note so don't send any. Just some thoughts about being a man.
I own a small business, I have many friends and family close but sometimes the gravity of so many things gets too great and I just need to shed some water.
I drove passed the same graveyard I see everyday and thought nothing of it until I saw two old men sitting by the side of the road. There was no funeral, just two guys comforting each other and it just made me wonder. Why do people need men to almost be "Superman-like" in their opinions? I know times have changed but men are still expected to carry a load, walk the line, sometimes suffer on our own time and still somehow manage to expunge some "femininity" because just being a man isn't enough anymore.
I can't stand it when I say something nice or write something sweet and hear-"Oh, are you getting in touch with your feminine side?" No, I'm not! I'm a man expressing male feelings. Nothing less nothing more. I AM A MAN and have no desire to be a woman.
I sometimes get so busy with work, family and everybody needing more and more that I just crawl away and cry. Not because I'm hurt or angry, just exhausted of "carrying my world-kinda like atlas but with my own little planet" You see, I'm the work,family, and friend do-it-all guy. I love helping, teaching and just simply befriending people. Sometimes this voluntary/involuntary role topples me and many other men with similar lives.
Maybe my role is too big or maybe I'm just a softy. I really don't know nor do I care because I have a great life. Part of that good life is breaking down emotionally now and then. I guess instead of going out and getting shitfaced or ? that some guys may resort to, I just sit in my truck, play a tune that reminds me of a friend long since passed and let it out.
Remember people, sometimes superman need Lois Lane to give him a big hug and tell him he's doing good and He'll be okay. Even though times have changed, men still need to be shown that they're the "champ" or the "man of the house" even if he's not wearing the pants!
Good Men are hard to find but so is finding a woman that understands what a good man is.

Only a real, good man could admit that he cries sometimes. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a man letting loose every once in a while. Yes, life can get overwhelming sometimes and emotions build, and it's not healthy to hold it all in. Ya have to let it go, one way or another.

This was an awesome post. Thank you for taking the time to write it all down and share it with us.

You ARE a good man.
