Is it damaging t men’s mental health to be told to ‘man up’?
This was a question that mindset coach, Dave Cottrell from Mindset by Dave helped to answer.
“I wouldn't say these phrases are NEVER appropriate, but they certainly aren't something you want to say to anyone with which you don't have that kind of relationship. Therefore, the use of them in headlines, news stories or even social media posts from someone with whom you don't have a friendly relationship will almost certainly be triggering.”
When it comes to offering tips on how to improve your mental health, Dave Cottrell, mindset coach from Mindset by Dave was the perfect person to share his wisdom and insights.
“We all have failings in life, but there’s a huge difference between saying ‘I failed at this’ and ‘I’m a failure’. Try to avoid placing labels on yourself if they encourage you to feel bad about yourself. We don’t really have motivation; we have momentum – and momentum can work both ways.”
