This is something that many men don’t realise, and they don’t want to show this because they feel they may be thought less of, criticised, and be thought of as “weak.” “Identify the issue, and make a plan to solve it. And the best thing to do is to speak to someone about it - it helps release some of the burden by talking it out.”“Don’t just sit on the problem. You have to take the first step to try solving it.”“Please be concerned and considerate about wildlife as well. They are also part of our world, and deserve an equal place on this earth.”Connect with Chandra11Instagram Stay Connected with Little Wisdom Website Instagram Facebook Thanks for tuning in!
