Masculinity, Anxiety, and Depression
Charlie Scaturro

Depression does not care whether you are a man, woman, strong, weak or whatever. If it hits you, it hits you. For me, I was legitimately a weak person a few years back when my own depression really anchored me in place for a long time. Through a lot of personal suffering, a lot of soul searching to boot, I learned that the only way to become strong enough to cope with it is to face it with enthusiasm.

These days, I consider myself “stronger” because I have grown to understand what depression is and how it has affected me over the years. Just like working out in the gym, you have to take your lumps before real strength starts to show. As coaches often tell us, “Pain is weakness leaving the body.”

If that is the case, I sure had a lot of weakness in my body…
