Thanks a lot for writing this. I feel more normal already. I can attest to the fact that repressing and denigrating emotions in the workplace can result in a really bad experience for men as well. I’m a very emotional person, and I felt abnormal and alone in the last two workplaces I’ve been in. I don’t like the idea of keeping relationships “professional”, since I find too often the outcome is the suppression of empathy for your co-workers, and you just don’t feel like you can open up if something makes you miserable.
