19th November is celebrated worldwide every year to commemorate the contributions and achievements of men at different levels ranging from family, community, workplace and nationally.
The theme for this year’s is “better health for men and boys”. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being;it is all encompasssing. It is worthy of mention that this aspect has been neglected and exposing men to mental and emotional disorders and trauma. In recent times, the rate of suicide amongst men is on a go.
Health goes to productivity, managing stress and relationships. Men do so much to earn a living and barely enjoy living. And today, your well being has become of vital concern to our collective survival. The socio_economic pressure and demands can be irksome. Honestly, It’s hard being a man out there.
It’s hard going through laborious days and still keeping your fun spirit in tact. How do you live such selfless lives and always putting the needs of others before yours?
In the midst of tremendous socio_economic crisis and moral decadence, we employ you to take your health more seriously. This neglect has birthed a lot of ingenuity, illments, gender rivalry, sexual violence et al.
Men suffer from social exclusion as the boy child is often neglected even at a tender age. He’s just expected to be fine somehow. The society in my opinion will be a better place if even attention is given to both gender at early development and adulthood.
Today, we celebrate all men. Keep being true to thyself, the world is a better place with you in it.
We value you!
Your achievements are not unnoticed!
Your contributions are greatly appreciated!
Thank you for your love and sacrifices.
Happy international men’s day.
