So, apparently Men have feelings.
It's hard to tell unless they carry a sign saying so. They do so well to hide them and then BAM! One day you see it. It can be a shocking thing (cause you know...most of them hide it VERY well. Dudes be having a whole 10-year crush on you and you'd NEVER even know it!) but it can also be a pretty thing if you yourself are in the right state of mind emotionally...I mean, if he let you see him feeling his feelings (and he's not faking to get outta some bullshit he did)...then you must be special cause they shonuff don't show them shits to anybody. Do you hear me? ANYBODY. Not even their own family members a lot of times.
That's why it's important to honor his feelings.
If he's a good dude, and he's shared his vulnerable parts with you, honor that. Receive him in a way that makes sense to him and if you don't know what that is...ask him. If he doesn't know...then just stfu and be there. Sometimes just being is enough when someone is feeling all their feelings. Let him know he's got a safe spot to let that shit out ESPECIALLY if he's been good to you, Sis. We cannot stress this enough. If he's a good dude, treats you right, and is there for you when you have your emotional outbursts and thunderstorms, then keep that same energy with him.
Ya'll should have a safe space to share ya'll soft spots with each other...you're supposed to be each other's shelter in this savage ass world...neither one of ya'll should feel silly sharing yourself with the other...otherwise, wtf are ya'll really doing?
