A Letter To the Black Men Who Carry the World

Dear Black Man,

I see you.

I see the weight you carry, the strength you embody, and the resilience that flows through your veins. You navigate a world that often feels stacked against you, yet you rise, every single day, to be the provider, the protector, and the pillar for your family and community.

For that, I, offer my deepest gratitude. You are the foundation that allows us to dream, the shoulder we lean on, and the unwavering love that guides us through life's storms.

But here's the truth – you don't have to carry this burden alone. The strength it takes to be a Black man shouldn’t equate to suppressing your emotions. To acknowledge your feelings, whatever they may be, is a sign of incredible power.

There was a time, perhaps, when showing vulnerability was seen as a weakness and used against you. For that, I apologize. We, your partners, families, and communities, need to create a space where you feel safe to express yourselves fully. Your emotions matter. They are a part of who you are, and they deserve to be acknowledged.

Sharing your struggles isn't a sign of weakness; it's a testament to your strength. It allows you to connect with those who love you, to find support, and to navigate challenges with greater clarity. It allows us to connect with you on a deeper level, to understand the weight you carry, and to be the support system you deserve.

So, Black man, let's rewrite the narrative. Let's talk about breaking the stigma of Black men's emotions It's time to break free from the societal pressures that tell you to suppress your emotions. Let's create a world where vulnerability is seen as a strength, where open communication becomes the norm, and where you feel empowered to express yourselves fully.

Know that there are countless women, partners, and communities who care about you, who want to hear your voice, and who want to support you on your journey. Find a safe space, a listening ear, and don't be afraid to share.

With appreciation and hope,

-Coach E
