5) He will focus on his masculine side.
Years of social conditioning has convinced men that concealing their feelings, and never being emotional is the true definition of being a real man. And that is exactly what an emotionally broken man does.
When he experiences heartbreak, and any other kind of pain, his first instinct is to pretend that he doesn’t care, and that he isn’t supposed to care because that’s what real men do. For him, his feelings are his biggest enemy, and he will try hard to never let them come to the surface.
So he will continue to bottle his emotions up, to the point where he is broken beyond repair.
6) He feels lonely.
An emotionally broken man will go to the ends of the earth to show that he is fine, by hiding his emotions deep inside his heart. That is why he feels lonely not just in his heart and mind, but also when he is around his loved ones.
He is fighting with his emotions for control all the time, and he is always scared of people seeing his softer, vulnerable side. No matter how hard he tries, it seems impossible to run from the truth.
The hurt, pain and loneliness that he feels can be made better by people who love him, but he can never trust someone enough to show this side of him.
7) He tries to do more than what is expected of him in relationships.
Even when he is emotionally damaged, and have had his heart broken he still has a lot of love, support and kindness to offer. When an emotionally broken man falls in love with someone, he will always try to do anything and everything in his power to make his partner happy.
But, he will never open himself up truly. He will do anything for his partner, he will go to any lengths to see them smiling, but when it comes to him and his feelings, he will always choose to conceal them.
8) He is always very careful.
That is what being emotionally broken does to you. Every man who is like this calculates all the pros and cons before diving into something, especially relationships. Due to his lack of trust, he can never just let it go, and believe that he will not get hurt this time.
Because he has been let down over and over again, he feels scared and apprehensive of putting his already fragile trust into the hands of somebody else.
It’s is always difficult for him to even be in a healthy relationship, because he has never known a relationship like that.
Well, these are the things that an emotionally broken man goes through. They are less understood by society but they exist and mostly exist in pain and sadness, because they have always been made to feel that men who show their emotions, and be vulnerable are not real men. It’s time we change this thought and help them embrace their feelings and emotions.
