Don’t show emotion. To cry is to show weakness. Suppress your anger to prove your manhood.
These are the kinds of messages sent by society to boys and young men. As a result, many are left with no healthy outlet for their emotions, which causes those emotions to build up over the course of years and years.

Having experienced this himself, Warren has worked his way through a troubled childhood and past, and come out on the other side. And now, he’s dedicated his life to helping other men do the same.
