Sad man cannot cry in place where man can see
Never witnessed father weep
This old man thought it weak
Men usually hide their emotions from others as it’s seen by society as a sign of weakness or “unmanly”.
A father usually won’t cry in front of their family because they want their family to see them as this invincible figure. Just like societies view of what is manly and what isn’t.
