Today I am joined once again  by Dxter Spitz, the visionary behind the "How Men Cry,"  movement, revolutionizing men's mental health. We delve into the complexities of masculinity, exploring themes of compassion and authenticity, and Dxter's refreshing perspective challenges conventional stereotypes, emphasizing the strength found in vulnerability. Before wrapping up, Dxter leaves us with some sage advice;  "Vulnerability can be your greatest asset."
