Why do men avoid their Mother Wounds? Awareness and acknowledgment of his Mother Wound is typically a huge taboo for a man as it is for almost any wounding of a male by a female.

Until we're ready as a culture to explore and address the causes and implications of that, I don't think we're going to get too far in addressing the more dramatically problematic and damaging behaviors some men exhibit with women. That's the extreme end of the scale and is not representative of the behavior of the majority of men, but as explored earlier in this piece, there are many other negative if less visible and less dramatic dynamics in men's lives that develop as a consequence of unresolved Mother Wounds.

We simply cannot have an emotionally and psychologically healthy society without emotionally and psychologically healthy men.
