Jules from Married At First Sight has shared an important message about mental health after people questioned her husband Cam for crying on Monday night's show.
During the episode, Cam was shown breaking down in tears. This was portrayed as being in response to some of the drama at the Commitment Ceremony, something Jules was also upset about.
This was met with surprise by some commenters on social media, who reacted negatively to Cam crying.
However Jules has now hit out, explaining that while there was another element to his break down, there shouldn't be any issues with a man crying.
Jules explained on Instagram, "My husband mentors young kids regarding mental health and he had some very VERY sad news."
Now we've got that out of the way, here is her full comment on mental health - and she absolutely nails it.
"It’s ok to not be ok... I’m absolutely saddened and angry at all the trolling done tonight regarding my husband showing his emotions. Honestly I truly believe that it is a sign of strength in a man to be able to cry.And the world needs to be educated . Suicide is the leading cause of death for young men and I passionately believe it’s because they bottle everything up!!!! Cam cried. Because he cares, it wasn’t just the experiment, my husband mentors young kids regarding mental health and he had some very VERY sad news. It was a build up of so Many things.Im proud of my husband. It’s ok for men to cry. Especially when it’s a selfless act !! #letitout #justsay#mentalhealth"
Her message was echoed by other participants on the show, with Billy sharing that he had been trolled online after crying on MAFS last week.
"Amen to that sister, you preach it... I was moreso trolled by women than men when I burst into tears, it shocked me," Billy commented.
Cam also took to his own Instagram account to reflect on why it is more than ok for men to cry.
"I feel no matter what you are going through, its ok to show emotions, to shed tears, to be vulnerable, no matter male or female it’s ok sometimes not to be ok I have been strong throughout, for my wife, my friends & for others but sometimes certain circumstances both within the experiment & outside life takes a small toll & we fall.. that’s ok," he wrote.
What a positive message - our mental health is so important, and there is nothing wrong with anyone crying!
