I think because men could not cope with pressure, stress or depression (negative things) unlike women because women are emotional and thus easily expresses their feelings right away, and let it out. Men just suck it in and as they continue to suck it in it continues to increase until they cant control/bare it anymore.

I think this is because society often gives men more pressure. If a man is jobless or fails his business, he always feel he will recieve no more respect. And he feels he has no status in the society. In these circumstances, he is especially vulnerable. So if you are his girlfriend, wife or even common friend, stay with him quiety without judgement and without advice. And after a period of time he will stand up again because of your support. Remember do not give advice initiatively until they ask for your advice, because when a woman give advice initiatively to a man, the man will feel that he is not trusted. And he will be hurt to some extend, especially when he is not a guy with extremely strong self-confidence. And do not critize nor complain. In this way, you man will get up more easily and quickly.

I know ,some people have the same acting when they are in tough time . So we should give them who are in lost in life a hope . Let them know ,failur is not dread . Standing up again is the right thing for them . their family need their confidence to come back again.
