He bares all these necessary things and doesn’t want to share it with others.
  • Confidence is a major problem –You can easily feel that a broken man’s confidence has been lost. Most of the time, you might see him unsure about his actions and inadequate to please people. He is often shy and doesn’t like to socialize with people. Often, you will feel that they are like women who wish to deserve better.

  • Giving up is always the choice – Giving up could be a serious sign of a broken man. When things happen and he cannot resolve the problem, he will just give up easily rather than take away and solve a problem. This kind of cause could be incorporated into a sign of losing confidence.
