I was once fallen. It doesn’t matter why. What I live for now is why I got up. I live life with great absolute intentions. I don’t care what discomfort comes with my intent because I was living in pain and living in the past.
PAIN IS PAIN.
Pain doesn’t distinguish which pain you’d rather endure. That’s your choice. I made mine. The only difference is the outcome. I see so many men my age living a life of self-destruction filled with self-induced pain. Physically and emotionally.
The young men and the boys today see this and will soon follow. As men, we are responsible for laying down the foundation for our future men.
Representing a team, a brand, a politician, a preacher or a certain band doesn’t make you a man.
Howling at women and making sexual comments to each other doesn’t make you a man.
Drinking and smoking cigars doesn’t make you a man.
Working and paying your part of the bills doesn’t make you a man.
Hanging out with your bros or buddies doesn’t make you a man.
Treating your wife like a paid maid or prostitute doesn’t make you a man.
Letting women or society raise your children doesn’t make you a man.
Being an example of TRUE strength and integrity with absolute intent makes you a man.
I’ve concluded over the past couple of years…there are very few true men left.
At least very few I would consider “men”, or would strive to be like or take advice from.
The age of the Man Child is among us. It’s sad, because so many of you have just given up. It’s too painful for you to get up anymore.
