Being a Man Is About More Than Just One Thing
A man can lift weights and do yoga.
He can handle an axe and have crystals on his desk.
He can drink alcohol and party, and go on ayahuasca plant journies.
He can watch MMA and enjoy Broadway.
He can get off on closing big deals and have a blast crawling on the floor and playing with his kids.
He can build a deck for his home and cook delicious meals for his family.
He can laugh and play with his kids and hold them and cry.
He can wear pants, shorts, or even a dress.
His hands can get blistered and bloodied building things, and those same hands can get mystical as he spreads out his Tarot deck.
He can love a steak and also a vegan meal.
He can find himself attracted to women, the same sex... or both.
He can lose his temper and apologize and own when he is wrong or hurts someone.
He can dance, sing, and care about fashion and know every stat line from the big game.
He can love and laugh and cry and feel shame.
He can be a roughneck or wear makeup.
He can hustle, grind, be creative, and be loving and kind.
He can be a grounding force and also free-flowing and whimsical.
A man can be anything he wants to be because each man gets to define what it means to be a man, the man he chooses to be, and the experience of the life he chooses to live.
And a man doesn't have to be all these things; he can be the man he wants to be. That is freedom, power, authenticity, and deciding the man you want to be with all the options available.
Most men are playing a very, very small game while a world of options and opportunities are available to them.
