“A harmless man is not a good man. A good man is a very dangerous man who has that under voluntary control.” -Jordan Peterson

If I’m not strong enough to do what needs to be done to protect and provide for my family, then I’m not a good man.  Physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually.

I think this is something that is hard for me, because I am quiet, reserved, and peaceful by nature.  I don’t stick up for myself, or for my rights, naturally.  But now I find myself at the head of a family, and my personality has to give way to my responsibility.  Part of my becoming a better man, then, is to develop that strength, and use it wisely.  Again, it’s not for myself.

“Toxic Masculinity” is a complete misnomer.  Masculinity is not toxic.  Selfishness is toxic. A lack of discipline is toxic.  A lack of a backbone is especially toxic.  True masculinity is exactly what this world needs.

I think this is something that is hard for me, because I am quiet, reserved, and peaceful by nature.  Part of my becoming a better man, then, is to develop that strength, and use it wisely.  Again, it’s not for myself.

I want to be a better, stronger, more dangerous man, and I’m doing my best to get there.
