Raising your hand at a woman is just as abusive as hitting her.
Being humble doesn’t mean you don’t know your self worth, it actually means the opposite.
In modern society, what is it that really determines whether someone has crossed from boyhood into manhood?
Alot of males wearing bodies of men, but retaining the mind and ways of young boys.
Traditionally, there are a few events in life that modern society has deemed as way points on the road to manhood.
These way points are graduating and getting a job, another is getting married, buying your first house and having a child.
@CC_Stokely is it just financial status or the new things your capable of doing because of finances. IE; providing
@Artemis_J but adulthood is not the same as this notion of manhood.
I think a lot of males still don’t feel like men because there was no celebration, no welcoming of them into manhood.
So they wait, hold off on certain thing(marriage,etc) until they feel like they are ready, feel like they are men and not still a teen.
The Mono indians used to stake their thirteen year old boys on ant mounds for initiation into manhood .
During this time the entire history of the tribe was recited to them.
This was so important to the tribe because there was no written record, the boy simply had to remember. If he didn’t give up, he was a man.
Men that are confident in their abilities need not tally their successes, thump their own chests, and make sure everybody hears about it.
I hate the term “Real men”.
Friends should hold friends accountable, but many of us fall short on that task.
Most friends don’t hold their friends accountable for cheating, preoccupied with asking for details.
Don’t put people first who are satisfied with putting you last.
If the Bible was made into a movie it would be rated R.
