A sense higher than myself.
After becoming a father to my baby girl, I learned quickly that my body is not just mine. I owe it to her, her mother and everyone whom depends on me to be in the best shape I can be.
To live as long as I possibly can.
I am the first image she will see in the world when she thinks of the words; man or father. A pedestal written in stone.
My health. Mental. Physical. Spiritual. …
We seek to become strong to forget what happened.
Push past the feelings that don’t belong, we miss back when.
The pain was vivid and an area irritated.
Propagated, unhealed. Shit was self created.
No way to brush off, dust off, the pain and anger.
Instead you’ll be worst off, closed off to how it drains and dampers.
Seeing is believing. Hiding is deceiving.
To tell yourself to just ‘get over it’ is no other word than misleading.
No more than concealing.
Breath. Exhale. I promise your life will not end.
Facing your demons, for a simpler life? I surely recommend.
It’s ok to cry however it’s not ok to lie.
The only person you hurt is yourself and you in turn deny.
Closure. An ending. Credits. You’re spending.
Useless energy. Places and contexts that will never be…
The true power.
To become numb.
To not care.
To be affected but to go on.
To be freed.
When applied with progress and acts that require effort and struggle? To desensitise yourself from….yourself. Your ego. Your words. Your excuses.
Just do the damn work.
Like this, retweet this.
The last 10+ years has been us indulging in our own delusions.
This has to be said.
Not everyone who disagrees with you is your enemy.
Not everyone who agrees with you is your friend.
Just because someone likes something you create doesn’t mean they fully endorse everything you are selling.
Echo chambers are poisonous if they are your only source of validation and air.
Welcome people who challenge you.
You can buy a product without buying the entire store.
Just because someone agrees with you in one aspect does not mean they advocate and stand with you in everything that you do. Vice versa too.
Society has always been polarising but with the rise of online and the power to touch various parts of the world, echo chambers, virtue signalling and agenda pushing this has to be said.
You don’t have to stand for everything someone does because you like what they say.
How can you know better if you do not know better?
It all starts with looking forward and asking…
Why is this way?
Why has it always been this way?
Why is this being said?
What more could someone say about this?
If this is true, what is to come?
You endeavour to find out the origin. When you find the underlying belief it is easy to see the flow and it is on you to accept that reality or not.
This era where men are being attacked for the misgivings of men from past, learned behaviour and traits intrenched in society.
This era of veiled misandry.
This era when little boys are conditioned and targeted.
This era of truly evil brothers leading men astray with fake manhood and principles that they themselves do not abide by.
What does it mean to be a man to me in this world with no figures to follow and held accountable for everything any man is doing at any point in time?
It is invisible.
A false standard I realised…
