Aight, it's Friday night. I got off from the phone after 4 hours of catching up with friends and family. I would've hit up a bar with roommates and what not, but I am here pondering about things after a few drinks. (thanks COVID-19)
I've been pondering about many things - this girl I had an amazing chemistry with but never hit on (and how much I regret that), an abusive senior I never stood up to in high school as a freshman, times I acted like a jerk to family/friends/gfs, and really all the "unmanly" ways I acted in the past. I'm sure great many of us experienced something similar.
As a 20-something year old, I feel like I'm at an inflection point- going from a young adult to a "Real man". Now I guess everyone has different opinions and I have my own (unfortunately I don't think some people ever become a "Real man"): Being able to act on any opportunity he finds important (career, love, family & friends, ...), fortitude, resilience, and some kind of decorum of his own, ability to make ends meet and provide for his family in some way (if he has one), etc...
I've been wondering what your versions of a "Real man" are and when you think you became one (Or how far along you think you are if you aren't there yet). Man, I gotta find a real male role model.
