Thought of the day – the calling of a man

It’s time for men to reclaim manhood. Stop our childish ways, take personal responsibility for our actions and behaviours, stop blaming others (especially women) for our lot in life, and be a good role model for the boys around us. This is not a competition of the sexes but an improvement of self.

Be fair and play fair, and above all protect and provide for the vulnerable. That is the call of a man. This is the path to any and all of our adventures. Let go of your childish fervours, it is time to become a man.

That does not mean, that you cannot be kind, compassionate, silly and filled with laughter. For those are the ingredients of the best of humans. It means our priorities in life cannot be governed by that which stops us from realizing our potential or makes us forgo our responsibilities.
