Fellas: our emotional condition sets the tone. Therefore, we must learn to disagree without being disagreeable.
You ever realize how many problems or conflicts are exacerbated based simply on how we respond to them?
You don’t HAVE to respond with anger or unkind words. Remember, you’re in control of what you think, feel, believe, do and say.
Our young men are being raised with faulty concepts of what respect is, how to give it and how to earn it. This aligns closely with faulty concepts of maleness, manhood and masculinity.
Being more aggressive doesn’t make you more masculine. I don’t take any shit off anyone, but you’d never know. Why? Because I’ve learned to hold my posture and keep the main thing the main thing. What people do and say is about them. I enforce my boundaries and keep life pushing.
Have you been called “mean?” You don’t have to think you are. However, you should pay attention to this if you’re finding it a trend.
Your yes can be yes, and your no can be no, without needing to be intimidating or an a*hole.
Examination of how you respond to stimuli can result in increased trust, communication and intimacy.
You don’t have to bully mfs in your own circumference. You’ll turn your circle into a cage.
Do you want to be right, or do you want to win?
