Act like a man!
What does that even mean?
It means A LOT.
Especially since I have two daughters.
It definitely doesn’t mean what I thought it meant when I was making that mysterious transformation, into becoming a man. That’s certainly because most old fashioned attitudes teach our young men to stifle who they truly are and make life changing decisions for often absurd reasons and superficial rewards. That sounds like the opposite of manly to me.
I saw the poignant but powerful documentary from The Representation Project on goodmenproject.com. Hopefully it will aid young boys in their transformative years. To teach them what “Act Like A Man” should mean.
And especially what it NEEDS to mean..for all of us
