Be a Man!
As Father's Day approaches, I'm reminded the definition of manhood has changed over the decades, wandering further away from the distant, silent machismo to a more self-actualized, self-aware humanity. Beer, hot wings, and re-channeled self-loathing never said 'man' to me, nor did disengagement from family and the world around you, but the more I see and read, the more I think that's still how many men feel they must behave.
So, I really appreciated this article from Elephant Journal for hitting on the traits of manhood that I value and aspire to. Check it out and see if you agree as to whether these qualities help define a "real man".
