I went to a comedy show and came across the phrase, "Be a Man":
1. Make real decisions.
2. Put your relationships second. A man who values other people over his integrity. He becomes a wretch.
When people see that a man takes his values and ideals seriously, he will be respected.
3. Be willing to fail.
4. Be confident
5. Express love actively.
6. Re-channel sex energy.
7. Face your fears
8. Honor the masculinity of other men.
9. Accept responsibility for your relationships.
"Put your relationships second" especially struck me. I have been thinking too much of a "boyfriend" lately.
Now that I'm at it, I should read my "Steps to Academic Success" booklet.
