Captain “Save A Bro”

It is amazing how so many women these days are saving men… These women are paying bills, giving NOT loaning money; allowing men to lay up in their house each and every day while they’re out hitting the pavement… No judgement for those of you who fit the above description, but many of you are attempting to save a man from drowning, yet you’re sinking yourselves… Just like women, there are times in which a man has or needs to be carried… Times when “life” happens, catches him off guard and leaves him exposed… Times when he will struggle to make ends meet… Does any of these make him less of a man? Or does all of these make him human??? Well, it all depends on the man and who is answering the question… Within us regardless to whether you are male or female, you will find a natural mode of “survival”… When life happens, “survival” happens… For some, they instantly shift gears from being the victim to being (Click HERE to read more)

Made Vs Makes

Some of you suffer from a disease I like to call “Always Made”… Throughout your life you’ve felt the pain of always being made to feel you’re not enough… Sadly to say and in no way am I speaking poorly of your parents or those who raised you, but many of them suffered from “Always Made” as well and without knowing it, they passed it on to you…. As a child you were always made to feel there is someone more prettier/goodlooking; skinnier; smarter; stronger and braver… You were always made to feel your thoughts and ideas were weak; ludicrous; not achievable… You were always made to feel your teeth weren’t straight enough; skin wasn’t light enough; hair wasn’t straight enough… Unfortunately, many of you are still to this day living these lies; passing the curse on to your children; feeling inadequate…
As an adult, you find yourself attracting people who continues to keep these feelings alive… You’ve previously dated someone who always made you feel there is someone else who will treat; screw; love them better… You’ve dated people who always made you feel nothing you did was right or good enough… Outside of dating you’ve worked jobs where your boss always made you feel insecure about your (Click HERE to read more)

I Grew Up…

I can remember when everything bothered me… When if people didn’t like me, I got bent out of shape… When if a relationship ended, I loss sleep… I can even remember when I tried to meet the expectations set by others and as soon as I felt I was there, they changed and set them even higher… Or how about when I questioned my manhood because I didn’t live up to the standards of what manhood should be… I can remember those days when the thoughts of others mattered more than my own… I was a complete wreck; constantly depressed; overweight and I even hated parts of me, but I grew the f..k up… I had to wake up and realize, I can only be me… I set the definition (Click HERE to read more0

Stick A Fork In It…

So over the past couple of years I’ve been accused of cutting people off without a reason… I’ve been called unforgiving; accused of not seeing the other persons point of view and to be honest, there is some truth to this… I have removed some from my life, but not without cause or multiple times of forgiving…
I’m an extremely loyal guy, it’s just my nature… I am the true definition of “through thick and thin”… I overlook many times, but there comes a point in which even I can’t turn and look the other way… You see life has taught me in order to love someone you must grant her/him permission to hurt you… You must tell your heart in the beginning, “Heart, they’re going to disappoint; fail; take advantage of you…”. It is required you open yourself to vulnerability as they are human, and no (Click HERE to read more)

Claustrophobic

So this past Saturday after working out, I went to take a shower and noticed the shower curtains were different… The previous curtains had a clear top which allowed you to see your surroundings, these were cloth from top to bottom… When I first began to shower, it felt kinda funny… I felt closed in; trapped; claustrophobic… I didn’t like the feeling of not seeing whether or not someone was standing outside of the shower stall… But as I continued to shower, I realized it wasn’t so much a feeling of being trapped, but the vulnerability of not being prepared if something should go down…
You see at home, my shower curtain has no clear top for me to see out of… There are three walls surrounding me and the curtain encloses me within just like the gym… The difference however is I know at home whether or not someone is in my home… I know there are no possible chances of danger… I know what (Click HERE to read more)

I Want One…

 

It’s amazing how we want something, but when we get it, we don’t appreciate it… I’m always blown away when I hear women say they want to be married… These same women have repeatedly been in failed relationships and to be quite honest, it hasn’t always been the guys fault as to why the relationship failed… These same women who want to desperately be married are the same women who let themselves go while in a relationship… The same women who places all their insecurities from previous relationships on their current relationship… The same women who look (Click HERE to read more)

Follow The Instructions…

So over the weekend I purchased a new TV as well as a Media Stand… I consider myself to be pretty intelligent as well as a handy guy… I can see the end result and figure out a method to put all of the pieces together in record time, but the Media Stand took me by surprise… When opening up the box there were so many different screws, bolts, wood pieces and corks… I laid everything out and came to the conclusion, I needed to follow the instructions on this one… I have to admit there were times I struggled… Times I wanted to take short cuts… Times in which I questioned why there were so many different pieces… Every time I questioned the process, I reminded myself of the end results…
Just like the Media Stand, there are many pieces to the plan for our lives… We want the end result and when laying out everything before us, we attempt to figure out a quicker route to get there… We want to take short cuts; not go (Click HERE to read more)
