Being a Man: Whatever comes, face it on your feet

Fathers need to be strong and show the world that masculinity is not dead.

Every father needs to face his challenges head-on. Don’t hide from adversity, but face it! When men overcome a challenge, they learn valuable life lessons and harden like steel in a forge.

     A man should never back down from an obstacle or difficulty; he must confront these things with courage and tenacity, as opposed to hiding away out of fear or apathy–especially when the thing he is hiding from has been plaguing him for years.

It is when we charge into our fears that we grow. Most of the time, we realize that what we were so afraid of was nothing. Like Don Quixote, we create fake enemies.

Problems have a tendency to build up in our brain if they go unchecked. The buildup causes a great deal of anxiety, stress, and fear. It actually seems far more difficult to face our fears than actually is; the mind can be devious that way.

The best thing we can do for ourselves in this situation is confront them head-on. In doing so, we learn valuable life lessons about how to overcome problems or find new solutions faster when they arise again.

Like a bar of iron getting harder with each hammer we too use discomfort to strengthen ourselves.

Everything becomes easier once you’ve done it before–and there’s nothing quite as satisfying as feeling invincible after having faced something which seemed insurmountable just moments earlier!
