Let life in.


When we authentically connect – with depth and honesty and pain and love – the world is a richer place. And there’s no better way to connect than storytelling.

‘The anaesthetic of manliness’ This time of separation and face masks is a hotbed for hidden emotion. It’s easier, now more than ever, for those who were raised to ‘bottle it’ to keep going on that way. The good news is, there’s a way out. The bad news (which very quickly turns into good news when you’re on the far side of it, you’ll have to trust me on this) is that you’re probably going to have to cry. Life is beautiful. If you don’t let it affect you, you’re not letting it in. If you’re not letting life in, what is it exactly that you’re doing? Manning up? That’s a hell of an expensive mask. #manly #manliness #manup #growapair #getbetter #buckup #stronger #nevercry #mansman #men #hardman #hardnut #bigman #bigballs #poetry #livelife #manliness #manlinessdose #artofmanliness #mensmentalhealth #mensmentalhealthawareness
