Authentic connections set my heart on fire.


My fundamental belief is that deep, compassionate connections make the world a richer place – openness and honesty, pain and love – 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
