Being A Man


1) Finding the courage to fight through days that don't give a shit about you.

2) Doing the responsible thing, even when it reduces expected pleasure.

3) Finding peace and solace in moments when the world supplies them.

4) Knowing how to compromise your ideal of a perfect world with the world that is, and how to manage the expectations of others so that everyone comprehends what was agreed on, and who will take part in which responsibilities.

5) Being able to back down when challenged.

6) Seeking consistent healthy friends.

7) Building flexibility into your conception of your day.

8) Failing at something and continuing on.  And on.

9) Knowing how to look at death without allowing it to level everything of meaning to meaninglessness.
