"Much good advice here. I know for myself, I finally realized that my parents were human and therefore flawed. They did the best they knew how to raise me. I had become an adult and realized any issues I had were now for me to work out. I'm not…"

"I echo Will here; in my experience with the Mankind Project I realized what I long suspected; the little boy I so tried to leave behind was still there. My visits to this left-behind part of me have been draining and almost traumatic, and I shudder…"

"Thanks for the comment, Will.  Sounds like you've described my inner child to a T!  Even though it is a 'child', it still has incredibly powerful abilities to influence my relationships, my attitudes, and my life."

Tyler Jacobs replied to Jesse Williams's discussion Abandoning the Hurt Boy and Becoming a Man
"I had a similar thought, Will but you phrased it much better. Never abandon a hurt child even if it's your inner child.  Care for him, help him heal, but don't let him control your life."

"We are influenced by so many things but our minds must rule the day. You have legitimate feelings, seem to have rooted out their source, and can see their effect. Of those three, you can not stop feeling, you can not change the past, so all that is…"

"Have you ever read Iron John? It looks at many of the same issues.  For a more practical take there's also "Hold on to your NUTS" which is more self help but isn't my favourite book."

Abandoning the Hurt Boy and Becoming a Man

First off Im new to the site and have taken so much from it, great stuff! Ive always considered myself a manly man, I whip all my coworkers in arm wrestling, play sport go to the gym, shot guns, rode my motorcycle through Mexico. And Ive had many rewarding and exciting relationships over the years that have been more fun and "hot" then deeply meaningful (Im 36). But I find when I get in to a relationship that progresses to the next level I have a hard time retaining my manliness. When it gets…See More

"Those were paraphrases of the dictionary definition of the term. The only way they're "kind of like" that nonsense is if you're reading them with the intent to misunderstand or dispute them. JB"

Jack Bauer replied to Mongoose's discussion Methinks "Manly" is a Misnomer?
""Manly" was what we were defining. But, it's a qualitative term, so you're not going to be able to define yourself past reasonable differences of opinion. That doesn't make the term undefinable, though. Even where opinions…"

"ITT: Men overthink it. Just fuck her. Hard. Fast. Sweaty. Don't wait till you get home. Don't talk. Just fuck. And by fuck I mean; put your penis in her vagina and slam vigorously and repeatedly until you're both dehydrated."

"But "masculine men" is what we are defining here and, secondarily, "well-adjusted.""

Jack Bauer replied to Mongoose's discussion Methinks "Manly" is a Misnomer?
"The textbook definition is possessing qualities traditionally associated with masculine men and/or actions befitting a well-adjusted adult male. Seems universal enough. JB"
