"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

Mongoose replied to Mongoose's discussion Muscle-Enhancing Shirt in the group Exercise
"I think I may have to agree. I have one shirt which does have tightness around my bicep (short sleeved) which looks fair, and I do find myself wanting to wear it more often."

Wild Man replied to Mongoose's discussion Muscle-Enhancing Shirt in the group Exercise
"I actually like the round next myself, but what I think is more important is how the shirt fits on the arms. A tighter shirt around the shoulders and arms is what I look for and it is more important in accenting the upper body"
