"Two months ago I realized, that I have pretty much messed up my future. It took me five disasterous relationships with 5 great women that i love and respect until this day. I have realized, that there is something I have been doing very wrong. Since…"

I uploaded a couple photos from my phone with the intention of making one a profile pic. It seems that when I try to add a profile picture it wants to browse my computer for one. I'm sure I'm making this harder than it needs to be. I'm used to just clicking the "make this your profile pic" on Facebook. Also, can we "crop" a photo? Please help...that is, when you find the time. ps...really love the site, resources, etc. Keep doing, what your doing...it's appreciated!
I just wanted to thank you for everything you have been doing. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything you have done on the blog and your books. I appreciate that you have showed me that I really can become a "man" without turning on my values and being a pig. I do not have a male role model in my life, but the blog and community have guided me through many situations. Nice to know there are good people in the world still standing.
No, Thank you! I do public speaking engagements and am using "The Fighter" by S.E. Kiser tomorrow for one such engagement! Excited to use it and see how it goes over. I think it'll be great. I've finished the book and once I knock off a couple other books on my list, I'm going back to Manvotionals for a second go-around.
I've been following AoM for almost one year. I just wanted to congratulate with you and your wife for the good work you are doing. Your posts can help lots of men to find themselves and to re-define manliness.
In response to your comment from May of last year. (sorry, just getting back into commenting and building my profile up on here). I did my 2 years in Puebla (south of the D.F.) I was only there for 8 months until I broke my back while hiking and have spent the last 7 years learning to walk again. Crazy! But I up and going with just one cane now! I love how you served in TJ. I am from Temecula (north of Escondido) so I frequented TJ often throughout my adolescence!
"I would say stand out as much as you can but in a good way. The reason is that by standing out and doing an outstanding job you get promoted much quicker and that is bread and butter in the military. Get the job done the first time, get…"
"That is personal.
After gets your blood flowing and helps one settle down. Before is before you may tire yourself.
The other question is when to do home work. Early morning or at the end of the day.
It is a good…"
"I could do that if that was the workout I schedule. I actually just for now work out thrice a week and for 15 minutes. Being an Engineering major doesn't leave you a lot of time for things so I needed some way to sort of build myself backup. I…"
"You best do lots of research, try and find out why more vet's suicide then die in combat. Look up Kissingers quote on what he thinks of soldiers, it'll give you an idea of what your "leaders" think of you. Check out about the…"
