How tough are you?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic How tough are you? Toughness is one of the things by which boys or rather males are judged in the Western Society. The stereotypical Western male has almost no emotion, is actively participates in sports and dates several women.

While it is engrossed in our mindset that anyone who deviates from these standards is not a true male and sadly enough most of the women also judge men based upon this. It is one of the curses of modern society that is stereotyping. Stereotyping is the worst thing that had happened to humanity. It is downright insulting to be stereotyped. I hope that our future generations would learn from our mistake and sooner or later they would realize that it was all wrong. It is often seen that sensitive men are bashed in society and often told to get strong and grow up. It is often tough to handle these things for them.

There are many things which should be considered before calling out men like this. I know that many of the males are like this but the fact is that it is not their weakness it is their strength. They should not be trash talked like this. I think they deserve equal respect from society and it is high time that we should be respecting these types of people. It is seen that many of the sensitive people are great in art and we would be missing on a lot of great artworks if we don’t accept them for who they are. I am pretty much sure that there would be many such weaknesses in alpha males also. We are just not able to see it.I hope you liked my short article.

“Like many liberal men in the age of feminism, he believed women should have equal access to jobs and be given equal pay, but when it came to matters of home and heart he still believed caregiving was the female role. Like many men, he wanted a woman to be ‘just like his mama’ so that he did not have to do the work of growing up.”

“Emotional versatility is the art of making peace with the entire emotional spectrum by honing your capacity to channel various feelings along creative and constructive lines. It is not about controlling or condemning your feelings. It’s about conducting your feelings in a self-edifying way.”

“Buddha is our inherent nature—our buddha nature—and what that means is that if you’re going to grow up fully, the way that it happens is that you begin to connect with the intelligence that you already have. It’s not like some intelligence that’s going to be transplanted into you. If you’re going to be fully mature, you will no longer be imprisoned in the childhood feeling that you always need to protect yourself or shield yourself because things are too harsh. If you’re going to be a grown-up—which I would define as being completely at home in your world no matter how difficult the situation—it’s because you will allow something that’s already in you to be nurtured. You allow it to grow, you allow it to come out, instead of all the time shielding it and protecting it and keeping it buried. Someone once told me, “When you feel afraid, that’s ‘fearful buddha.’” That could be applied to whatever you feel. Maybe anger is your thing. You just go out of control and you see red, and the next thing you know you’re yelling or throwing something or hitting someone. At that time, begin to accept the fact that that’s “enraged buddha.” If you feel jealous, that’s “jealous buddha.” If you have indigestion, that’s “buddha with heartburn.” If you’re happy, “happy buddha”; if bored, “bored buddha.” In other words, anything that you can experience or think is worthy of compassion; anything you could think or feel is worthy of appreciation.”
