When it comes to being a man, there’s usually one attribute which people think of and this attribute is none other than something we like to call, strength. That’s just it. Everybody expects a man to be strong. You know what the worst part is? Well, everybody expects a man to be strong physically. This isn’t always the case guys.
We’re Not Talking About Muscles
Men aren’t measured by how physically strong they are, men should be measured by how emotionally and intellectually strong they are. Not every buy is into physical fitness, let’s face it. Some guys prefer other things. But this does not definitely make them less of a person, no. This in fact makes them unique.
The moment they embrace their masculinity in their own way, they become better than those who seek masculinity through their physical appearance. You know what really makes a man strong? His confidence. That is the biggest strength anyone can have. Okay, not everybody was born equal, some people are better at some things while others have a hard time on those specific things.
Each Man Excel Differently
Some people excel in other places while others excel in the good old-fashioned things. This has nothing to do with confidence is built when you are not comparing yourself to other people. Other people can be good at whatever they want but you? You should focus on what you want and not how society expects you to perform. The thing about society is that everybody speaks within a certain norm.
A huge chunk of society just wants to be better than other people. A lot of them are capable, yes, but not a lot of them are strong. A lot of them haven’t even fully accepted who they are both through their strengths and weaknesses. The hardest part of being confident is admitting you made mistakes.
Struggling on in the Face of Challenges
Once you’ve made mistakes, it’s time to man up and face them. Nobody is perfect and nobody has it on their side every time. Some people have worse but that’s not the point. People go through ups and downs in their life and the only way to face it is with confidence.
You don’t need to be the best at everything, you just need to accept who you are and be the best at being you. The physical aspect of strength should only be a source of fitness and not a measurement of masculinity. Although it’s great to look good, looking good isn’t the most important thing in the world. The most important thing in the world is to be happy with who you are.
