I may step on some toes, but here goes…
1) How to be loyal to your friends
A real man is loyal to his own friends. That’s a given.
It sounds pretty basic, but many people actually forget how to be loyal as time, work, distance and commitments make for drifting apart as they let all of these become excuses to start treating each other less-than-great.
So always remember where you guys came from. There’s a reason why you all were once close.
2) How to apologize
Real strength doesn’t only come from facing those you fear, but also those you’ve wronged.
It is the mark of manliness to actually be able to humble yourself, recognize that you’re wrong and make amends.
Plus, when you don’t attempt to apologize? You only end up making excuses and come across as an insecure jerk. And nobody likes that.
3) How to be on time
Speaking of waiting, a real man, or actually, anybody with any kind of self-respect for that matter should know how to be on time.
It’s sad that somehow today, it’s accepted to be late.
I don’t care whether it’s an accepted habit among your friends. This is a common-sense practice that shows you respect the other party and time itself.
If you don’t respect any of those, you don’t respect yourself either. So don’t be ever be late. Only little boys are late all the time.
4) How to relax and have fun
Nobody likes an uptight person. That’s a given.
But for a guy, if you can’t relax, it means you constantly worry and stress out over every little thing. When a guy does that, it directly affects those around him.
Note: This is how a lot of bosses, supervisors and managers are considered bad and treat their employees badly.
A real man knows how to relax, that means to say he is able to accept the fact that things can go wrong. And he is prepared to take it on.
5) Deal with it
Feeling pain? Things not going your way? Having a bit of the cold? Tired?
Deal with it.
No more complaining, whining or wishing someone would pick you up.
You aren’t a little boy anymore.
Pray about it and deal. With. It.
