What is Normal any way?
(This also goes towards women who also get it... you know who you are)
- For me, it is a father of two.. almost three that knows I cant control anyone but myself that keeps me at peace about politics or vaccines and can listen to others opinions without throwing a fit... fair?
However, raising a son I don't want to lose and even learn myself how to be a better man, leader, protector and provider every day. I believe generationally we have always had roles and those are in grained in our blood. Nothing we can really do about it.
For example, I was told once I stay up late while everyone is asleep because my ancestors use to have the men stay up and tend the fire for the tribe and protect the tribe from predators. Also, I was told people who are scared of offending people, rely on people and have always relied on others to take care of them. They are more community driven and a better ecosystem (I think personally) to thrive in abundance... However, I am unfortunately not that person and I love my alone time dealing with my own problems. Also, Fight or Flight response? That is generational to actually fight a threat or know when to run as fast as you can.
