A Mature Man integrates all parts of men, rather than forcing them into an idealized version of manhood that is isolating, exhausting and unfulfilling to try to live up to.
In this conversation we cover:
- The Old Macho vs. The New Macho and how these relate to the concept of “toxic masculinity”
- The foundational teachings many men did not learn from their parents that makes life harder and lonelier
- What frees men from having to pretend they’ve got it all figured out
- How to stay on track in mid-life, even with the grief and struggle we face through parenting, aging, etc.
- A way to understand extremist behaviors we see more of these days — shootings, abuse, etc.
