At some point, as an adult, every excuse that you have that you think "holds you back" - such as how you were raised, your mother, your father, lack thereof, whatever - is just that - an excuse.
So, if men have indeed stop being men (which I dispute for the men I have mostly encountered in my life), then it is men themselves that are holding themselves back and down. Nobody else can do it. We are all responsible for ourselves, and can overcome many things if we perservere and don't look for excuses.
I agree completely but if you aren't taught those values or consider them false excuses are perfectly acceptable to you. Posted via Mobile Device
