MAN up! Boys don't cry! Stop being a p***y! What, are you gay?
Have you ever heard these phrases hurled at you?
Have you ever felt like you didn't quite fit into society's masculine expectations and what it means to "be a man"?
These masculinity norms do more harm than you realize and hold you back from being your TRUE self and living YOUR best life.
Being manly isn't about fitting in with your culture's expectations, it's about standing out with your authenticity.
Being emotional, kind and empathetic isn't feminine, it's human.
It takes a ton more courage to stand up and say "this is me" than it does to just fall in line and be the man they said you SHOULD be.
Join us as we discuss these outdated and damaging expectations by expressing ourselves with honesty, courage and vulnerability.
We'll go behind the masks we all wear and show the world what being a man truly is.
If you're a man that's been holding yourself back from your truth and your greatness because they say it's not "manly", this podcast is for you.
