The Question of the week
So now we have made it to the final pillar of a Relaxed Male. That pillar is the man’s community.
There is the saying that no man is an island. This has a few different meanings yet as a whole it is to mean that a man cant simply “do it all” by himself. Look at how men who are left in solitary confinement act. The act of being without people have a mental impact on them.
We as men have to have a community. Some are small while others are huge. Some people attract others into their community while other people have a very select group of people around them.
So what is a community?
Your community is all the people outside of yourself. These are the people you interact with. Yeah, you may be like my wife who hates going to Walmart. While I enjoy it because I can some times get the glimpse of the elusive Walmartian. Yet there are people who are in my community that I want to get to know and then there are people who I don’t care to get to know and this is all apart of my community. I have friends who I will share intimate details with and I live life with them. Then there are people who I don’t. There are people who come into my life for a set reason and a set amount of time and then they fade out. Much like your town.
It is your family
The people you work with
The people who go to your church or social meet up.
Why is your community important?
Because without your community you don’t grow. You stay stagnate and never improve. The people that you love will test your bonds at the time. While others are there to be lead by you.
