We live in a world today where it’s almost “taboo” to be masculine. But if we want to become effective men, we need to let go of our culture’s weird ideas about manhood.
The first step to becoming a better man is to ditch the ‘man-box’ and be open to new ideas.
Being a better man isn’t about impressing the streets or fulfilling society’s expectations. Men have been socialised into thinking that manhood is about power and control.
