I have a few snippets here and there of things I’ve thought about over the years, if anyone stumbles across them and likes them that’s great, but I’m not going to really push them out there. This is for those that attain the realization that reaching “adulthood” could be as confusing as being a teenager.
- Is not afraid to be honest when it is easier to lie.
- Is aware that what he has is less important than who he is.
- Knows honor cannot be lost, only given away.
- Believes virtue is lived, not spoken.
- Lives by the thought that integrity is what you do when no one is watching.
- Finds it better to apologize when not needed than not to when it is.
- Would rather live than hide.
- Knows that love, infatuation and sex are three different things.
- Is not a man just because his voice changes, that just means they’ve passed through physical adolescence.
- Knows why they should do something, not dwell on why they can’t.
- Knows she can take care of herself, but wants to do it anyway.
- Knows children are a blessing, not a hindrance.
- Would rather feel the pain for those he loves than cause it.
- Has to take risks, not always play it safe.
- Never confuses plans for actual accomplishment.
- Is never afraid to be honest with himself.
- Strives to make dreams reality, rather than tries to make a reality out of their dreams.
- Is conscious of the example they set for children.
- Always strives to improve himself.
- What makes a man is not measured in age, inches, clothes, hair, cars, or any of the vanities of life. What makes a man is the man.
- Can say I love you on the phone no matter who might hear him.
I made this from the male perspective, it would equally apply to ladies of course, but I am working from the point of view I know best.
