Barney Stinson from the television show “How I Met Your Mother”, personifies the type of man who will do anything to convince a woman to sleep with him. Yes the show is a comedy, but what example is being set for young men across our society? I have personally met or had friends who modeled Barney’s behavior and I was not impressed and did my best to distance myself from men who treat women this way.
The first rule of being a MAN, is to know who you are, what you want and to stand firm in your integrity. What you do and what you say should align as you lead by example. It’s not cute or cool to treat anyone like an object that you can use, abuse and kick to the curb. How would you feel if a woman treated you this way?
If you desire more from your life and want to attract women who respect you because you exude integrity, honesty, purpose, discipline and self-respect, then I invite you to sign up for one of my coaching programs and join the Humble Man Men’s group.
Pornography is just as bad or worse than a drug addiction considering our bodies are chemically addicted to the high or release.
I do not wish the addiction on anyone because it destroys self-worth, creates depression, and impotence, and creates an unattainable expectation of our romantic partners. The fact that it’s readily available in a few seconds on our phones, tablets, and laptops makes the challenge of breaking the addiction even more difficult.
If we pause and ask the question “Why is it free and so easily accessible?”, It becomes clear that it was intended to slowly destroy our men and society. I believe that sexuality should be more openly discussed with our children as early as considered to be healthy.
If it was up to me, I would eliminate its existence because it’s a low vibrational, destructive outlet that provides nothing positive or healthy for our world.
What has been your experience with pornography? Do you support the industry’s freedom to continue? What changes should be implemented?
This is the final photograph of Phillip Herron 34, crying in his car literally minutes before taking his own life.
He was a single Dad with three kids, struggling with crushing debt of over $20,000 and was desperately waiting for a Payday loan he’d applied for. But it was paid in arrears, with a 5 week wait time. That wait drove him even deeper into debt, and when he died he had $4.61 in his bank account and clearly couldn’t see any other way out.
Like a lot of people, especially men, he kept all of this to himself, nobody else knew how bad things were getting. This poor man even had to tell his children that Santa Claus wouldn’t come this year, and in his suicide note he wrote that they’d be better off if he wasn’t around any more.
And now he isn’t.
We need to talk more. We need to be kinder. And we need to be a country that helps each other when we need it the most.
