I've had a rethought of my "I'm in the know" post. Sure it is all true, you might believe in it, and change your ways because you believe it. But I see the bigger picture now. Its all about being mature and really understanding what it means to be a man. In today's society, after you're 18 or 21 or whatever, you are a man in a physical sense, but the way our culture is set up, there's no formal initiation where you psychologically leave the boy behind, and fully take on what we are innately programmed to do. If you're a guy, and when you got to 21, or 25, did you ever wonder "I know I am a man but when can I start referencing myself as 'a man of...' or 'a man who...' and not feel funny saying it?" Mature women can determine at the drop of a hat the level of a guy's maturity. And without shame I will admit I hadn't matured at all a year ago. And in the last year, I deeply wanted to be mature, and understood the characteristics of a man, but I was approaching it from a top down approach by trying to act like a man (and feeling conflicted), rather than working from the bottom up by letting the boy die, understanding what it really means to be a man, and let my new psychology guide my actions from then on.

Not 100% there yet because I have goals for myself but I'm getting this taken care of. And it'll be done soon.
