If you’re on the fence about whether to subscribe and start reaching out to others on the main site, at least one likely reason is that you haven’t thought much about what kind of value the relationship would have for your life.
To help you get started, I want to show you a few paragraphs from “How to Be a Man.” What the author says about relationships is excellent, and it applies to bromance, too.
A man chooses his friends, lovers, and associates consciously. He actively seeks out the company of people who inspire and challenge him, and he willingly sheds those who hold him back.
A man doesn’t blame others for his relationship problems. When a relationship is no longer compatible with his heart-centered path, he initiates the break-up and departs without blame or guilt.
A man holds himself accountable for the relationships he allows into his life. He holds others accountable for their behavior, but he holds himself accountable for his decision to tolerate such behavior.
A man teaches others how to treat him by the relationships he’s willing to allow into his life. A man refuses to fill his life with negative or destructive relationships; he knows that’s a form of self-abuse.
That’s pretty much it, dudes: your life gets better when you hang out with guys who inspire and challenge you. So go make it happen!
