Because sometimes I get super moving emails from you like I’ll share below.
But the majority of interaction I get is from you women of the TAL Family.
I guess we men tend to be less open with our emotions in general.
- We must be Heroic!
- We don’t have any problems!
- We have to be strong!
- We need to hold down the fort! Be the man of the house!
- If we show our weakness we’re not a good leader.
False. All of that
Vulnerability can bring deep happiness.
We all have weaknesses, and that’s OK.
Exposing the truth is healing. It is so healthy, and so valuable.
Men, it’s not just women who need to vent emotionally.
If you bottle your emotions inside it causes problems and pain eventually.
Best to let it flow…not uncontrolled of course…not unbridled insensitive anger. But an open heart, admitting your weaknesses, swallowing your pride and expressing the truth.
The other day when I sent the email about my weakness ‘how can I give what I don’t have’ it was really hard to click send.
It’s never easy to confront weakness.
Yeah, it’s hard. And we need to suck it up and be true men who confront our weaknesses, admit our faults, and don’t hide behind a mask of confidence and machoism.
And look what happens when we speak the truth from our heart (response to my ‘weakness’ email):
I want to thank you because the last Saturday my 10 years son asked me to go the park that is close to our house to play with him. When he asked me a Mexican league soccer game was going to start on TV, I thought on say no to his request because I wanted to watch the soccer game but I remembered what you wrote about the time when the kids become teenagers and then the time they wanted to play with Dad has gone.
We went to the park, my 8 years old daughter went with us also and we spent an excellent and funny time together.
Thanks a lot for help me to see the real important things on my life.
Have an amazing day.
Thank you Carlos.
Not only was Carlos blessed because I confronted and shared my truth, but I am blessed just as much by his actions and sharing…he inspires me.
And now you can benefit.
Look at the ripple effect of good truth has.
But what if none of us men speak up on the truth of our souls?
This is a call to everyone, but especially men, to stand up, confront the hard truth and express it out loud to those around you. Face your fear.
It’s a disservice to ourselves and others when we don’t let the truth flow.
The truth will set you free.
Make Today Amazing!
