I have recommended this Tony Porter: A Call To Men TED Talk before in comments to other bloggers, but I haven’t ever posted it here on my blog. Blue Eyes was referred to this talk by one of his therapists. He has recommended it to others because it so resonates with him. He associates himself with the man box passed down to him from his father. He wants to break free of this box forever and everything it represents. I know he always did want to be free of it, way before dday, but it takes honesty and courage to do the right thing. Sometimes honesty and courage have been beaten out of you.
Whether it is a man box, or a woman box, or any kind of box, if it holds you back from being good and kind and honest and true and happy, break free. Break free.
