Talking to this young friend.. I realize now that I need to step things up. I need to man the hell up. I need to adapt. I say this jokingly, I feel less of a man than this little girl. I’m going to shoot my own pride and admit how things are. That’s it. What more can I say other than I need to man up?
I don’t exactly know how to “man” up, though… I don’t want to cease what I love doing, and that’s being me. I wouldn’t say I’m changing myself just to not feel this way, but rather I need to broaden my horizons and embrace these things around me.
