Mentality is a chosen way of thinking. The ability to learn and create foundational beliefs, where from these, you choose a more helpful and mindful approach to self, relationships and living.
In today’s society, many men are restricted in their ability to communicate what it is they are feeling, thinking due to cultural and generational influences. Due to experiencing, trauma, abuse, substance abuse, being un-educated and unhelpful behaviours/communication, in relationships, from role models and in social peer groups, Men learn a mindset where it limits their ability to open up, talk and share how they are really going. How often have you heard the phrase ‘your weak’ or felt like you have to do things all on your own, that you cant ask for help??
This unhelpful mindset has unfortunately, created behaviours where we want to escape from feeling the void inside. To not feel this, we begin to behave in a way, where we begin to crave the opposite of how we are thinking or feeling towards ourselves. Some examples of these behaviours are where we begin to seek the approval from those in our lives, through our actions, we distract ourselves by striving for success to feel valuable, seeking attention to feel acceptance, disconnecting from others, fearing our own vulnerability because it means we are weak and we are falling a part!! Other beliefs might be Fear of being a failure, fear of rejection and fearing we are not enough! Unfortunately these mentality’s have evolved and continue to effect the way men choose to think, behave and live out our lives.
