The modern man lacks a strong father figure. A father who was present and able to demonstrate what being a man is all about.
Rather than being shown strength of character, loving presence, and what living a focused life of mission rooted in deep wisdom and perspective actually is, we’re shown the opposite (or at least, a very fragmented version). This is not to point the finger, but to illuminate the facts.
The result: while we may have attended university or trade school, maybe holding down some form of a job and have a somewhat decent group of mates (or maybe, understandably, nothing of the sort) – deeper questions scratch at the back of our minds.
What the hell am I doing in my life? What is my purpose? Why do I feel so anxious? What should I aim for.. I have 1 million options, but I still can’t decide…. How do I deal with the problems that I know I have, but don’t know where or how to begin…
Rather than trying to answer those questions, we turn to short term distractions. Netflix. Porn. Video Games. Wanking. Clubbing with the boys. Hinge/Tinder. Tiktok, Facebook and Instagram doom scrolling…
Sound familiar? You’re not alone.
Ask yourself right now..
What is the cost of living that way?
If you’ve made it this far, some part of you feels that cost. Maybe some part of you doesn’t want to acknowledge it… we get it.. being comfortable is much easier.. But it’s there… and you know it.
Forged is the answer you’ve been secretly hoping for.
