I grew up hearing many different things that were presented to me as ‘fact’.
The thing about growing up is that what we witness, by in large, is what we see as truth in the world until we somehow learn differently.
I thought professional wrestling was real for a good while until I had the dream shattered.
Many of these truths we take on and form part of our lens of the world, and in other ways often part of our identity.
One of those ideas and stories perpetuated around me, especially in my twenties was this doozie - “Men are afraid of commitment”.
That’s just truth, isn’t it?
Well, no. it’s not. But it’s the kind of little mistruth that infiltrates the minds of men and people who deal with and relate with men that almost give it permission to fulfil as a prophecy.
And so I, like many men before and after me, used this as a bit of a crutch to lean my lack of - and fear of - commitment onto.
Until I shattered it into the total and utter bollocks that it is.
Enter - this episode.
In this Episode: It’s true that commitment is a big deal for men. So much so that it harks back to our instinctual and evolutionary ancestry.
This and how it now plays out for us in terms of both consequences and opportunities is what I cover in today’s solo episode.
In this, I share a story about me sleeping on the couch one night after being delivered some s****y news by my wife - and I explain why I did that and how it links back to commitment.
And I share a story of having my heart broken so severely I out it away in a cosy sounding cage of “I’m just not looking for commitment right now”.
I give you examples and strategies to go away and put into practise in your life.
