Finding Your Courage In Everyday Life | Real Life Superman

The things that hurt, instruct
Benjamin Franklin

Bad ass virtues represent those virtues we as men need to embrace, forge into our lives, honor, and replicate in younger men as well as sharpen each other with. These are the virtues that require the crucible for refining the dross, purifying strength, courage, confidence, resilience, and depth of character. This is what makes them bad ass because they will break us and reshape us on the anvil. They will never be easy to conquer but conquer we must. We must awaken these lost masculine virtues in each one of us and become them allowing them to define us. They give definition to our masculinity a frame, a reference, a routine, a map of true manhood north unleashing our masculine power.

Love Is Not Enough



Choosing to love will require something from you. Laying down your life for the good of another or laying down your power is the picture. “We are either sacrificing love for power or power for love” Rhodes. It is a verb calling us to act. Its putting another in front of you. Love is rooted in sacrifice and sacrifice means you make a decision to die to your desires and wants for that of another. Love is always giving and meeting the needs of another regardless of if you like them. It’s easy to love those who you like and return the love. It’s hard to love those you don’t like or respect or at odds with or have hurt you. Love is accepting someone regardless. Its giving dignity and value regardless. All healthy relationships are built on love, honor, and respect not on rules or holding someone hostage based on authority or position. The opposite of love is to judge, condemn, reject, belittle, devalue, refuse kindness, hate, cancel, be selfish, unforgiving, and abandonment. It’s extremely ugly and hateful and sadly it has given definition to being male. You have to ask yourself what’s more important, to win the argument or protect the relationship. Love will never fail us, it brings out, kindness, peace, understanding, goodness, gentleness, self-control and forgiveness. Love should be an identifying quality that we as men dispense, not arrogance, anger, selfishness, or self-righteousness. To love will be one of the hardest things you will ever do, that’s why it is seldom seen. Men who demonstrate this BAD ASS VIRTUE, are revered and followed.
