Wild Geese and poetry

I don’t know what it means to be a man. Maybe that’s a good thing. I’d prefer to learn what it means to be a person. In the past I’ve noticed a lot of confusing messages and societal pressures to be and do specific not necessarily healthy or personally affirming and attuned things. When I see pictures of men beside women they appear overdressed, almost like they are repressed, uncomfortable in their bodies and I feel sad. I’d be heart warmed to see men embrace their bodies as everyone else is. Yet, maybe I have to start with myself and figure out what such a thing would look like for me. Embracing and understanding sexuality and how unique and special it can be.

And nice Mary Oliver reference :)

You'll figure it out, boo. Your observations are on point and your feelings matter. As per your last two sentences, embracing your own uniqueness will lead to confidence that will inspire others.
