Happy International Men’s Day my friends, and thanks for being an influential part of our life. Taking a moment from our busy schedules, here is a polite effort to thank each and every man out there who has been supporting, nourishing and making our lives fuller.
No matter how much subjective it might be in the present times, we all have to accept that ‘Manhood’ is changing. We are developing ourselves for a better and brighter tomorrow, and we are making it possible with the help of tolerance and education. The gender equality will remain a potent issue, and I am sure that the situation will become better with each passing day. Coming back to the modern man, here is a call for celebrations. Our men, be it a brother, father or life partner, are changing for good. No longer are they the ‘old-grumpy-orthodox’ heads who wish to rule the reigns of dominance. The change is beautiful! Let’s unravel some of the most amazing characteristics of modern day man.
- He is helpful:
Unlike the past, where men were the single bread earner, today the financial burden is shared by both the partners. In lieu to this, the modern man has grown more helpful in the terms of domestic chores, childrearing, cooking, and appreciating.
- He is not skeptical of Change:
The acceptance of change in life is the most amazing characteristic of a modern man. The change that a person accepts in the mindset, beliefs, and idea is absolutely beautiful. The modern man is not stubborn or conceited with the meanness of ‘self’.
- He is sensibly traditional:
It is good to stay connected with your roots! The traditional construction of mind is important for the faith that binds the soul. However, having an obnoxious- orthodox approach in the disguise of some traditions is totally uncalled in today’s time. It is just a weird reason to ignore the elements of change and development in life!
- He knows the true meaning of masculinity:
Masculinity, more than sex or body-type, is a mind impression! Masculinity is constructive- it is supportive of anything that is weak or in need of help. Masculinity is an attitude that a person hold to empower his surroundings. It could be anything that just a gender or body-type!
- He is emotionally weak:
He is emotionally weak because his strength ‘the woman of his life’ is always next to him. The modern man is not in the gab of any drama or fake show. If he is emotional or weak for a situation, he is ready to accept it with all grace and charm.
- He is passionate:
Be it for love, work or dreams, the modern man is driven by the fuel of passion. He is no longer ready to waste his time in a job or person that he hates. The passion for career and love is a solid indicator of a man’s life.
- He is futuristic:
From companionship to parenthood, the modern man has a complete sense of clarity in mind. He is ready to submit his mind in the wake of his desire, understanding that there is no harm in listening to the heart. At the same time, his vision is calculative and ration. Now this is the kind of balance that a modern man has in his life!
