Convictions - RAMMFIT

Convictions - RAMMFIT

Society has watered down masculinity so bad that men are afraid to be men. It takes courage to stand by your convictions even if it means standing alone. It takes courage to stand up and speak out, especially against an injustice because most people stick their head in the sand, they don't want to be a target. Remember, when you are attacked, it means you are worthy of being a target. Only a strong man is capable of living up to that.

When you speak up you make yourself a target and only the strong have the courage to stand up and speak out. Most people in society would rather be dead than wrong, which is why most people stay quiet. They don't want to put themselves out there, just in case. They might ruffle feathers, upset the apple cart and make the narrow minded uncomfortable. They might attract attention and in my experience, the loudest ones in the room are usually the most compliant when it comes to being bullied, manipulated and coerced. I am not saying this is the case with everyone. It's a general rule through years of observation. As I always say, I only preach and speak from experience because I have lived it. I don't hold a degree in psychology and I'm not an expert on human behavior. I just trust what I see and experience with my own eyes.

The one thing I know to be true about people who don't have the courage to stand by their convictions is, they lack integrity. Therefore, they would have no trouble deserting you or throwing you under a bus when shit hits the fan. People who lack integrity have a tendency to be disloyal and treacherous. For that reason, they cannot be trusted and I wouldn't expect loyalty from those types of people.

Standing by your convictions is not easy, but I believe it is a huge part of what makes a man a man in today's society. If you are easily fooled, manipulated and coerced, it means you lack strength and depth of character, you don't know who you are or where you're going. If you simply go with the majority it means you lack courage and mental toughness. If you're not programming your own mind and living life through other people's expectations, it means you are either unhappy or you will be very shortly because you lack the courage to be yourself. You are who they want you to be, you're not who you really are or who you want to be.

You're living a lie and that is not good for anyone's mental health.
