Good morning, men - Look at us! We're in here healing, walking, talking, processing like we should be. We all have that little boy/teenager/young man in us who was brave, strong, resourceful and clever. He still is. At my last session with my therapi

Thank you so much, guys. This has pushed me down an interesting road I’m not sure how to travel. This feels very strange. You mention keeping your inner boy close to you, experiencing the pain head on. TinCAn, you give me hope. Thank you. I

ZK - Putting this into words is a way of claiming power and perspective, that you have as a man, that you didn't have back then. Thanks for posting and sharing, esp on the hard days.

Yeah, I get that 'time warp' thing too - sorta like the old Star Trek when they would go into warp drive. Shoot through the universe and land somewhere - and realize you were moving along and no one else was.......then they're looking at you waiting
