Being a guy means you’re always competing to see who’s better than who. It means you have to be number one.
It means you compete at saying who’s the fastest runner or who’s the best at football or basketball. You’re looking good for the girls or playing tough to be the dominant one. You gotta stay strong and be the best you can be and not get broken inside: if you do, don’t let it show.
When you’re a guy, you are taking on more responsibilities and more actions to keep you, friends, and family in line. It means you can’t be afraid of something you know you are.
Up until stuff goes wrong: you lose your friends or a relationship goes bad or family passes away, then you don’t know what to do. You stay so strong for so long and think you can’t be broken until you are. Once you are, its the end of the world. It seems like it, at least.
I believe personally that being a guy or boy means to just stay strong, even in hard times
