Being a man is the best thing I think. I have no regrets. Imagine, I can wake up 5 minutes to time and make it to a meeting feeling fresh and looking good. That’s insanely unbelievable. If I look rugged and unkempt, there is a category of people who will find it attractive. That is very manly they will say. What kind of world do we live in?
I do not have to live my life caring what people think or say about me. If I see no inclination as to how beneficial their remarks are to me, I will cast their words to the bin and move on with my life without fear or concern. That is their problem I mean. I love that bit so much.
I also like that we are instinctively territorial. You have to understand the dynamics of power play in any setting and use your intuition to thrive; whether you will form an alliance, make friends, yield or attack. You could get hurt for sure, and disappointed at times but one thing is certain, you cannot hate the game. Deep in a man’s soul is a high affinity for dominance.
I love that we provide a feeling of safety and protection to the women we love. The thought of this makes us very ambitious. We work hard night and day to take care of the people we love and to ensure they live a good life. Whenever we achieve that, that makes us very proud.
I also love the brotherhood we enjoy that is almost an unspoken rule. In the face of dispute, a brother you have never met will come through for you, with little or no expectations in return. It is ridiculous sometimes, if a girl raises an issue, a brother will almost always defend a brother unless of course, you are threatening the girl’s safety, in which case, he will knock you out.
Let’s keep the brotherhood burning. Until we speak again, I am your host Mitchell Odhiambo. Welcome to a man’s world. To get a female perspective on why my colleague Mercy loves being a woman, please click HERE
