How does a boy become a man? What shapes our personality, comfort zone, dreams and aspirations. What shapes our world views and how we perceive one another in our daily life? What makes us confident? What makes us insecure? What are the roots to these feelings?

Our childhood can have a lasting impact on our lives. It is important for a man to build a healthy relationship with his father when he is a child and it is important for him to feel accepted by his peers in his adolescence. But not all of us had satisfactory relationship with our father or peers. Some of us had missing fathers. Some of us had distant fathers. Many of us had broken families or have felt unpopular in school. How do we grow beyond our past and not let our imperfect past limit our personal growth? 

This meet-up group is an attempt for men to gather and share their past and ongoing experiences in their lives. We will seek to find shared experience and see how we can help ourselves and help one another experience personal growth. 

I want to share the video below that I found that shed some light about my own childhood. It might speak to you or it might not. But I think there is something to be learned by all. All of us have this inner child within us. He has a voice and plays an important role in what we seek in life. If we can make peace with our inner child, we can accept ourselves more,  have a better relationship with this world and be happier. Don’t be fooled by the title of this video. It’s more about the transformation of boys into men than about homosexuality per se. And it outlines the many stages of the making of a man that many of us are unaware of or have taken for granted. 

This group will not specifically discuss how to find a relationship or how to become wealthier or more successful.  This group is a place for you to open yourself up, 100%, authentically, vulnerably without being judged. This group is a place to you to provide support to other men as well. Being a good person is also about the capacity to listen and empathize. Whatever you hope to receive, you should be ready to give.
