MEN. WE LOVE COMPETITION, ADMIRE COURAGE AND TACKLE PROJECTS. IT’S WHAT WE DO!
But we also need connection – accountability, stability and vulnerability with someone else or in a group. We tend to do this more effectively ‘side by side’ than ‘face to face’; that is, we don’t usually forge our deepest friendships over earl grey tea or melting moments. Our most important friendships are initiated in the heat of battle, in the midst of struggle or in any other adrenaline-rich environment. It’s here we learn to trust others.
