The Mask of Masculinity: How Men Can Embrace Vulnerability, Create Strong Relationships, and Live Their Fullest Lives
I used to watch/listen to Lewis Howes’s podcasts and l was always amazed how he was fully interested to learn from the people he invited. I was also impressed by his story and the inner force he had to overcome his childhood issues.
His book was on my reading list since I heard about it but the moment I signed up for Audible, I bought it. That book was my training buddy because my indoor bike arrived when I got the audiobook. I do not remember how many kilometers we did together but I am sure I cried a few times, once even on the floor. Man, that sounds really dramatic but he was speaking about Robin Williams, I was tired from the bike and emotionally exhausted from trauma work.
The book is really nicely written, understandable, and very useful for women too. I believe some masks can be also found in women, we can also wear some masks, even if we do not face the same pressures.
I loved that I could find men I know in every chapter and I had an opportunity to try to understand them and maybe forgive their mistakes. I am really grateful for the advice he had for women.
Another thing that the book helped me see, was that I was lucky enough to find a man on his own internal search and healing. He helped me a lot on my way to recovery and that shows that healed people heal people.
I would recommend this book to anyone, I really appreciate the way the writer tries to make the message understood by everyone. Some books can be really intimidating because they use specific language but this book was a friendly one.
I hope you can also have the chance to read it and understand more about the men in your life.
