I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about sharing personal information about myself. With social media’s encouragement and being influenced by my mom and sister, being vulnerable by being honest with everyone around me telling friends and family everything that I’m thinking landed me in a very unique position because I wasn’t discerning with whom and what I shared. It turns out that you can’t make many friends when you vomit on them – TMI.

Renee Brown’s TED talk on being vulnerable was viewed several million times and her research of pushing men to speak up and share what they are thinking has, I’m sure helped many situations, but what’s important for us men to share?

My brother introduced me to Rollo Tomassi and his research on how Men and Women are different. He discusses that Women are attracted to a man that has their stuff under control. If there is a problem that the wife/girlfriend, can help solve then discuss it, if not, and you start complaining about your day don’t expect the same result as when you are dominating your field of work and come home exuberant. Of course, there are difficult days and things you need to process. Basically, if you start complaining about your day, the Em doesn’t find that attractive, and though they can sympathize, it’s not a good look. There is a difference between complaining and proposing your problems with solutions or needs.

That said, What needs to be expressed, vs what do we need to take care of as men?

What does it look like for us to have a safe place to vent and process what we are thinking?

Do we need that and does F3 give you that space?

That’s a wrap.
