How does a boy become a man? Is manhood really measured through strength alone? This is one of the most common misconceptions in male psychology. Being a man is not all about power. It is actually about how you can control your emotions or strength and become responsible beings, by being a protector. Take this for example. If you hit a woman, will it make you a better person in the end? Does a relationship build on fear healthy and ideal? Of course not. Love entails communication and understanding. And, if you want a relationship filled with love, be a responsible man and build a relationship wherein a man and a woman has equal standing. You may not know it now, but this is the key to a long-lasting bond.
