Aviero:That I am handsome?

yuzedo:Funny, but so true. A very fair view of a mans life, is of sacrifice - of his vigour, labour and, even his well-being in caring for his wife and children. And for most men – especially the “ordinary Joe”, that is the reality.
It’s why I can’t stand ignorant, entitled women painting men as brutes, and spouting off about discrimination and supposed ill-treatment. Few women, if any, would want too, or be capable of swapping places with ole’ Joe. God bless him.
Good piece. And all the very best in your labour of love - may it not go unrewarded or unappreciated

As I went through the post, I thought of the last time I say a heart felt "Thank You" to my dad or even bought something special for him at of the blues and couldn't remember.
Even this Christmas, I have already bought some pair of shoes and bag for my mum, but didn't even buy any thing for him. I will always dismiss the thought with "what will you buy for someone that have everything, he can take care of himself".
Having thought it through, I will do something extraordinary for my dad, this Christmas to say thank you.
And then pray that my children will not always think that "he'll take care of himself".

What more can I say? I guess part of being a man is knowing your efforts would mostly like go unappreciated but you can't and shouldn't abandon ship.
|Re: . by Aviero: 2:33pm On Dec 17, 2015|
Earlier this year, I had a face off with my pops about how I really don't "care" about him. He was all about how I only get to talk with him when I am in need of something. He didn't hide his feelings. What He said wasn't completely true tho, but this piece explains everything.
While not attempting to take anything away from the special
Mothers will always win.

. I believe I am ready, by God’s grace, simply because I like to think that (true) love is sacrifice, and I’m already very much in love with my unborn kids…….

Roles of fathers are truly always unappreciated
Can't remember the last time I called or bought my dad anything

Really apt, I can recall every wrong I 'felt' dad had done to me growing up as little as counting within the range of ten occurance, I nvr forgot. Buh mum has a record longer than a book can keep buh I not only forgive almost immediately I forget as well. Guess will jus learn to try balancing

Got my dad a gift today for the first time and I don't understand why I felt so overwhelmed with joy... Can't wait to give it to him tonight.
Someone should sing "sweet father" already

Yuzedo, very nice piece and true.
Sometimes when I talk to him, I can almost swear I hear the emotional neglect in his voice or maybe that's just my conscience nagging me.
But love on all sides has never been stronger.

If I ask for a summarized version, it's not because I'm too lazy to read. Summarized version please.

Well, when I become a father someday, the successes of my kids is enough payback for me.
All that emotional sentiments seem rather feminine to me.
Men are men.

I don't under appreciate my father.
But I appreciate each one according to their efforts.
Anyway human beings are emotional beings. Male and female. And hence tend to care more about those who bond emotionally with them.
Dear fathers, pls take the time to have that emotional connection with your kids and you'll see your problems of being neglected in old age gradually disappear.

Well when the children are growing up most daddies have no emotional connection to them. They are only care about providing money which is very important but means little to youngsters. Most men spend less time with their family and their only discussion is about school in a scolding manner. Men who spend their spare time with their children do get remembered. I remember a late uncle that spent quality time with us while we're growing up,he know me more than my dad and I do get him gifts even as a student.

That's nice of you. By the way, let me know the best means to reach you privately.
|Re: . by Nobody: 9:43pm On Dec 17, 2015|
Despite his many flaws, my father has my eternal love and respect. If he's not the world's best dad, I'm sure he did his best for me. That's enough.
|Re: . by flyca: 1:51am On Dec 18, 2015|

The challenge is that fathers are never emotional. I know they feel our pains but just try to be men by not expressing it while the emotions shown by our moms got us attached to them.
More so, the fact that they act like they don't care gave us the wrong impression of how much they yearn to comnect to us at all levels of life.
|Re: . by DocAdray(f): 10:23am On Dec 18, 2015|
Two days ago, my dad requested that I buy him something 'little' and nice when coming back from work, with MY own money (I still collect money from him sometimes ).
I weakly protested but later got him a very nice wine.
The old man was sooo excited that he kept intimidating his wife with the wine. Well, I was really glad that I got him something...
Fathers appreciates our gifts and attention too!

Men hardly show emotions most times because that's what we do. The aim is to make people understand what it means to be a man, not turn men into women just to "get some love". The person who first confronts danger and has to be clinical in most decisions is not likely to be gushing emotions upandan. Feminising men is a major reason why gays are on the increase; forcing men to emphsize their feminine side is just... meh.
Let men be men.
|Re: . by GboyegaD(m): 5:46pm On Dec 18, 2015|
Showing emotions has got nothing to do with sex as we are human. Emotions does not require you break down rather some kind of empathy and concerns in situations.

Men do not show emotions the way women do, moreover, both sexes tend to process and react to situations in different ways. A popular example is the reaction of a man to a woman having a problem; while the man's natural reaction is to solve the problem, a woman is more likely to provide a shoulder to cry on. Does that mean the man lacks empathy or concern? In fact, as a man, who would you say proved empathy and concern for the woman in trouble.
