The Paradigm of Emotional Intelligence in Modern Masculinity

The contemporary woman – a profoundly interconnected, intellectual, and superior entity – seeks a companion who mirrors her emotional depth and self-awareness. She is unlikely to accommodate a man persistently detached from his feelings and self-understanding. It is crucial to note that her ideal partner isn’t just an outwardly expressive, emotionally open individual; instead, he displays intelligent emotional articulation, constituting a pivotal element of a healthy, modern man.

Possessing command over one’s emotions equates to having mastery over life itself. This emotional control extends to a comprehensive understanding of personal weaknesses, exemplifying genuine power, as opposed to conforming to the concept of a ‘new-age man.’ Authentic leadership materializes from openness and self-awareness, as opposed to wallowing in self-pity.

An emotionally intelligent man stands out by maintaining control over his feelings, demonstrating clarity, decision-making capabilities, and shouldering responsibility for his actions. He establishes trust and security through a consistent portrayal of conspicuous self-awareness. His emotional expression is neither leaky nor overwhelming; instead, he embodies stability and confidence in his identity.

It requires substantial bravery to admit past mistakes and acknowledge actions that may have caused others pain. Such courage and self-awareness enable one to comprehend internal emotions, take responsibility for them, and share the experience in a relatable, safe manner with a partner.

This emotional communication signifies caring, interest in a partner’s needs, and more importantly, a man ready to accept his shortcomings and enhance his life. Emotions play a significant role, but it’s not solely about them. It’s about self-regulation, self-understanding, and the ability to endure a spectrum of human experiences. These capabilities reflect resilience, robustness, assurance, and dedication.

Such traits are undeniably attractive, demonstrating well-rounded wisdom and the capacity to navigate complex situations. Adopting a victimized, passive stance, and blaming your feelings or disagreements on others narrows your perspective. You unwittingly play the victim, relinquishing responsibility for your internal experiences.

Your emotional reactions serve as mirrors, reflecting your hidden fears, wounds, and dysfunctions. Neglecting these indicators, projecting, and shaming others only steep you in ignorance, extreme selfishness, and unpredictability, resulting in a volatile character. We’ve all been that man at some point; a person driven by fear and concealed beneath a façade of bravado. However, this doesn’t need to define you.

Emotional intelligence is not only appealing but also essential for our collective evolution. After all, men too possess a limbic system, crucial for emotional processing. Your emotionally intelligent contribution is needed by the world, gentlemen.

One is glad to be of service.

A Story Of Longevity & Respect

We become so fucking excited when we move in to a relationship. Our hormones go wild, any form of intelligence gets thrown out with the trash. We become primal, we go deep in to our physiology.

Of course there are times when there is a ‘soul recognition’, a ‘past-life’ connection and then it becomes more spiritual. As this phenomenological experience is rising, for many this form of deepened awareness in intimate relationship eludes us.

Understanding Trauma

Trauma is not simple. We can’t compare one’s trauma to another’s. “I wasn’t sexually abused or tortured, therefore I shouldn’t be distressed”. One’s trauma is not “worse” than someone else’s. And it’s difficult as we place a hierarchy on certain experiences. We must break away from comparing and observe our own experiences.

Desire Is NOT Toxic – Another Spin On Wanting

Wanting and desire get a bad rep – let’s flip this notion…
We think if we desire for life we are unhealthy, selfish and disconnected. We are ‘bad’ people if we desire. It is not that we are desiring, it is HOW we desire that sets the tone for our movement and existence in this life.

The Power Of Belief In Relationship

If you don’t believe in yourself or your beloved, you will never grow and be in consistent friction within your own mindscape and your dynamic with each other.

Making Peace With Our Destiny

When we make peace with the parts of our lives that challenge our will and reality, we soften in to the power that is life. We often attach ourselves to the idea of what we are ‘meant to be’, who we are meant to be, what we are meant to be, how we are meant to feel and why we are here…
