Greetings Barbarian! Long days and pleasant nights!
Men are often regarded as direct and simple creatures. We men thrive in simplicity, we try to keep it simple as much as we could and try to focus. We never multitask, we compartmentalize.
With that said, I would like to ask a very simple question. Has there ever been a time where you have to choose between your truest calling and your family? I would love to hear all about it in the comment section.
Being a solo father, there are moments where I have to choose between being a parent and my truest calling. To be honest, there are a lot of moments that I’ve used being a parent as an excuse. I’ve been wanting to go back to the gym but I still haven’t. I figured that the money I spend on myself is of much better use for my daughter. While yes, that made a lot of sense yet, I could just make more money or stop wasting money, right?
Before we proceed, I’d like to thank you again for another wonderful month of writing. I know times are tough but still, some of you have time to read my post. I appreciate it, thank you!
In turn, I will strive to give entertaining and informative content as much as I can. I can’t help in saving the world but I will do my best to lift some spirits.

Sometimes, a man has to choose between his family and what he feels his true purpose is. Given that one of a man’s roles in life is to provide, a man will oftentimes feel torn between his purpose and his family. It suffices to say that men are “selfless”.
Yet, what if I tell you that this “selflessness” is often the bane of most men? What if I tell you that this kind of “selflessness” often robs your family more than providing for them?
In some of my posts, you’d often hear me say that a man must stay loyal to his purpose. Otherwise, it would leave a gaping hole in his heart that no woman or vice could ever fill. A man’s purpose fills him with an otherworldly sense of happiness and only then a man could give his fullest gifts. He will not be distracted with his what-ifs and can fully devote his time and attention to his family.
A man must never allow himself to use his family as an excuse to fulfill his truest heart’s desire. Don’t make the same mistake that I made by skipping the gym because of parenting. It’s not my daughter but the lack of money that prevents me from going to the gym. You are robbing your family of your most precious gifts.
Your family wants you to be happy, even my seven-year-old daughter has notions that she wants me to be happy. If you deprive yourself of happiness then it’s not you that you are depriving but rather your family. If by an off chance that it is your own family that deprives you of your happiness then it’s time to re-evaluate your life.
At the end of the day, we men always wanted everyone to be happy. With that said, don’t allow others happiness to cost you your own. Stay loyal to your purpose at all costs.
For courage, freedom, and happiness!
