When a Boy Becomes a Man


There are many women and men in this world who have not established their role in society as adults. While the young boy may physically be maturing into a young man, until he takes responsibility for his actions, he is still a boy. Men don't run from their problems. A man faces what he has done. Although some males may feel that they are young men, truth is they are still boys. They will no doubt never become men. The saying is” Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.” Just because you have matured physically into adulthood, it doesn't make you an adult. What separates the boy from the man - responsibility.

I agree. I didn't truly feel that I was a man until I was almost 30. It's about taking responsibility for your actions and not blaming your sophomoric antics on "just being a man."

By the way, you have great resources for writers on your blogs. I'll be visiting often. Thanks!

I couldn't agree more my friend no matter how much you have matured physically, you aren't a man until you take responsibility for your own actions.
