I come across many men who are afraid of, hide, or push down their anger. Many grew up around men who used anger in violent, destructive, and harmful ways, so they learned to see it as a "bad" emotion.
Some grew up around men who avoided anger and never saw healthy expressions of it. No emotions are wrong or bad, and many emotions, when handled without healthy expression, intention, or responsibility, can damage or hurt others.
When you limit your ability to be angry, you tamper with and dilute the fire that burns inside you. An aspect of a healthy, strong man isn't to avoid anger but to create a state where you can utilize controlled rage. Your anger is a powerful, healthy expression of boundaries and emotions, especially when it isn't destructive.
I like to think about anger like this: a fire can destroy and burn down everything, but a fire can also warm the home and help us prepare nutrients to eat. A man's anger is like fire, and it's all about how it's used and expressed.

This is a no-brainer, super low commitment way for any growth-minded men to dip their toe in (for just $50/month). Seriously, join us or get your partners, friends, brothers, fathers, etc. in here!!
For an hour every week (but with the expectation of joining at least 2 calls per month), men from all over the world who want to become better partners, fathers, leaders, or just better versions of themselves, connect in a safe space to share and unload their stresses, burdens, and challenges, without judgment or advice.
Alex and his business partner Bob share mini-lessons on empowering topics like mindset and healthy masculinity, and then hold space, celebrate honest sharing, and help the men to set intentions in their lives.
Additionally, all members get access to a private online community to share wins, give and get support and advice and build new relationships with other men.
