Johnstown Relationships- Men of Courage!
This article is paying homage to the patriarchs of families. I recently wrote about the tremendous matriarchs of my own family, and now I repay the men of my family. Hopefully you have similar men to look at for courage and strength.
Men are typically known for their physical strength and `fix-it qualities’. While I greatly admire my own father and grandfather for teaching me those qualities, I also admire the men in my family for their tremendous courage and heart. I admit I have gained some of my greatest qualities from both of these men.
While personality characteristics differ from my grandfather and father, they both have shown fantastic inner strength and courage during their lifetime. My grandfather had great patience and spoke with a soft voice, but was still able to share with me how to be a strong person and very giving to family and friends. My grandfather helped me in many ways from education to driving. While my father has taught me how to handle pressure, fix almost anything, and show confidence in yourself.
Both men have been my greatest male role models in life. I owe them both a world of gratitude. While they might be very different, they have been able to show me kindness, compassion and how to stand up for myself. I believe these qualities among others make-up courage.
Courage in relationships is an important aspect. Courage is required when dealing with life’s most difficult problems. Courage is needed to power through no matter what takes place. Courage is necessary when standing up for yourself, beliefs, and rights. Courage is also a wonderful characteristic when teaching the next generation how to react when enduring challenges.
I have witnessed the men in my own family overcome some horrific challenges with great courage. They have shown me that with courage comes pride in what you do in life. Men in my family have taught me ways of helping my own clients reach their fullest potential and how to have long-lasting relationships.
Both men have been committed family men and dedicated to everyone they love. Both have a never-say-die attitude, and have been able to share that attitude with me. This is true courage!! I truly hope that my readers have similar male role models to give them a sense of what courage means and how to benefit from that courage.
Sharing what you have learned from your family members is a talent not shown by some. Be thankful for the men in your life that have given you such a gift of their own courage. Share that gift with people around you. Giving back to family and friends shows you have learned the true message of courage.
Remember to love those around you! Do not take them for granted because they can be your best teachers. As always, give the people you love a hug and tell them you appreciate everything they do! That is also showing courage.
