Coaches Corner: Reair: EP128 Manning Up and Breaking Free of Being a Rescuer with William

This call is about embracing your true self and moving away from the savior role. Today’s caller, William, thought he was looking for clarity about his career decision but it was more about learning to embrace his masculinity.

Many men struggle with what masculinity means to them. I have compassion for the masculine. Recently, the masculine has gotten a bad rap. We have seen a lot of the shadow of masculine but I don’t think we have seen the light of masculine. We want to heal it and bring more of the healthy light of the masculine forward. We all have both masculine and feminine energies inside of us. It’s all about balance.

A lot of men have an experience with a scary, forceful masculine and it makes them aware that they don’t want to be that, so they delve more into the feminine. These men might start to lose their purpose. I have talked with women who want a man who is not a pleaser or passive. Someone who matches their strength. The light of the masculine can be forceful without being aggressive.
