There are certain truths that men need to accept in order to live more fulfilling and meaningful lives. Some truths may be difficult to acknowledge and challenge traditional masculinity, but knowing yourself and accepting truths is important for personal growth and well-being. Accepting truths, especially about yourself, can help people build stronger relationships, find greater happiness, and navigate the complexities of life with greater ease and self-confidence.
One Redditor said, “She’s paid to be nice and friendly.”
To which a second Redditor responded, “Never fall in love with your waitress, your stripper, or bartender!”
A user said, “You need to exercise!”
Another user responded by saying, “This is so important. Once I got to college, I wasn’t on any teams, and my exercising gradually disappeared. I’m now 41, and in the time between have struggled with a lot of mental health issues and general stress due to my job and life in general. Regular excise has helped me immensely!”
This Redditor said, “Nobody MUST love or care for you, so when you find someone who does, treat them well.”
Beating The Odds
A Redditor added, “If you’re single by the time your 30, you’ve statistically avoided your first divorce.”
A top-liked comment said, “You can be right and still lose the argument. Think about that hard; there’s more to it than what’s just said on the surface.’
This Redditor shared, “Nobody’s coming to rescue you, and nobody cares what you’re going through. It’s up to YOU to make a change.”
Have A Clue
A user shared this, “All too often, people who appear super confident and right about an answer or how something is done haven’t a clue. Sometimes knowingly, sometimes unknowingly.”
This user stated, “Some feelings don’t change with time. You don’t like your gf now. You probably won’t after marriage or a long time together.”
Doing The Work
A Redditor shared this truth, “You’re on your own. People will occasionally reach out, but no one will do the work for you. You have to work for it. Oftentimes, it’s hard.”
A user gave this advice, “Eat reasonably healthy and workout 3 times a week for at least half an hour. It keeps you in check mentally.”
This Redditor said, “It doesn’t matter if the circumstances are your fault. It’s up to you to change things. Sitting in victim mode is wasting your life. Become a survivor who perseveres.”
A user mentioned, “Do not confuse Fault and Responsibility. They are two totally different things. Things can not be your fault, but still, your responsibility and things can be your fault but not your responsibility.”
A Redditor said, “Life isn’t fair. It never was and never will be. It’s a hard truth to accept, but it’s just that, the truth.”
This user said, “If you do 1,000 good things, nobody cares. But if you make 1 mistake, nobody forgets.”
A Redditor gave this advice, “Nothing is as simple as you think. There is complexity and nuance in everything, and the closer you look, the more complexity and nuance you will find.”
Time & Effort
A top-liked comment said, “Things don’t work themselves out. You must spend time and effort on them, even if it’s a slow process. For example, many people think they will figure out their lives by age 30 but do nothing in their twenties.”
A Redditor had this to say, “Being responsible for yourself makes life easier. Some of the decisions you’ll make will be tough, but in the long run, you will be better off for it. When you take responsibility for yourself, you make fewer foolish decisions.”
One user shared, “Life isn’t a competition unless you make it that way. It’s a lot more exhausting to be trying to be “ahead” than just being content. This applies to all aspects of life. If we weren’t stepping on people’s toes to get “ahead,” we could all be happier in the end. That is just my middle age pessimist view, though.”
A user boldly proclaimed, “That we’re not as handsome as our moms led us to believe.”
Your Own Hero
Finally, a Redditor said, “There probably won’t be anyone for you to lean on in difficult times. You need to be prepared for the worst and learn to give without keeping any kind of expectations.”
Redditors gave some pretty honest truths that men need to accept. These truths probably will make things a little easier for men.
