Pravaran Mahat : Do you ever get tired of trying to be manly all the time?

Being manly is something a man has to own up to without being chauvinistic. A man has mixed traits of natural characteristics – those they learn and those they adopt from the surroundings. They get certain predefined roles and behaviours which they are expected to uphold by the society.

Keeping all these things in mind, yes it gets tiring, not actually in the situation of being a man, but in trying to live up to the roles associated with being manly.

The golden rule to survive a manly-panic attack is (especially for married couples) to share the roles and responsibilities with your better half. Don’t try to take on everything which will grow your ego and sideline the better side of your character.
