Instead of cancelling the drinks plan, I went ahead to meet that stranger. I wanted to tape off that negative emotion. I wanted my presence and existence to be acknowledged. I wanted to feel like I mean something to someone.

I know that this might sound so hard and maybe even impossible for you to do but instead of carrying that baggage everywhere you go, why don’t you unload it?

I know that after this article gets posted, I’m probably going to officially lose my status as “Dude” for violating some aspect of the “Bro Code” I was honestly not aware of. I’ll say this much: I know where I stand with my “girl friends” today, know where I stood with them 10 years ago, and know where I’ll stand with them in 20 years.

Whenever you’re feeling low, you come to me. You vent, you release. You feel better. You come out stronger, more confident and ready to take on the world. And then you ditch me.
