This is another one of my life-defining books.
I now understand that the sex roles hurt men as much as and sometimes even more than they hurt women.
ABOUT HOW ALL MY PHILOSOPHIES TIE TOGETHER…
I say I’m “freer” than many people because I often live outside of everyone’s expectations for me. I create my own plan for myself which is based on what is real and what is important to me. I don’t waste any of my energy on materialism. I’ve trashed the sex role junk. I believe in the sacredness of relationships but not the institution of marriage. Everything is connected – responses to family of origin problems, relationship with money, decisions about the types of relationships to seek and nurture, relationship with “things”, purpose, how much to challenge oneself, defining what is “fun” or “pleasurable” etc, etc. It can seem like these are unrelated but I don’t think they are.
Everything comes together when it’s based on integrity and purpose.
