I learned I was not alone with my fears and idiosyncrasies. I learned if I was open and willing and able to ask for help – there are men out there who will be there for me. I believe my relationship with my daughter is constantly improving because of the work I continue to do. I believe I am a role model for her even with my imperfections – and that sharing who I am, with humility, gives her the freedom to do the same. I learned that being in and with my manhood I can still be a safe person to be around. Unlike my previous beliefs, my stepping into my full mature manhood is something the world needs and welcomes.
