I cannot respect nor trust a man who does not have an identifiable ethos or moral code by which he lives, by which he adheres. To lack in moral compass and fiber is no way for a man to go through life. There should be a certain pride in the consistency, stability, and predictability of one’s nature and actions across all situations. A man should have a foundational backbone from which he bases his decisions, interactions, and general behavior in life. And he should take ownership of this process… whether he is good or bad, right or wrong… He should own it. Not shy away from it, not hide in the “grey areas” of life.
Man up. Adhere to a code and live by it.
