It is all about survival
surviving today is just as difficult as it was hundreds of years ago. Today we are fighting different battles however just as dangerous.
We fight advertising day in and day out, we fight the desire to eat sugary foods, we fight debt, we fight traffic, we are fighting to survive.
We need shelter, food, an occupation.Same as it always has been.

It took me almost 10 years of our marriage, maybe longer before I 1. was open to....2, the fact that I would hear my beloved mother saying I was stupid when my wife woudl correct me on some fact or when she would give me constructive criticism.3, had an understanding that my mom did not mean to make me feel that way and was doing the best she could, 4 once I understood that I got to choose if I wanted to still let it affect me of cut that yarn and start a new role with a healthier reaction to my wife when she spoke to me.
Many nice, hardworking folks are missing Being an adult male human being living on planet earth in 2018 I can safely say our lives with all of our technology at the root of it all are not so different than those living hundreds of years ago. It still remains, man and woman, our children , our relationships, and carrying on our line into the future. Preparing the children to survive life when we are gone.
Yet today so many nice, hardworking, good natured folks are not living healthy, empowered , lives with healthy intimacy and a relatively relaxed home in which to raise the children in.
