EPISODE 412: Men with Meaning & Purpose

What do you call a man who cannot perform, provide, and protect? Many people would call him a loser. It’s true that men have it easier in some areas with greater access to income and opportunities, but that often comes with the price tag of loneliness, isolation, and mental illness.

The stereotypical successful man is often work-torn with heavy eyes, floundering health, and little or no personal life to speak of. This is no way to live. On this week’s podcast, we’ll explore the struggle of men, meaning, and purpose.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How loneliness and isolation typify the modern male experience
  • Why men are often expected to perform and provide at the expense of almost everything else
  • The downside privilege: how many successful men have no real friends
