There is one type of man much more despicable than all the others. A man so cowardly and dangerous that no one dares be in his proximity for more than a couple of minutes. A type of man so dishonorable and pitiful that he goes about alone, not because he so desires, but rather because everyone runs from him, not out of fear, but out of the deepest contempt. This is the man that is so weak that he cannot even carry his own weight. But his crime is not his inability to carry the heavy load of his own life, but his unwillingness to even try. He doesn't try to become stronger, he simply lies down and waits for a saviour. He expects everyone else to carry his share of the load, because he's entitled and weak. Don't be that kind of man.

As we've progressed towards a safer, more comfortable society, some people have unknowingly come to the conclusion that they can get by without trying to carry their own weight, because someone will always come to their aid. They are addicted to the feeling of power that comes from having at your disposal a "savior" in the form of the state, family members that can't avoid caring for them and a whole society that pours millions of dollars and tremendous amounts of effort into protecting the "less fortunate". Sure, many people have suffered tremendously, and many people deserve to be helped. But you know what I'm talking about. The people that actually need help are not usually those that desperately try to get sympathy and charity. There's no shame in needing help. But those people that don't even try to improve their circumstances because they unconsciously expect the empty motherhood of a perverted society to come to their aid and nurse them whenever they cry loudly enough deserve to feel the worst kinds of shame. There is no value in a man that doesn't try to carry his own weight. None.

Don't share your load
One of the cruelest things a man can do is transfer his burden to other people, especially when they are people he cares (or pretends to care) about. A man that is constantly whining and expecting others to come and save him is a coward. Because instead of owning up to the difficulties of his life, he expects others to drop whatever they are doing and carry his baggage, as well as their own. This is a man that makes life harder for everyone around him, because those that have sympathy will not be able to avoid helping someone "in need". But this person isn't truly in need, he just wants attention and he just wants other people to solve his problem for him. Coward.

Help your brothers
You shouldn't go around making everyone's life harder. You should go around trying to make it easier. For you are a man, and your back is strong, which means that you can take whatever burden their bodies can no longer carry and carry it on your fucking back. Carefully select whose load you will carry: choose to help those that struggle despite their efforts, not those who struggle because they do not even try. Offer your help to those brothers that are going trough rough patches, even if they won't do the same for you. The biggest man is the one that makes life easier for his loved ones, regardless of the sympathy he gets or doesn't get in return. Do it because it's right, not because you expect something in return. Men are beasts of burden, and life puts massive boulders on all of our shoulders. So grow stronger, be a man that other people can rely on, be a man that carries his own weight and helps others with their burden. Nobody wants to be around someone that doesn't even carry his own weight, because that someone is a liability, he is unreliable and will need protection if shit hits the fan. Don't be the weak man that needs somebody to nurse him and protect him like a mother does her baby. You are not a baby and nobody should have to protect you like one. Be a goddamn man and make your back stronger. For you will need to carry a gigantic amount of weight throughout your life, and if your back isn't strong (literally and figuratively) you will be crushed and killed by the burden that God will make you carry.
