Living in a Community of Men

Community is something that everyone needs. God created us to be social creatures. If you think about the rule of threes, You can survive three minutes without breathable air (unconsciousness) generally with protection, or in icy water; you can survive three hours in a harsh environment (extreme heat or cold), without shelter; you can survive three days without drinkable water; you can survive three weeks without food; and finally, you can survive three years without social interaction before going absolutely insane.


That last rule of three is what I want to focus on the most. Three years without social interaction means not being around anybody, period. That, however, is just the average take, and most likely the average person wouldn’t be able to survive much more than a year or two at most. We are social creatures, so we need a community of people to interact with.


The Men’s Community

 I joined Hard as Nails in the year 2020, and I was dragged into the men’s community. I grew up in a family of mostly boys, so this was a super easy transition for me. Nope! I was totally wrong about that. My siblings are spaced out by about two years but all the guys in the men’s community are all around the same age. So that means that it's literally a bunch of little kids in big people bodies.


It’s such a joy to be around all of these guys, because of the moral support and just the brotherly love that is shown through and through in the community. Whenever you are struggling, one of your brothers is there to help you through it. Even if the struggle is with one of the guys, there is this openness that they are always willing to hear you out and try to solve the problem. The men in the community are always there for you whenever you need to have a bro talk or just talk about some pointless but hilarious topic.

I’ve got your back if you’ve got mine

 Quite possibly the best part about the men’s community is that for us guys, we don’t need to feel awkward or feel obliged to protect each other at all times. Like when it comes to a guy and a girl, we as men naturally will want to protect the girl, right?

Well, when it comes to guys being with guys, there is a mutual agreement that we know that we got each other’s backs. That is something that is beautiful and quite possibly one of the things that is lost in our culture.

When I think of the men’s community, all I can think of is the movie, Band of Brothers. That's what it’s about when you are in a men’s community, you are a brotherhood. You are there for each other when the going gets tough, to push each other to greatness. When I see my fellow brother struggling, I can help him through it, but I can also help him to become stronger.

 My conclusion about the men’s community

 If we truly wish to say we are manly, we should be able to look danger in the eye and not fear. We should be able to take responsibility for our faults and for the work we have to do. We should be able to protect those that cannot protect themselves. We should be able to love others, even if they wronged us. We should be able to control our anger. We should be able to live a chaste life. We should be able to live a prayerful life. And finally, we should be able to be there for our brothers when they need us.

 A men’s community is something that should be always present in the world. We need to keep each other accountable as men, we need to keep pushing each other to greatness. And the best way to help each other achieve what God wants him to do is to have a community of men for which he can call upon when he is in the greatest of needs.
