Another BRILLIANT post from Constance Hall. She never fails to amaze us with her wise words.
Totally nailed it with her latest post, “An open letter to my darling sons,
Gentle and soft and kind are some of the manliest things you will ever be.
Before judging a women’s body remember the one that you came out of, the body that brought amazing little you into this world. That body is half of you, unrealistic expectations will only make you unhappy.
Stay close to the ocean.
One day your best friend will fall in love. Don’t be a dickhead about it, readjust, get a dog, learn to cook. Encouraging adultery or benders or lies is inevitably encouraging unhappiness.
When I was young they taught their boys to never hit women. As a girl I grew up knowing that if a boy hit me it was wrong.
We know better now, we know that all violence is wrong.
You see strangely enough teaching boys to not hit girls didn’t work, when we raise violet men they will eventually take to anyone, girls, men, puppies, even themselves.
Don’t be violent, it isn’t tolerated anymore, not towards women and not towards men.
Think twice before you shag. A certain level of respect must be shared between 2 people who shag. Would you buy her breaky in the morning? And will you answer her calls? If the answer is no, go home and have a wank.
Tell your mates you love them, hug them, get drunk with them, support them, tell them your fears and let them comfort you.
Stay off Tinder, getting rejected and accepted in the flesh teaches you how to love. Unless your mature or divorced, then fuck it go on Tinder, have a bit of fun.
When you have a baby your going to do so many annoying things. Tell wifey I’ll be there for her, even when she can’t stand the look of you I’ll still be there. And don’t take 4 hours to shit, women can push out babies quicker then that.
Be the good guy, he might finish last but the secret is that true contentment is the prize reserved for last place.
Check your substance abuse, if it’s costing you more then money it’s classified as a problem. Talk about it.
Don’t you ever forget who’s son you are, when I’m angry, when I’m sad, when I’m old and even when I’m dead, I am your mum and I wholeheartedly love even your most unlovable qualities.
And… If you move away… I will follow you.”
As a mum of boys I could not love this post any more. I love every single word!
