and men in this world carry the burden of decision-making. In relationships, men are seldom given the benefit of the doubt. Loyal men are given a small nod for adhering to what they believe is right, but never praise from other men for being loyal, because men don’t publicly salute each other for doing the right thing. Instead, we remain inwardly respectful, and the moral barometer is assumed to be self-orienting. Men are silent about their beliefs unless challenged, and being faithful to your long-term, long-distance girlfriend is something that you gain nothing, ever, from defending to others. So, if you’re a man who can’t remember when he decided to become so disciplined yet knows it’s simply a part of who he is now and forever, I salute you.
