Every man has a boy inside of him. He is the part of us that is innocent, playful, and full of wonder. He is the part of us that loves to explore and learn. He is the part of us that is creative and imaginative. He is the part of us that is still connected to our inner child.
The boy in every man is often forgotten or suppressed as we grow older. We are told to be strong, stoic, and responsible. We are told to put away childish things and focus on our careers and families. So much for being an adult huh? Lol… But the boy in every man is still there, waiting to be rediscovered.
When we connect with the boy in us, we open ourselves up to a world of possibilities. We become more playful, more creative, and more open to new experiences. We also become more connected to our inner child, which can help us to heal from past hurts and traumas.

They help us to see the world with fresh eyes. You can take them out for a stroll through the park, or play fun games with them on the beach.

It can be challenging to let go of our “cherished” responsibilities – responsibilities bestowed on us mostly by society, kind courtesy adulthood lol – and allow ourselves to be playful and carefree. But it is worth it. When we connect with the boy in us, we open ourselves up to a world of joy, peace, creativity, and possibility.
