Nowadays on social media platforms many men are calling them MGTOW. MRA, Masculinist etc. have become passe’ for men. Till sometime ago even I did not know the meaning of MGTOW. Someone told me it is – Men Going Their Own Way.
Suddenly I realised, I have already become MGTOW, even though I don’t officially declare myself as an MGTOW.
From the definition of MGTOW it is clear that men who wants to be happy in their own way are calling themselves MGTOW (of course, without breaking the law and order of their country.)
Until sometime ago I was busy pleasing others around me. Always used to think about people around me and what they will think about MY behaviour. So I was very afraid when I was undergoing mental and physical cruelty in my marriage and always thought what others will THINK if I tell them about these. So I was pushed further into darkness of unhappiness and sorrow. That almost took me to the verge of committing suicide. Luckily enough I didn’t become one of those 64000 married men, thinking only about the society and people AROUND me who cared a damn about me.
I used to be always scared about my life and proving to others how GOOD I am, and almost always people cared a damn about that. No matter how good I was to them, I was always used by them and people around have always thrown their weight around making me depressed further. Moreover, I was fed by the popular media and was kept as an Idiot (as justice Katju commented recently that 90% Indians are idiots) for most of my life so far.
Suddenly I have decided NOT to please anyone around. I started retaliating for everything. I started caring a damn about others around me. I started giving a F**k to the society. It became either my way or highway, I stopped bothering that others around me was still gazing me, evaluating me, forming BAD opinion about me. I suddenly became the bad man, intentionally.
Now people around me respect me. They hear me out. They care for me. Even though some of them don’t, ….hahaha…I ask them to buzz off…I mind my business, you mind yours. Period. I am happy my way.
I realized I have already become MGTOW. Happy in my way..Duniya jai tel lene.
