Nowadays on social media platforms, many men are calling them MGTOW. MRA, Masculinist etc. have become passe’ for men. Till some time ago even I did not know the meaning of MGTOW. Someone told me it is – Men Going Their Own Way.
Suddenly I realized, 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 want to be happy in their own way are calling themselves MGTOW (of course, without breaking the law and order of their country.)
Until some time 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 about what others will THINK if I tell them about these. So I was pushed further into the 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 society. It became either my way or highway, I stopped bothering that others around me were still gazing me, evaluating me, forming a 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 about my way.
I realized I have already become MGTOW. Happy in my way..Duniya jail tel lene.
I made a joint and wrote on it fuck u bitch
My way 🙂
I have reached a point in my life where I feel it is no longer necessary to try and impress anyone.
If they like me then great, If not, then that’s their loss.
Sometimes people in your life will try to expose what’s wrong with you because they can’t handle what’s right with you!
Good Article, may be you add one more point
no. of MGTOW is directly proportional to more anti-male laws
To all of the people along the way who hurt me, lied to me, betrayed me and broke my heart.
You forced me to see the change I needed in my life and gave me the determination, motivation and a belief that I needed to change.
You gave me more than you could ever take from me so,
Kudos on your decision to go your own way. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your new-found freedom. Considering the anti-male scenario in India (and other parts of the world), going your own way is the only peaceful and sensible option. Men everywhere are wisening up and boycotting the rotten system that treats them as criminals simply for being male.
As the ancient Chinese wise guy Confucius once remarked, “Give women the men they deserve: NONE.” Go marry yourselves, ladies!
so wait, you grew up and stopped being a teenager, and felt the need to right a blog post about it? wonderful.
