Let's Talk Bruh

May 20, 2020

Writing and journaling can be a very healing, therapeutic, and self-reflective process, but sometimes it's hard just staring at 2 blank pieces of paper in your notebook. We'll get you started with Howard University English professor Kyr Mack in this masculinity and manhood journaling discussion + workshop.


This week's show is a journaling workshop and throughout the episode we talk about the power of writing down our thoughts and processing our feelings through the exercise of journaling. What's the story you tell yourself about your life? Through journaling we're able to reflect on the past, meditate on the current, and create the future. 


We discuss the following prompts:

  • What are three major emotions that you’re carrying right now?
  • What’s one thought that has been getting the best of you lately? How has it been influencing your behavior?
  • What are some of the earliest messages you can recall receiving about masculinity? Who were/are some of the key influences in your understanding of masculinity?
  • How did these messages impact you? Do you still believe in these messages? Why or why not?
  • What are you grateful for at this moment?
  • What do you love most about yourself?


So get your pen and pad out, your phone's note app or use a word document and join us in today's workshop.
