  1. Wow! Wow! That took a lot of courage. Many men who wear your title may choose to not respect you anymore because you are questioning the system. You have just demonstrated a new level of freedom from people pleasing. That took a lot of “testing” and “examining” of the system that has been handed down to you. You are on the right track.
