I was raised by a single mum and as such, I’m a man but I don’t feel like one. You could say I never learnt “how” to be a man. I constantly feel like I’m not respected in my interactions with people. I used to be very angry about this and my place in the world but I seem to have accepted it as of late. I live just once and if I’m a weird womanly man right now, so be it.
