What is A real alpha to me?

“The fullest expression of manhood is ultimately living the embodiment of the responsibility to something in life that is more elevated and bigger than myself.” -Tadayoshi Inoue

To be a real “alpha” has a very nuanced meaning to me. It is being responsible for someone and something that is bigger and more important than just myself. It is taking a higher road for the sake of others without ignoring myself. It is to honor myself first so that I can be the fullest and healthiest version of myself for others. It is being a mentor and a leader to others but to also live the example that I teach.

It means I must stand for something of value. I must do my best to offer kindness when ever and where ever I can. Kindness which is my strength of frame that allows me to give shelter to those who might not be able to shelter themselves. I must have a compassionate heart that is steadfast without betraying myself so that I can offer something of greater value to those that can not give to themselves consistently. 

And of course a protector, an alpha is the rock of goodness that others may lean against when they feel their own frailty. He provides the ever present example that gives hope and inspiration to those who may not have been initially given all that they may have needed to walk the walk of life. He is the symbol of a saving and loving hand that is always extended with love. He is the father, the mother, the brother, the sister and the friend that completes the circle of connection that we all need in order to feel the wholeness of who we all really are. We are the collective of love. We are one. 

He is the reminder of love that is what we all are inside. He can be you, me or anyone.
