Down your beers then out-drink and out-fight us all? Sleep in the gutter and play footy in the morning? Yeah. Nice one.
When your mate Matt told you he’s feeling crap, you told him to “harden the fuck up”, or “suck it up, pussy”.
You probably don’t know when your mates actually need to have a chat or are feeling crap ‘cos you don’t ask. I’m not talking about the chat you had at the game last Saturday, or at the pool table at that bar last summer.
Suicide is the leading cause of death amongst young folks and most of them are blokes.
Yeah, wtf right?
We’re standing up to be counted. We’re saying it’s time we chuck out that tough Aussie bloke stereotype and bring back the laid-back Aussies. Speak up if you’re not feeling right. Soften the fck up like a real man would.
Look after your mates if something seems a bit off. Ask them if they’re okay. If they’re really okay. Ya gut will usually be right, even if your mate doesn’t wanna talk about it. Grab a beer and have a chat.
Tell your mates and your bros. Get on Facebook and Twitter. Share your thoughts or experiences. So go on, be tough and go soft.
It is time to admit something is wrong or isn’t right and take action.
