Not quite a manchild, not quite a man

There are men in life that we may incorrectly identify as a manchild.  In fact, they aren’t immature, they’re simply bewildered by life.  Not only do they not have it together, they’re perpetually in danger of it all coming apart at the seams.

These men go in fits and spurts but they always cycle.  They have a great idea, pursue it for a few weeks, and then give up when it gets too tough.  The big problem is that they honestly don’t know what they want out of life.  They’re still experimenting, trying to figure it all out.

While helping them may seem exciting at times, it can get downright tiring as you feel as though you’re constantly picking up the ball and running with it only to find him slowing down or even dragging his feet.  The trick?  Don’t pick up the ball.  If he has a direction he wants to go in life, be supportive but let him lead.  It’s his life and he, not you, needs to be in control of it.
