How I Use the Brotherhood Marking
When I think of the word ‘brotherhood,’ I think of a non-sexual, deep and caring love between two people. While the word itself implies a bond between men, women are participants in brotherhood.
The love is undoubtedly masculine in nature. It’s a sort of competitiveness, but never at the others’ expense. Being a psychotically paranoid person, I often see most men as a threat. I am suspicious of them and am always on guard. This state results in me being apprehensive, distracted, and irritable.
By focusing on the Brotherhood marking, I change my perception of potential threats as close friends, people I love; people that want to be better than me, and I want to be better than them. A dance we pursue in good-natured fun. Fun that is given closure with a bear hug and a round of drinks.
