Hi Brig- you are turning 17 today, and you will have a huge growth phase into becoming a man this year. I grew 15 cm, and gained 15kg at 17 years old. You resemble me in so many ways.
I want you to grow in a brave, strong man. I have attached a book- a treasure- called Bronze Age Mindset. It teaches about being a man. Do not cower in front of the women attempting to emasculate you. You are strong, smart and brave. I love you, and this will help with the journey into manhood- keep it secret, keep it will you. Remember the bar mitvah in Leucate? You are awesome.
