Why I’m done trying to be “man enough” | Justin Baldoni

This video was originally recorded at a TED talk conference in 2017.

In this video Justin discusses how he is working towards redefining masculinity. He challenges people not just be good men, but good humans, and opens up about his own struggles to break down his ideas around what “being a man” meant.

Baldoni has a challenge for men: “See if you can use the same qualities that you feel make you a man to go deeper. Your strength, your bravery, your toughness: Are you brave enough to be vulnerable? Are you strong enough to be sensitive? Are you confident enough to listen to the women in your life?”

Hi there! I'm an actor, producer, and writer who is devoted to storytelling and mental health awareness. After struggling through my own mental health, I found that non-traditional resources, like the ones we explore on More Than You See, helped me immensely get through my dark times. Thus, this website and podcast were born! I look forward to helping you gain agency over your mental health journey as you build your own toolkit of resources, tips, and ideas. Because you never know what might help pull you out of the darkness, and we are all More Than You See.
