I am really struggling to equate ruthlessness with the friendship. Ruthlessness can be so cold and heartless! I find that when I come from the heart I am incapable of being ruthless.
You NEED to claim your power both as a warrior and as a male! Learning to stand FIRM in your knowledge and to ACT ruthlessly is a prerequisite of warriorship! It is good to come from the heart and to uphold the Yellow Rose of Friendship, but do not use this as a justification to be weak and fainthearted! We either support people in their strengths, or we support them in their weaknesses!
