"Mostly I just think that Atticus Finch is one of, if not the best example of healthy masculinity in literature."

“Sometimes we treat emotions as if they are facts about the world: The stronger the emotion, the stronger our belief that the emotion is based on absolute fact. “If I feel unsure, I am incompetent.” The stronger the emotion, the stronger our belief is that the emotion is based on absolute fact. “If I feel unsure, I am incompetent.” “If I get lonely when left alone, I shouldn’t be left alone.” If I feel confident about something, it is right.” “If I’m afraid, it is threatening.” “I love him, so he must be OK.”
If we assume that our emotions represent facts about the world, we may use them to validate our thoughts or our actions. This can be trouble if our emotions get us to ignore the facts.”
