It took me a long time and a lot of hard work to get to where I am. I’ve always suffered from insecurity and low self-esteem. For years I trained hard in the gym to change my body into something that I thought would make me more secure and happier. That didn’t really work because I was never really happy with the way that I looked so I just trained harder and harder.
Then BOOM - shoulder injury. Bad. And I had to stop training completely.
The regression sent me into a depression and I worried that I’ll never get back to my best physical shape. Recently I started to work more on my mind than my body. I’ve had to learn patience and acceptance of what I can’t change.
Accepting myself for who I am and not comparing myself to others. Although it’s tough, and yes some days are better than others, it’s a challenge I think we all could gain something from. Your mind is more powerful than your body could ever be. - @LawrenceLondonx
