My Struggles With Mental Health, Dieting, And Chasing The Perfect Body
My own struggles with mental health have changed my view of what it truly means to be healthy. This is my personal story laid bare…
Mental health is a subject close to my heart. As you’ll discover, I’ve battled with my own inner demons for some time. In fact, I still do. Although you might never see me show it externally, I doubt myself, think negatively about my body image, and have questioned my very existence to the point where I’ve considered taking my own life.
What you’re about to read are my inner most thoughts and feelings. Most of which I’ve shied away from sharing with anyone.
Which begs the question, “Why the fuck have I chosen to write an article, bearing my soul for the world to see?”
After all, you probably just want to know how to lift more mass and build the perfect body, right? This talk of mental health is just flowery nonsense. You might even say it’s self-indulgent crap that I’ve got no business using my platform to promote.
And if that’s how you feel, I’ve got no problem with you skipping right on to the next article. Believe me, you won’t have offended me.
So if you want to read about building a ton of muscle or stripping body fat, then stop reading and move on. This isn’t for you.
But if you’re interested in my story in its rawest form, I want to take you right back to the beginning. And here’s where we’ll start.
In my darkest hours, I’ve thought about taking my own life several times over.
