I thought I’d post a little thank you to T-Nation. My dear friends I’ve had the worst 6 months of my 20 years of existence. There was a pregency with my ex gf, my ex gf being a testosterone vampirilla, failed examinations, a serious fight that left me hospitalised, and horrible depression that almost made me jump of a bridge.
I don’t want to go into too much because its too personal, and prob useless to talk about, but I’ve somehow saved myself. I forgot that sometimes the greatest sin we can commit is forgetting what Kierkagaard said about life, ‘To venture causes anxiety, but not to venture means to lose ourselves’ and also that u have to for a certain extent make your own reality, and not be all ‘poor me, etc’.
I’ve had a lot to deal with over the last 6 months, but recently I got back to training, and I thank the fact that coming to this website one day, and getting my gym clothes made me start to change my life.
I’ve been coming on and off for 4 years, and this has helped me mould myself from a nervous fat weakling, to the charming young man that is studying at a very prestigious british university.
I dunno, there is something about reading the work of TC, (lifes minor irritations, the atomic dog made me go train again) makes me realise that a MAN like me needs to act, to create and to lift f*cking weights.
