So recently I have made some really simple workout videos I shared online just for fun really. Just to see if I could make some friends or be creative. As well as being unbelievably bored this year like a lot of people are.
Long story short, one of my really lame videos started gaining some traction and started getting thousands of views. I couldn’t believe I had a video take off like this but rather than the encouragement and enthusiasm I expected, hate comments started flowing in by the hundreds insulting my physique to the max!
I was soo not ready for this and I would be lying if I said it didn’t get to my head. I deleted/ disabled all my social media accounts and I will never do that shit again.
I don’t usually care about people’s opinions, I really don’t but I have never faced a thousand people like that and was caught very off guard.
I work out everyday to combat my depression and anxiety as well as to stay regimented.
I should have known better before I ever posted anything that this type of thing was really not for me. I have never felt so low before it unfortunately got to my head.
It probably sounds like a stupid situation but honestly this year has been a huge mental battle for me. I go weeks without conversation with people and am very very antisocial. So this experience has made me wonder in a sense if I have become delusional.
-What I’m basically asking with this post is - Am I delusional or are people just assholes?
-Do I look like I lift at all? or are have people become extra senseless on the internet?
-Has anyone else ever experienced this before?
*Please be honest. I just want unbiased opinion. I’m never going to stop lifting but I should probably change my routine if I really look as bad as they made it.
Here’s a bunch of recent pics
