My hips didn't make me feel like an 80yr old today
Gonna keep tryin' em out NEWay
So this girl I've known since grade 2 said that I inspired her to start powerlifting.
Probably the greatest feeling in the world when she told me that. The greatest gift I could give someone is the gift of powerlifting
So she's been doing it a few months and what not...
She's already stronger than me
And of course I express my pride and my love
but inside I feel sad
and then I feel like a shitty person for feeling sad
Like wow, I use all my time, energy, resources, and spend years and years trying not to suck at this, and am finally at a somewhat mediocre level of strength. She waltzes in and in a couple of months can out lift me.
