Three years ago, I was overweight, working a dead end job as a bank teller after my university undergraduate degree, I was in love with a girl who just went through a bad breakup and I wanted to play ‘Captain Save a Hoe’. Thankfully, she rejected me.
Thankful for the shitty situations I was going through in my life.
I was depressed, hopeless, and hated myself.
I met a friend of mine who introduced me to this sub. From there I went through the regular stages every blue pill man goes through when they make this discovery. I read posts, oh so many posts, then books, videos, whatever I could get my hands on.
Over the last three years I...
Got back in shape, went back to university to finish a second degree, got accepted to my dream professional school program which sets me up indefinitely financially - this wasn’t easy as I had dumpster shit set on fire grades from my 1st degree. Everyone from my friends, relatives and parents told me to stop, quit and start earning money. I said fuck you and kept working on me.
I spinned plates, rejected girls I would never dream of rejecting 3 years ago. This isn’t necessarily an important part of my journey but it’s like the cherry on top of the sundae.
I stopped giving a fuck. I cut out toxic people in my life, stopped (most) toxic habits that were dragging me down. I built discipline, learned resilience, learned that defeat and rejection literally made me more hungry, and I learned that fear and risk are huge motivators.
More importantly I came to a point where I’m finally happy and in love with myself and what I’ve become. I walk around feeling like I can do anything and I can’t describe what that feels like. It’s euphoric.
I won’t sugar coat it for you: it was fucking hard, gruelling and sometimes felt demotivating. But I grinded every single fucking day. I didn’t stop and I haven’t yet.
This community has truly changed my life, and I thank you for that.
