I have been carrying with me a youthful idea for over four years now. In the name of getting healthy, a lot of people get reluctant toward fitness. No matter how many social media advertisements or misguided by their parents, it is very hard to overcome the false ego pressure. Nobody wants to leave their comfort zone. Maybe you feel you are going to become a bigger risk. While leaving your comfort zone is not an easy thing for anyone it seems to be very tough for many people.
As we all know, the lives of most people are not pleasure-free; it seems like there is always something that we are capable of regret. These are all good reasons to leave it to others; don’t own my ass.

I am sitting here now carrying around the outdated belief that I could not be healthy if I didn’t gain muscle mass. Before focusing on fitness I never cared about these kinds of things because my only priority was perfection. However, this type of attitude continues to form because nobody other than you can serve. It doesn’t matter who you are. Who you become, will make a big difference. Now that I have been through a lot of injuries to my knees I cannot focus on my belief that I am not beautiful if I don’t gain muscle.
I might be 100% natural, but I cannot live my life believing that I am unhealthy. I need to accept who I am and not let being youthful dominate me. I cannot go and be hateful and focus on perfection. Self-bullying or toxic pride is detrimental to you. If you are trying to be healthy, that’s a good thing; if you are trying to be skinny, that’s a good thing; and if you are trying to be strong, that’s a good thing.
I will not stand there and be criticized or pressured by others for my physique and self-image. As a part of the population that fights for society, we are not the most beautiful ones. However, I am content with this. My body is my body and it reflects the shape of the people who surround me. The people that surround me make my life easier. It is very difficult to build your self-esteem if you are constantly critiqued. Almost everybody has a negative behavior, good behavior, and disengaged personality.
I just want to focus on how I can do better instead of what other people do. Growing older, I don’t have to look like a stubborn teenager anymore because I respect everyone else. As you get older, life becomes more manageable if you don’t block it out. We have to acknowledge that we are still not under the age of 21. We are not created for the competitive field. Therefore, I have to be more understanding. People even though the generation next to me might also be 20 years older than me, will have to figure out their path.
They will do better than us because they didn’t have a set career progression we did. Staying young is important, but we are beyond that at some point. We can never be young forever, but we can never be old forever either. Therefore, we can take steps forward on our journey to being healthy.
