Lately I have been struggling with anxiety, cluttering my mind with negative thoughts. Busying myself with minutiae instead of taking those uncomfortable steps that I need to create success in life. We, especially men, don't like to talk about these feelings of doubt, insecurity and worry cause we're concerned it makes us look weak. We feel that most of our peers won't relate when in actuality they may be feeling just like you do. I believe the weaker person cannot acknowledge these feelings, bring them to the frontal lobe and confront them head on.
We usually talk physical, post pictures about going to the gym and exercising, but just as much as we need that we need mental health as well. The more I talk about it to my peers, the more I find more of us struggle than I thought. Just knowing others do provides relief and that is part of why I am writing this now, to say I deal with anxiety and I am going to face it head on, declutter my mind and not allow my subconscious to rule. After Prodigy passed and hearing the words of everyone who spoke at his memorial, TIME was what each addressed. i want to make sure I spend my time here properly, do what I was put on this planet to accomplish and spend as much time with family, kids and friends as possible.
Today, July 1st, I start with breathing (10 minutes) and guided meditation (20 minutes) and will continue to build up on it one day at a time 👊🏼🙏🏼🤙🏼
