Soooo yeah! I rekn I’m in pretty good shape. Actually, for my age I’m in amazing shape. But I work in an environment where there is a lot of pressure to look a certain way. I’m surrounded by people half my age with amazing bodies, big shoulders, 6 pack abs blah blah blah. It’s a lot of pressure, let me tell you. It’s taken a long time to stop the idea of chasing the perfect body. (Your body is already perfect, btw). I’m probably never gonna have a 6 pack. But who cares. They’re hard to get. You have to be super lean. When you see men with 6 packs on insta it’s either they’re job to have one; they’re in peak condition for a comp or photo shoot; they’ve “photoshopped” their pic (added shading etc); they use a pharmaceutical leisure product to get that lean, or they’re just a super fit dedicated person (the rarest of them all). Some things I’ve done to feel better about myself is to stop following beautiful people on insta, who have nothing else to offer, so I don’t have to keep seeing and comparing myself to them. In general, I’ve stopped comparing myself to people at all. There’s no competition and no race to be the best. I eat well (not always clean, btw), I train consistently, and mostly I listen to my body. If I need to rest, I rest. There’s only me, trying to be a better version of myself. That’s it. And, tbh, I’m pretty happy with the version of me now. Thanks for reading.
