I lost my health, my regular mentality, my apartment, lost my job and I lost my whole regular life routine. I️ have never felt so lost in what to do with myself and the only thing now I really know what to do is rebuild and start a new.
I’ve never been someone to really reach out for anything unless it’s a necessity but i’m asking anyone that’s willing to help me rebuild back up to my feet, to my normal self, to love, live and thrive again, to help me, no matter if it’s something big or small, or even something small like a hug or a flower or a cup of tea haha.
This made me feel so helpless like I couldn’t protect myself. Obviously I don’t have anywhere near the funds to find a gym and train, but after this experience I feel extremely driven to learn and train to feel better about my well being and safety. As I have been a big fan of the MMA, especially UFC it’s grown into an amazing association.
My goal in life now is to train and become the best that I can be physically and technically especially the drive I have found after experiencing this close to death situation.
To many survivors like me, stay strong and use this as a milestone/turning point in your life. Don’t let this drag you down and define who you are; use it to motivate you to be the person you want to be, and don’t stop being yourself.
Don’t sweat the small stuff either, because there’s many people right now that have your back and will help you through this hard journey to learn from. If you feel like there’s no one, just reach out and, I promise you, someone will be right there by your side. You’ve already got through the hard part. It gets easier from here.
The biggest thing I could learn from this is: be careful, and stay aware of your space and the people you surround yourself with.
Keep people around who support you and everything you do while lifting your spirits, helping you along the way, if so be it. And remember, things are going to take time to heal and get back to normal — but it will happen.
