Every man carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. From the weight of frustration from not being able to find a job to the weight of lethargy from not being able to sleep at night with that new born baby to the weight of rage for that bitch that betrayed you even though you gave her your heart. Worst of all is the weight of carrying the fact that you know you’re not living up to the strength that is within you. Not being the strongest version of yourself.
All of this resistence accumulates. It grows so heavy that your body feels like its going to break.
So what does a man do when he feels like he’s on the brink of destruction? What does a man do when he feels the weight has become so unbearable?
He learns to lift that shit. He learns to lift it not because he has something to prove but because of who he is to become.
When you discover that all of the challenges in your life are just like the plates that you slap on the barbell. Your asshole boss. Sick Baby. Broken heart. And that each one of them is designed to specifcally to strengthen weaknesses from within your character you not only learn to accept these challenges but you beg for them. Pray. Lay your heavy bourden on my shoulders so that I can grow stronger.
