The Resurrected

No more. I'm done.

I don't want to feel this way anymore. I'm moving forward.

I don't want to be a case of wasted potential.

I've got a good plan for fighting this depression. I've got a good plan to become a better person.

#1: Working out. Whenever I feel like I'm going to spend the day staring at the ceiling again, I work out. So far it's been good to me. I already lost 12 kilos. I'm getting closer to being ripped and in the best shape of my life. I'm 28 now but I feel like before the year ends I'll physically turn 18 again. I'm already the smartest, strongest, and fastest I've ever been. Health is wealth.

#2: Letting go of ego. I do not have to build myself up to anyone. I do not need to tell people what I've achieved.  I do not need to seek validation from anyone as well. There will always be someone better than me. Every person I meet will always be better at me at something. I will stay humble.

#3: Letting go of the past. I already lost two years of my life moping around and being sad. I can't live thinking of regrets and what could have been. I can't live focusing on the fact that I feel incredibly lonely. I'll lose a lot more if I continue down this path. The future has so much more to offer if I stay responsible and work hard.

#4: I will always strive to be a good man. Everyone deserves better. And they deserve honesty and truthfulness. They deserve to be treated well. I want to be kind and good to everyone, including myself.

#5: Follow your heart. It's really simple. If I'm not going to be happy, I shouldn't do it. I shouldn't overthink the variables and factors. I may not know who I am yet, but the heart knows what it wants.

#6: Be real. No more personas. No more gimmicks. I will stay true to myself. I will say no when it's not something I want. I will not push myself to become something I am not. In addition to that, I have to get to know myself more. I can't live my life not knowing myself.

#7: I can learn to do anything. It's not an ego thing. It's a reality. So far, whatever endeavor it is that I deem worth pursuing, I have been able to crush it. It only takes me a month or two to become an expert at anything. I have to recognize that I have this gift. The biggest sin would be to waste it.

#8: Life is beautiful but harsh. It's unforgiving. I am not entitled to anything. I will have to work for everything I have. Sometimes, things will be taken away from me. Sometimes, people will take advantage of me. Things will not always work out, but I'll never give up. I only have one life on this earth, and I will not waste this.
