You’re walking around your hometown and see nothing but couples walking around. You walk into the mall and its harder to open a girl since she’s being guarded like Fort Knox by her slightly overweight boyfriend. Even worse, your family attempts to drag you down, encouraging you to settle down with a “good girl”. Consumerism is on overdrive and it seems like you’re losing your touch in the game… Too bad for them because you’re better than that.
You take a step back and dig deeper than the surface.
Those couples invading the clubs, bars, malls and your everyday life… They are stuck living a life they have been told to live
Those couples are slightly overweight and have let themselves go… They quit on themselves
Those couples are likely up to their ears in debt… They are running purchases on their credit cards again
Those couples have an odd way of always encouraging you to find a “serious partner”… They are trying to take you down
At this point a light-bulb goes off in your head as you realize that sticker in front of your computer is hitting home. Pain Today or Regret Tomorrow. You suddenly realize, if the mall is packed and clubs/bars are over run with couples… the gym is empty. You go back to the basics. You lift for 2 hours+, spend 4+ hours reading a book, spend 3+ hours practicing a language. You don’t over eat or over drink at the get together, you blend in and continue chugging along.
What’s the point? The holiday season is pre-season for a seasoned player. Pre-season is where winners are made. See you in Spring.
