    Should you start lifting?

    Hello everyone, my name is Jonah. This is my first post I will be making on this website, and this is the first time I have really ever been on this site. I'm on here after watching the Zyzz documentary and finding out he was on bodybuilding.com when he started out. I thought perhaps that you guys could find some motivation in my story. I'm 17 and I started working out about 4 months ago. I have struggled with social anxiety and self-esteem my whole life. I can remember being scared of large groups, starting and keeping conversations, and generally showing any sort of confidence. Ever since I have started lifting my overall confidence has shot up, and I'm no longer scared to engage random people in conversation. Not only has my mental health improved, but I have become more confident about my personal beliefs as well. It is hard to describe the amount lifting / BB has helped me with my mental health. It is hard to describe the full scope of how much I appreciate lifting and everyone involved with it. This post is for anyone who is considering starting lifting, but is hesitant for self-esteem reasons. Just ****ing do it. It was the best decision I have ever made. Once you start improving your own body, you want to improve all other areas of life as well. I cannot stress this enough, just lift.

    For anyone who is struggling and needs some advice, please DM me. I'm really not sure how DMs work on this site, but I will figure it out.

    Thanks for reading,
    Jonah

    Happy you found what improves your quality of life Jonah. It can be lifting or any outlet that you enjoy, use as therapy to release emotion, or anything you can progress in. Best of luck with the rest of your life and if you have any questions you can shoot me a DM. I'm not that much older than you I'm going to be 29 years in less than 3 months. I was also that socially awkward teenager who was longing for respect and sense of belonging from other people though I knew what I wanted out of life but I was a loner. Now I am happy being my own best company and doing my own thing and I still have friends. I'm going to give you a rep and also add you on my friends list. You can accept if you want. I am talking to you because I relate to you and this was also something I've experienced. I'm glad I had a support system who made me not give up. It gets better remember that. That is one thing I wish I knew at your age but know now and I have hope.

    Yea, mental health really benefits from regular workouts, even if just cardio. But I've also noticed my confidence boosting as well.

    Been this way my whole life.

    Why? You'll just get fat and lazy and die earlier. Not much difference at all really. Both bad for the planet and you're just making yourself look fat. Either way, you're going to be a greener pastures for the rest of your life. ))))
