The Mental Violation
This story isn’t for the faint of heart, it’s graphic and intense, but it offers a lot to be learned from. It’s a collection of all the things that any normal human wouldn’t share about themselves, especially for the entire world to read. I’m ready to share how I battled my inner demons and overcame my self-destructive habits, which has allowed me to really start living for the first time.
Each of us must conquer our mental violations in order to live the life we’ve always dreamed of. I grew up thinking I was a loser and my depression got so bad it had me thinking about suicide every day for years on end. I didn’t care whether I lived or not. Unfortunately, I was reckless and made a variety of poor decisions in my search for acceptance. My life went into a downhill spiral until I slammed my face into my “rock bottom.”
I transformed from the shithead party animal I used to be who barely passed high school, to getting accepted into one of the most prestigious business programs nearly a decade later. I’ve managed to accomplish things I couldn’t have even dreamt of in the past; you happen to be reading one of them. I think we as humans tend to sell ourselves short of what we’re truly capable of achieving. It’s no secret that life is tough and surely sucks at times, but shouldn’t we at least find a way to make living it worthwhile? It’s time to stop holding ourselves back from living the life we dream of; all we have to do is conquer our Mental Violation!
