why don't you lift? are you some sort of girly man who would rather whine than do something to improve yourself?
Because I fall in and out of the habit. Right now I've fallen off the wagon. Once I get back into the routine I'll be fine.
>tfw if you had lifted constantly over the years instead of on and off for months you would have look sexy as fuck instead of average
>be attracted to 2D
>people ask why I work out so much and never interact with girls
>lifting does not get you anything except vanity points
i don't know why people always say this. there's evidence suggesting that regular exercise is just as effective as antidepressants at relieving symptoms of depression. lifting also gives a person goals to work towards. if you spend 40 hours a week working a mindless job and the rest of your waking life on the internet, lifting will give you some sort of direction.
i don't interact with anyone, i have no social media, and in fact i dont like feeling like i cant blend into a room because i look like i lift, but it's something i do because without it i would just be mindlessly playing video games and feeling like shit physically and mentally all time time. vanity isn't the only reason to lift.
This, do you get to the point where you're starting to look good, and then give up.
For me its like a subconscious sabotage.
Tfw no amount of exercise will make me handsome.
I am not a homo like you. and I do not live to please women, after I try to be noticed by them.
Maybe there is a reason you feel depressed. You are just artificially creating happiness. I lifted for a long time and realized it was dumb. No point in running from something that can't be ran from.
I hate lifting and self-improvement for self-improvement's sake doesn't make me feel good, or proud, or any other positive emotion.
Not him, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with lifting for your own physical health and well-being. The problem is, you wouldn't be posting this if that was your motive.
You lift because you like praise and compliments on social media. You don't actually want to lift... you want the image of being a guy who lifts.
The problem is "self-improvement" in today's understanding is all about vanity. That's why you have negative bias towards it.
If you looked at weightlifting as an easy way to prolong your youth and maintain your physical health, you'd probably be more interested in it. Unfortunately, too many people have turned it into something you do in order to show off or appear tough.
