Tunnel Vision - Coming up for air

When an all consuming goal of mine recently came to a screeching halt, I was brought into a burst of depression and anxiety. I was living a life of tunnel vision, I wanted it so bad, but all of a sudden it felt like everything was crumbling under me. Time off work, some loved ones reaching in and pulling me out from the lowest I've been in a long time, and a new focus brought me back up for air.

It's a funny thing, perspective. Suddenly I saw what I was sacrificing for this goal of mine. Relationships, family, work, and mental health. My mental game has improved a lot in the last year as an athlete, but I'm discovering I have a lot to work on to make my mental game strong in other areas of life. Something I will absolutely need help with.

I've refocused some goals of mine, some different competitions, more focus on career, relationships, and most importantly, my mental health.

I still have lofty goals in the lifting world, but change is good. I want to be the best I can be in all aspects of life.
