I Used To Be A “Bodybuilder”…Before I Grew Up…Maybe You Should Too?

wp-1487995125049.jpg

Without a shadow of a doubt…one of the absolute…realest things you read today.

7000 words…and…maybe your waste of time to view them…who knows?

Alas I continue….

As a soft tissue specialist…movement analyst…and elite performance coach…I run my own clinic fixing “Broken people”…working in numerous different capacities…with a vast demographic of the general public…all the way up to the highest level of elite sports…movement…and performance.

It’s about assessment…treatment…rehabilitation…home care…after care…and individual homeostasis…no matter a persons age or profession.

So…I find dealing with the whole bodybuilding and aesthetic body image topics…very difficult these days.

I come at it with clinical and logical reasoning…but more importantly…deep…personal experience.

Get your crash helmets ready my friends…because I’m about to probably offend and bewilder a few people here…without ever trying or wanting to…for nothing more than what I personally feel…is the needed…greater good.

I’m certain that my opinion is more valid…honest…heartfelt…passionate…and pure than 99% could ever begin to offer you…which…is said with pride…not arrogance.

A pride from knowing that I live this…breathe this…am this…get up in the morning for it…and dedicate every waking second I can to evolving…learning…changing…developing…and honing my craft.

DISCLAIMER…I’m not just talking about bodybuilding and bodybuilders here…I’m not having a go at people in particular…or issuing any direct…specific attack.

I’m talking about it all…this aesthetic lifestyle the world is being force-fed down it’s throat.

I’m talking about the way the aesthetics…the modelling…health…fitness…beauty…cosmetic…fashion…celebrity…television…music…radio…and social industries are together…as a collective…as a combined whole in 99% of instances…in this day and age.

“Popular culture.”

It’s all one big industry now really if we are being honest to ourselves.

It’s all the same thing…merged into a sprawling covenant of lies…dressed up and packaged to whichever target audience is being sought out.

You can’t separate them all…the lines have been so blurred that they need each other to survive and exist…frantically criss crossing one another.

It has well and truly spiraled out of control.

It’s not just them it’s about us…

This post also applies to any man or woman obsessing or worrying about that perfect body…that perfect image…look…shape…size…status…representation…or life.

My aim is not to hurt any feelings…it’s to try and help…because I genuinely care…and because…somebody needs to have the balls to say it.

I write things such as this…not to get on my soap box…not to go on like I know it all…but…because…it all makes coherent sense…although maybe a little too full on for some…but…I’ve seen the benefit in myself and in many others…so…I know it has a place to be said.

Doing what I do on a daily basis and seeing what I see…I know that this is one of the most prevalent things that needs to be spoken about and discussed in general society today…especially for the next generation…as it’s only going to get worse and worse…at the most rapid of rates.

It’s a global form of terrorism that few can seem to see.

I honestly believe that the majority can see it…but…it’s much deeper than that.

Terrorism!?…!?…!?!?!?…….!!!!!!!?!!????!?!!!!….This guy mad!?!?!?!?!?

It may not be political…although we see it all consistently influences politics…as even that’s now like watching an episode of Jerry Springer…or The Jersey Shore these days.

It’s all about being a celebrity…being noticed…talked about…fake…larger than life…a character…and…nothing,…to do with real tangible politics anymore.

There might not be anybody blowing things up…flying planes into buildings…stabbing or shooting…but there are people still dying over all of this…on a daily basis…both mentally and physically.

Many call that extreme to say within itself…but I always suggest to those people they actually stopped for a second to critically think and look at just how many outlets and avenues those representations I mentioned above…together…amalgamated…as one…as dominant factors and driving forces in society….can create an increased chance of mortality on a human being.

An increased chance…much earlier than necessary…especially if you do not exhibit control.

I find it hard to not see things this way…because these days I’m about the experiences…the evidence…the cold hard facts…the science.

I have to be about all of those…for my job.

It’s not something you really want to dwell on thinking about…at all…but still…in reality…we can’t allow ourselves to be foolish enough…to not be aware of the fact that each time we wake up…there are far…far more things that could kill us in an instance…let alone over a prolonged period of time…than there ever could be beneficial outlets that kept us alive.

We need to bury it into our subconscious…for survival.

I suppose it’s kind of obvious…logically…from the viewpoint of science and evolution…that we are pretty minuscule…irrelevant…and unimportant in comparison to nature or the continued natural existence of the world and it’s preservation.

Sounds blunt…but…that’s real life?

So to think that the increased likelihood of mortality from these outlets is me being far fetched…I say…well…just look around you in general then?

I say…take yourself out of the dream and see how vital it is to look after yourself.

I looked in the mirror and did.

Some people were just going to go and it was their time…when it was their time…yes…maybe…probably…who knows…that’s life too…but…a lot of people through all of these different criss crossed social ideologies and representations are winding that clock unnecessarily forward…at a staggering rate…for so many different intrinsic and extrinsic reasons.

You physically can’t tell me they aren’t…or they can’t…because I’ve been guilty of it more times than the majority of you reading this post have in the past.

I’m no better than anybody else…in fact…it’s more than likely…I’ve messed up farrr more times in the past than you…and…it’s also highly likely in a previous life…I was a much bigger dick head.

With this…I’ve seen it…experienced it…been a part of it all.

The full explanation of avenues…causes…reasons…probability and exacerbation of the increased chances of mortality caused by these unrealistic socially embedded industries…are far too wide and varied to fully decipher or begin to try and explain in a blog post.

Not only far too wide and varied…but also in a lot of instances…still undiscovered.

It’s all there if you are prepared to sit down and spend the time analysing and questioning it all.

Just think about this…and it’s pretty crazy for me to be able to give just one simple…basic example…which blows every doubt you may have about these statements…completely out of the water.

I don’t actually need to explain it…to prove it…all I have to say is that…we most definitely…obviously…honestly…blatantly…truly…live in a society that takes away and detracts from our natural…human…physiological functionality…and homeostasis…in almost every area we have.

It’s unquestionable…I don’t personally think you or I could physically argue otherwise.

We don’t even need to break it down further than that…really…do we?

Now…

Most importantly perhaps…I feel…is the most sadistic form of that terrorism…the constant mental variation…the constant mental and cognitive torture…the psychological bullying.

These industries together…put the minds of so many people…on a global scale in this day and age…into what many if they we are being honest could only describe as constant sympathetic arousal.

Some may be pulling a face about that…but…it’s what I get told behind closed doors…as a professional.

Perhaps the byproduct of 1st world problems…but still…that can be worse than death…which again…sounds extreme…sounds crazy…sounds “Extra”…but…to me it is…if you’re never going to snap out of it…or escape it.

If you are going to live that way day in day out…constant sympathetic arousal…second by second.

I’d take dying any day…over a life of that…seriously…and I know that sounds harsh…believe me…but..it…is…what it is…I’m sorry.

Constant torture…constant mental and neuromuscular anguish…pain that festers away at your life…eating away at all the good…creating absolute tragedy…bitterness…chaos and resentment.

The brain and the nervous system can be more complex and cruel than many in society are prepared to learn about…talk about…or admit to themselves or anybody else.

You can very easily be a billionaire for example…living in a mind that creates a much…much…worse quality of life…than a bloke with no money…with just enough for him and his family to survive…in a third world country…who’s content with life.

Where you live and what you have doesn’t even come into it…as long as you have enough to survive…as long as you are mentally…in the “Right place” for “You.”

That gets twisted more often than not in my opinion…gets missed…overlooked or forgotten about.

Just go look at the stats on anxiety…stress disorders and paranoia levels from kids…teenagers…all they way up to flipping 60 year olds in this day and age…tell me there isn’t a major problem. (And that’s only the stats from the people who have actually come forward about their issues)

Go and look at the stats…on how many different categorised versions of anxiety now exist and for what reasons those categorisations were invented and tell me we haven’t got a problem.

Look at all of the non-biological mental health problems plaguing an evolved society in every class system…every sex…every age…every walk of life…it’s out of control.

Look at the sheer amount of non biological categories being invented in general…the amount of happy pills that are getting produced and dished out along side them.

I say approach the mental health sector and ask them if the actual quality of life inside of people’s minds is getting better and better…if the services are flourishing…or if they are stressed and at their wits end on how to cope with the sheer volume.

The representation of life has evolved so far from what is natural…sustainable…that there is bound to be some form of malfunction at some point…one that we will all need to address…if we want to progress…it’s just inevitable.

It would happen if life was more natural and realistic…it always has in some way or another…it’s normal…so…what do we expect when it’s gone this far? (Take into consideration I come from a culture where they are currently gearing up to push virtual reality sex aids and super model life like robotic partners on us all…and…if you are reading this…it’s pretty likely you do as well)

It’s said with respect but I feel it’s naivety to dismiss these subsections…subcultures…and amassed categories…their manipulation and control…as irrelevant.

They create avenues that I guarantee either affect you or somebody close that you have contact with on a daily basis…right now…and are affecting people mentally and physically…in so many negative ways…world wide…from so many different angles of cumulative propaganda.

It affected me…in my own ways…which is why I’m speaking about it in the open.

befunky-collage11.jpg

It’s going to be hard to truly express and quantify this post as I have dedicated the last 11 years to this type of thing and within that time I’ve been privileged and lucky enough to see…learn and experience a few things.

I’ve bustled my way through the game…on my own…trying to grow from all of my mistakes.

That’s why these days I’m paid to help a varied demographic of people through many different musculoskeletal and neuromuscular problems…in a private…one on one clinic…or out in the field as a soft tissue specialist…movement analyst…and elite performance coach.

It’s not that I know it all…I don’t…far from it.

As I say…we are always consistently learning…evolving…developing and growing…but…this type of topic falls within my area of expertise…it falls upon an area and part of what I specialise in and a part of what I get paid to do.

This isn’t just a random blog post.

With this especially…I’ve been there…done that…worn the flipping T-shirt.

You too have experiences…within you’re endeavours…that transcend generic expertise…that I do not understand myself…we all have them…and I am always prepared to analyse…compare and contrast your logic on those that you specialise in yourself.

If you can show me that 2+2 makes 4…then 2+2…makes…4…and I accept it…every single time.

So let’s please just address a few things before I start getting any deeper…before anybody starts going mad at me and getting emotional and upset.

I’m actually the guy that male and female bodybuilders/aesthetic gym trainers/models/gym goers etc etc…go to when they mess themselves up in the end…when they finally realise that they need help and have never really had a clue about the human body.

I’ve been right where they were myself in the past.

I’m the guy they trust when they admit they haven’t discovered anything about biotensegrity…exercise…true physiology…or movement on their path chasing a distorted…manufactured ideology.

I’ve been right where they were myself in the past.

I show them respect when they realise that what they do is a manifestation of a deeper…bigger problem.

A problem they need help with…just as I did myself.

This isn’t an assault…or an attack…it’s the words that will help…if you are prepared to listen.

If you don’t…well…fair enough…do you…I wish you nothing but prosperity and success.

If a person or establishment approaches me to work with them…it’s my job…and a part of what I’m passionate about…it’s nothing special…I’m just simply telling you how it is and how it pans out the majority of times when dealing with this subject matter.

What usually causes the biggest problems…is when I say….

If you do bodybuilding/modelling/aesthetics…fashion etc etc…if you focus on the way you look…if you promote the way you look or concern yourself with how people view you…your life and your choices…and vice versa…then…you aren’t in shape…at all…you’re unfit physically but most importantly and dangerously…mentally.

The games rigged that way I’m afraid…and…it’s house always wins…every single time.

If you can’t see that…well…I respect you regardless…but I’ve personally seen it all too many times with my own eyes…right in front of me…to think any differently.

The body does not work properly without the mind…it always has to start there…as it’s the driver controlling that steering wheel across the bumps in the road.

These outlets…evert the mind.

If you overly latch on to these genres…then…you’ve bought into the hype…found your defence mechanism and you’re currently in a bad way…just like I used to be years ago…just like we are supposed to be.

  1. You’ve either allowed yourself to become manipulated by these industries into thinking you are a beacon of motivation…setting the correct example for yourself and everybody else to follow.
  2. Allowed yourself through all of the media and a vast array of social propaganda to believe that you are now the definitive embodiment of fitness…life…success…strength…winning…prosperity…popularity…well being and health.
  3. Or…you’ve just been suckered into thinking you are actually helping people by being a part of it

It’s pretty delusional to be honest…any of it…all of it.

It really is when you break it down on a cellular level…and beyond.

That’s coming from a guy who was bang into it all remember…so I can’t judge.

If you focus on aesthetics and the way you look and they are your primary concern…then you are literally…the absolute polar opposite of fit and healthy…I need people to understand that.

They are the complete…opposite…in almost so many ways it’s mind blowing.

They have absolutely nothing to do with fitness…health…happiness…mental health…well being…self discovery or positive longevity.

You really are in trouble if you can’t see any of that.

It’s not a path you want to be on if you are genuinely looking for homeostasis…calm…and prosperity in life.

befunky_vid77.jpg

Most of what I do now involves the neuromuscular connection…deals with how the brain and the nervous system work in unison and tandem with “The body” and it’s movements.

I’m so lucky…more than I ever imagined…because…I get to have real human conversations and interactions…in a private setting…one on one…behind closed doors…in a world that to me is full of filters…lies…false prophets…and papered over cracks.

A beautiful…amazing…world…still…none the less.

I get told the things…in confidence…under the guise of professionalism and data protection…that people don’t know how to tell their husbands…their wives…sisters…brothers…friends…acquaintances or colleagues…and I honour that silence.

It’s like going to the school of life everyday…I’m always learning…so…I’m thankful.

It’s a gift…yet in turn a curse…as consistently on a daily basis I get to see…hear…feel and experience the “Real world”…and you begin to see that it’s nothing like the fronts that people are putting up now socially…dominantly.

Again…been there myself…many times.

You start to see that not many truly talk about their deepest feelings and beliefs in the open within general society nowadays and it’s understandable why.

Most people are scared shitless of doing so and the majority are inventing or following blind representations to hide or try and find who they really are…or to feel accepted and part of something…so it’s difficult to stand up to their indoctrinated group persona.

That’s why we have so many carbon copies walking around from an array of different manufactured groups and categories…conforming to whatever it is they have been marketed into thinking is their “Acceptable normality.”

I gave up on bodybuilding about 4/5 years ago when I grew up…when I realised it was a clinical psychological condition…that needed eradicating.

I got into it at 20…when I was immature…naive…just finishing puberty and didn’t understand the world.

My emotions were all over the place…I didn’t know who I was and was open to be manipulated.

I’m 31 now…I’m a grown man.

I can tell you for certain that the manipulative type of conventions and representations from these type of outlets…absolutely chew up and spit people out.

They attack those who have private issues within their minds…like we all have…each and every single one of us at some point in our lives.

They are masquerading as many different positive and enticing entities…while striking the people who are lost…precariously selecting individuals who are trying everything within their power to run away from those issues and put up a front…instead of dealing with the real fundamental route causes of their problems.

You will find that…most…find…these areas…from an initial search for some form of emancipation.

Perhaps even more severe…alarming…reckless and hazardous…is how they attack people who aren’t even running away at all.

How they target people who are simply searching to find their way…people who just want to help…who want to leave their mark on the world and just don’t know any better…or…they latch on to those who just need an answer to a fundamental question in life they do not understand how to overcome…one which is causing some form of mental dysfunction or self doubt.

That dysfunction…you guessed it…yes…again…that is going to happen to each and every single last one of us at some point…as there are many questions we will not have the answers to in life…it’s the stimulus for growth that breaks so many of us if we are not careful…so I need you to see that we are all susceptible.

Even if you think I’m a mad man…just…trust me…take a leap of faith and start drumming this into your kids heads…because there is a wave coming that 99% of future parents cannot see and are not going to be able to handle if things carry on going the way they are going.

Think about it…logically…please.

As soon as people hide behind all of this bullshit it suddenly becomes acceptable…it becomes something of substance and if you can’t already see that…then let me point out what I see…

The majority of modern day Western society obsesses about the way they look…how they are viewed…and what other people are doing/thinking/saying…much…much more than any proper tangible…viable problem that could and needs to be fixed in the world.

It’s how they sell us so much pointless shit…so many pointless beliefs and ideologies we don’t need…by attacking our minds.

It has poisoned even 3rd world countries and alike…

I’ve just come back from travelling Indonesia…the small…undeveloped…beautifully untouched islands and you can see the American dream starting to poison those now.

Each place in the world has their own problems…but I’m talking about the ones on my side of the world…affecting myself and those around me.

Society is totally brainwashed into thinking things like bodybuilding…physique modelling…modelling…fashion…celebrity lifestyle and aesthetic social notoriety are “normal”…beneficial…positive…good…reliable…honourable outlets to have.

Things that only a demigod or goddess could do…something to be admired…something of achievement…substance…fame and valour.

It’s honestly a joke…it’s wrecking lives and communities.

Just look at it all now…you will find them in their millions across that social media going on like they have just finished open heart surgery…like they have just performed CPR on a drowning child…just cured aids…cancer…world poverty and hunger…in one selfie…all because they have a pair of biceps…a sexy arse…flat stomach…big tits…pretty face or just did a few squats.

Like the human body and mind don’t crave exercise no matter who you are…like it isn’t an evolutionary trait?

There’s no purity…no heartbeat…or soul in what they are doing.

I was bad when I was a part of it…but never quite this bad.

I still had a pure message…I just wanted to help myself and others…but instead was just completely blinded…tricked…bamboozled and coerced into thinking I was creating a positive outlet…when I wasn’t…at all.

What this is now….is just…something else all together and it’s rapidly getting bigger and bigger…and it’s becoming the norm.

It’s poison.

The people in charge and at the forefront of health…fitness and well being are in it for themselves…not for you.

Those that are in it for you…have the smallest voices because all they have to sell you…is your own self and your own actions.

People’s lives are their own and I advise you to always do what your heart beats for no matter what anybody says…but when somebody can see so many fundamental flaws in the name of caring…sometimes…it’s just time to at least question.

20171010_085327.jpg

Think about it…think about…this.

Who dominates health…well being and fitness…when you are turning to it in need of help…who are you going to 99% of times in this modern day.

Bodybuilders…fitness models…models…celebrities…”personal trainers”…steroid abusers…drug addicts…charlatans…medical drug pushers…supplement and pyramid sellers…and bribed professionals.

It’s not the people who are selling you yourself…selling you science and evolution…true professionals…people like myself are all blocked off by the conglomerates and social masses…because we don’t have a gimmick.

It’s the people who are trying to sell you them and their own lifestyle who prevail.

The people trying to sell you their company and it’s marketing tools…trying to sell you the magic pills…powders and potions along with god knows what other product…service or ideology.

It’s congested with people and companies who are raping and pillaging our minds…our bodies and our bank accounts…for their monetary and psychological gain…for their betterment.

You…him…her…I…we…don’t get a look in…really.

Consumerism…consumes…and if it was honour that prevailed…we would be ok.

Let me break down 99% of the modern day bodybuilders…Facebook celebs…Instagram models…fitness celebs and all the other bullshit artists out here today dominating the markets.

 

  • They physically can’t walk past a mirror without either obsessing…fixating…posing…checking themselves out…flexing…or bigging themselves up…while at the same time deep down actually constantly putting themselves down…picking themselves apart.

 

  • They spend the vast majority of their day obsessing about how they and other people look…with a constant need for attention…acceptance and approval from others…or a need to be told they look amazing…are an inspiration…and are good enough to exist.

 

  • They have a constant need to show off their body…be dominant…looked at and told they are bigger…better…sexier…stronger…fitter or more dominant than the “normal” person…or the person they actually truly feel like inside…behind all of the fronts.(Even if they don’t start off that way…it’s the nature of the industries they are in)

 

  • They can’t go out without looking like a female street walker or male gigolo selling their flesh…because they feel inadequate if people can’t see or make out their body…their beauty…their sexiness and “amazing achievements.”

 

  • They become nothing more than an aesthetic representation…nothing but a piece of meat…losing track of everything important and beneficial in life…descending into madness as the body runs it’s natural cause of decay into their older years.

 

  • They dangerously and frantically obsess about body fat percentage and food…while placing those insecurities upon every single other person who they inspire…even though they possess no real knowledge…background…or experience of true physiological nutrition and how the human body actually functions…exists and survives.

 

  • They obsess about food to the nth degree and go through stages of extreme restriction…then uncontrollable binging…while passing all of those insecurities to other people…by trying to pass them off as the normal…acceptable…beneficial…everyday thing to do.

 

  • They suffer mood swings and depressive outbursts over the way they look and what they ate…some times it’s elation…over the top fulfillment and joy…some days it’s just not anywhere near good enough and life is suddenly descending into chaos.

 

  • They frantically search and buy into any blag…trick…or method out there they feel could make them that little bit better…even if they don’t work…wasted their time and money…could kill…or adversely affect them.

 

  • They spend most of their time taking silly…pointless…dangerous…unnecessary…mass produced…bashed up supplements…available in snake oil shops…sold by snake oil salesman…that they have no clue about….or…they take an array of different drugs and hormones that could very easily kill or mess them up in the end…yet…still promote it all as positive to everybody else and the “norm.”

 

  • They follow the crowd…they follow whatever is acceptable within their category or target audience to stay popular and relevant and would sell their souls for a shot at fame…would sell you and their granny for a shot!

 

  • They step on stages or get pictures taken…desperate to be told they are good enough by a person or people they don’t even know…desperate to be told that what they were doing was right and something people looked up to…desperate for a following online to tell them that they were the man…or the woman…and…that what they were doing in life was worth it…Like my picture…like my picture…like my picture…please.

 

  • They are deluded enough to think they are part of a specialist privileged community that stands out higher in society…that are actually helping and benefitting people…while missing or not caring about the fact they are crushing themselves and a lot of others around them mentally and physically.

 

  • They spend their life doing something most actually know deep down tears them apart…breaks them down and tires them in so many different ways…yet…would still approach the lost and naive in the hope of getting them to do the same.

 

  • They either see what they are part of and don’t care…or they haven’t got a clue themselves.

 

  • They know nothing about true nutrition…true movement…true exercise…true anatomy or physiology…yet they spend their lives bombarding people with information about nutrition…movement…exercise…anatomy and physiology.

 

  • They take every single serious issue in the world…then decide to focus on solely themselves and even crazier…the way they look…while getting everybody else to do the same…disguising it as fitness…positivity…and health.

 

  • They trick you into the insecurity of believing that everybody who does not see the positivity in their endeavours…is a hater!

 

  • They get away with the fact that most “fit”…in shape…healthy…real…women…that are looked up to nowadays in these promoted groups…have fake tits…fake arses…cosmetic surgery…starvation…filters…photo editors and chemical compounds…to look the way they do.

 

  • The men are just as bad…using filters…chemical compounds…cosmetic surgery…starvation and distortion…to name just a few.

 

You…telling me…that’s…good…that’s…normal…healthy?

Cos I’m telling you that’s the way it is.

Even if I’m wrong about it being 99%…which I profusely doubt…it would be 95% at the minimum…as…we wouldn’t be in this position…this deep and far gone in the first place if it wasn’t a landslide comparative.

Its not said to offend…it’s said…because this is what is going on.

There are great people out there…don’t get me wrong…just…not enough.

It’s like a drug…it’s an unhealthy addiction…it’s like crack.

Coke heads offer you coke at parties…don’t they?

They don’t say…”Stay off this shit…it’s bad for you…it can wreck your life…mess you up…take your soul…kill you…or risk your health.”

They don’t even seem to see or accept cocaine…is crack…just a chopped up…bashed up…less purer version.

They put a spin on it because the white powdered version is more socially dominant and accepted.

They offer it people because it makes them feel better about their own mistakes and as long as the room is doing it…it’s not only now acceptable…but also…not as obvious at face value…that it’s being done to hide from real life and looking for a 3rd party to generate happiness.

It’s done to hide from insecurities and psychological problems…or it’s done from being blind to the problem in the first place.

It’s alll the same thing in the end…when all the dust has settled and all the smoke has cleared…it’s…a…front…a front that creates a CNS response.

Bodybuilding…aesthetics…modelling…etc…are not for those in control of their lives.

Not for those that want to critically think…yet it is so hard for any of us now to avoid.

You become the odd one out if you don’t believe in this modern day filter we have over the natural world.

20171018_094512

It’s spreading like a neurological virus and becoming the accepted norm…meaning in this day and age it’s starting to affect the minds of general society…even the intelligent.

It’s too mainstream to not talk about now.

It’s going to rip the next generation to absolute shreds…because it’s embedded within our tapestry of life…unless we stand and step up.

It’s always been there…throughout history…it’s just now they have the technology and the parameters in place to implement it fully and successfully on a mass scale.

It is affecting the young and the older at a staggering rate.

How many 40/50 year old women you met…who obsess unhealthily about younger women now…who are running around frantically going on about their bingo wings…their tits…stomachs…arses…bodies…look…dress sense…make up…hair…nails…lips…eyebrows…tan…social representation…and if the world still finds them sexy or attractive…no matter how beautiful they are!?

The majority of 16 year olds…20 year olds…30 year olds…are no different!

I never used to see it this way which is why I had to make the change when I did.

How many men do you see at 40/50 now obsessing about getting abs…or arms?

I want the 6 pack…give me the 6pack…how do I build more muscle…it’s not working!

How many men do you meet who say they don’t care about their body…but the second they get in a room with somebody in shape…they get jealous and insecure like little boys.

How many grown men…don’t feel like men…don’t act like men and are told they aren’t men unless they look like a super hero…or have constant alpha male dominance…no matter how intelligent they are…or how much they bring to the table?

We’ve got a majority of these people who never feel good enough…who aren’t allowed to feel good enough…who are always focusing on aesthetics…social representation…and how other people view them…who don’t see the eloquence of their minds and unique individuality…who…are the same people…in charge of the younger generation…the…next…generation.

The evidence is there in plain sight…it’s not even hiding.

How many young yooooung women you met now sticking botox in their lips…head and arse…looking absolutely alien to real human beings…looking like a Craig David Bo Selecta mask…when they were already beautiful in the first place…when they were already amazing individual women without it all?

How many of them painting clown faces on themselves to hide from the real world…obsessing about every inch of their body…young…old…and inbetween?

Kerry from down the road…who spends every week partying and drinking and can’t bare to look at her face without makeup on…is qualified now in only 2 weeks to do botox on 18 year kids and naive impressionable young women!

They can get it done down their local shopping centre now…after the nails.

Sounds like a really responsible society we are living in?

Women of every demographic keep popping up with botoxed this and changed that…it’s the current rage…each to their own…do you…but…I heavily question how many physically and psychologically…genuinely needed it…and should have had it done?

How many you think it really solved their problem they had with…or within themselves?

How many you realllly think it put on a positive path of mental health and self discovery?

How many young 16-18 year old lads jabbing steroids and buying pointless supplements because they aren’t big enough…hard enough…swoll enough…man enough…ripped enough…sexy enough?

Jimmy from down the street who spends his weekend coked up…shagging birds and wanting bigger biceps to make him look harder…is giving these kids and impressionable young men…hormones and hormone advice.

How many men in general jabbing steroids and even botox in themselves now?

How many everyday men and women are tricked into thinking they are social media models and celebrities now…inviting thousands of random people into a fake glossed over…premeditated life…because they are inhibited by a fake…glossed over…premeditated medium?

How many going under having to keep up that facade..forever?

How many young 10/11 year old kids now obsessing about how they look…their weight…their bodies…their social status and aesthetic image…instead of playing outside…kicking balls…riding bikes…getting muddy and dancing under the street lights?

11 year old kids I meet nowadays all have grown folk problems…it’s fuckin crazy…12 year old girls in make up wearing clothes they see from social representations that they don’t even realise are sexualised and provocative.

Parents unable to say or do anything because they don’t want their kid to be the odd one out…to get bullied…or…the parents are part of it themselves!

How many people hate their jobs…their lives and their existence…all because they are constantly told they are boring and mundane if they aren’t a celebrity…rock star…movie star…sports star…model…sex symbol…or rich?

How many people choose vanity over health…over life?

Where you think all this type of stuff comes from?

It comes from a society deluded enough to allow aesthetics…fashion and this glitterati bodybuilding/cosmetic/celebrity propaganda to prevail.

I’ve met more than I haven’t…I’ve had it chew me up and I was very close to starting steroids…I was right in the thick of it…I don’t do things in halves.

Nobody is safe unless you put the effort in to consciously staying away from it all.

Its designed to be that way.

It’s clever because there is no hiding from the fact that once they have you…they have you…and your hooked…in the cycle…constantly searching…constantly buying…and buying into.

As I said before…they attack our insecurities and our minds ability to malfunction…it isn’t about sex…it’s about consumers…profit…at any cost…win.

The game…is the game.

Take a sit back…right now…take 5 minutes…take 10…take a day…take a week…take a month.

Try to quantify the amount of products…services…items…and goods that are available for us to buy right this second.

Try to quantify…how many of those are marketed to us during the period we are awake…how many they want us…need us to buy…have.

Try to quantify how many things we have bought…how many things the people we know have bought…why we bought them…and wanted to buy them.

Try to quantify how many things society constantly wishes they could buy right now…and the level of persuasion…manipulation…sales tactics…and psychology used when questioning why.

You couldn’t…I couldn’t.

Well…what that all translates to in the end…is…

I’m too fat…too skinny…not fat enough…not skinny enough…too in shape…not in shape enough…not perfect enough…not pretty enough…not sexy enough…not tanned enough …too tanned…boring…not good enough…wrong style…had the right style…but the styles moved on…so now you actually…aren’t in style anymore…so you should hang your head in shame…hairs wrong…it’s too curly…too straight…too long…too short…it’s the wrong colour…colour doesn’t suit u…you’re using the wrong products…nails are wrong…skins wrong… lips wrong …ears wrong…teeth wrong…eyebrows wrong…eyelashes wrong…eyes wrong…nose wrong…shoes wrong…socks wrong… underwear wrong…pants wrong…tops wrong…coats wrong…bags wrong….need…better……need to change the makeup…abs…bum.. legs… hips…tits…arms…neck…chin…smile…cars not good enough…house isn’t big enough…jobs not good enough…don’t earn enough…don’t eat at the right places…don’t drink at the right places…aren’t seen at the right places…WOW…i could literally keep going on…and on.

I’m going to leave it there…as I could genuinely still be writing in a years time and not have even scratched the surface of what I know…what I’ve seen and what I’ve experienced.

Think to yourself…did I just write over 7000 words on this…very easily…because I know nothing about it?

It’s funny…I’ll have certain people reading this probably pissed off because I’ve hit a nerve…because i’m in the deepest part of the crevices of their mind right now…like I know them.

They will resent me…and this post…but a couple years down the line they’ll end up searching for my clinic…searching for me…asking for my help and I’ll welcome them with open arms.

We will learn off each other.

If you disagree with me on this…no matter how professional you are…that’s ok with me…I respect that and I honestly respect you…we can still get along.

All I ask is that if you want to disagree…or you want to debate what I say…then let’s do it.

Let’s do it…but it needs to be done publicly…in front of an audience or live in some manner…in real time…for the people to see and hear us talk and interact as humans.

This is a topic I know more people need to understand and I already know there isn’t a single person in the world that could actually fully discredit my points…as I’ve lived this for too long…too many times…to be so wrong.

2…plus…2…makes…4.

I have the access to many platforms and stages to talk on and can provide you crystal clear microphones to speak and get your point of view across.

I am prepared to sit there in complete silence allowing you to talk…I will listen to every single last one of your points…in full…making notes on every single one and on the rarity that you changed my opinion…I would admit being wrong to the entire audience…apologising sincerely to both you and them.

Bottled up resentment gets us nowhere though…helps nobody…listening…talking…communicating…does.

To my colleagues and fellow professionals…

I love and respect you all…I can’t do it on my own…and I don’t have all of the answers…which is why I ask for your solidarity in standing up against these problems we are currently facing in body and mind.

If any of you don’t like this type of realism and honesty in the professional world…if it offends you…and you think it’s unprofessional…or it treads on your toes…exposing a lack of soul or purity…you still have a friend in me…although please…do me a huge…gigantic…monumental…massive favour…

Pull your head out your arse?

It’s our jobs to stop this…and only people in our positions that get to see what goes on behind closed doors…can do it.

That’s the reason we can’t seem to help people in this day and age…because we spend more time faffing about on employment rules…red tape…and socially prescribed/invented conventions and unrealistic representationsthan we do being actual…real…human…beings.

Don’t let the body and mind die…it’s all we really have.
