My friend, Chris, was having problems with his hip. It had been hurting for awhile and he was so worried about it that he was starting to avoid exercise. His pain had actually gotten so bad that it could be mistaken for the presence of life. The thought of getting out of it was terrifying, and a part of him was actually terrified that he was going to die.
This is a common fear, and many people are afraid to try something new and risk their health. Chris had a friend, Ben, who was a bit more proactive in his attitude about his situation. Ben had been working out in the gym for a while and was finally getting into the habit of taking his breaks. Ben was an incredible athlete who would go for long walks and ride the stationary bike for hours. Chris had no interest in that, so he asked Ben to help him train.
Ben had been training for a long time, and he was in great shape. He was still a bit hesitant at first, but once he really got into it, Chris was right there with him. Chris’s training routine was brutal, but also very effective at getting an enormous amount of muscle mass. In fact, he was able to build muscle mass to the point that he was able to drop his bodyweight down to 190 pounds.
Chris is a muscular man, but he has to work to get his body weight down. If the bodyweight were not the issue, Chris would have never been able to accomplish his goal of dropping down to 190 pounds (or even 200 pounds). Chris is a very physically fit man, but he needs to work out the muscle mass issue. The muscle mass is what allows him to ride the bike for hours.
At the same time that Chris is working out the muscle mass issue, he is also working out his emotional issues. Chris is a very positive person with a good heart. He has a loving wife and two kids. However, his wife is a bitch, and he is beginning to resent her. Chris is very protective of his wife, but he has to work at not resenting her.
Chris has been suffering from an eating disorder, and he feels like he’s constantly being judged. He’s constantly told he is bad at everything, is a slob, and can’t even exercise enough to look good in a bathing suit. Chris’s eating disorder has been going on for a long time, but it seems like it’s only recently that he’s developed a really bad habit. He’s always felt like he has to hide from his wife.
Chris has the habit of hiding from his wife and his daughter, but the girl is really in charge of him. She doesnt like it when he yells or grumbles. She says hes a good guy, its just when he tries to talk to her hes always the ‘bad guy’ and its really just because she doesnt like him. Chris doesnt remember the last time his daughter was in the same room, but shes always been a little moody and has a tendency to make her mother mad.
This is not an exaggeration. I mean, that is basically what shes been saying about you and your behavior, but it’s her daughter that keeps the two of you apart.
Its not that Chris is actually angry with her, or that Chris doesnt like him, it’s just that its obvious to anyone who’s watched him talk to her that shes on the verge of leaving him. I was even thinking, “you dont have to like her, you just have to understand her.” It’s very simple. She doesnt like Chris because shes angry with him, and thats not really a difficult concept for Chris to accept.
Chris is a good guy, but he doesnt understand Chris. Because what Chris doesnt understand is that he doesnt understand Chris. And that is what Chris has to accept, or he really doesnt have a chance to make it work.
