    This coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on my mind and body. I read endgame and it helped me out of my depression and I felt like I was at the top of the world in 2019.

    Later, COViD happened while I was taking college courses and my life was put on hold. I couldn’t get out of the house to the office, the gym, the  library, the movies, nor travel anywhere and make new connections. So here’s what happened:

    1- I gained 20 pounds and I lost all my muscle gained.

    2-I failed most of my classes this past year and I have to retake them…8 grand down the toilet.

    3- My job is on the verge of barely surviving and it helped me realize that my boss is a clown and an exploiter. I’m quitting as soon as I can.

    4- I dated a girl all throughout the pandemic and then I broke her heart because I didn’t feel ready for marriage and I still wanted to travel and get financially stable. Karma got me back.

    5- I’m balding.

    I don’t know what to do. I understand that suffering is optional but all of this has made my life a hell and I would like to hear from this amazing community that I have known about since pre-COViD but I’ve been afraid to ask because I feel weak, out of touch with myself, broke, and single.

    I think a lot of people went through similar trails and tribulations.

    I gained 30 lbs. I was hitting new personal bests – 420 deadlift, 320, bench, etc. Like myself and others, you can get back in the gym. I’ve been in the gym ever since they opened. My abs disappeared and when I started my yoga practice again, I felt fat rolls when I performed certain poses.

    My laptop broke. I lost over 100 pages to a book and about 30 to another. I’ve got over 100 pages to my basketball novel now.

    Luckily I got fired from my job. My boss dislike me and treated me badly after talking to upper management about me. I was able to use that time to write.

    I’m sorry you weren’t ready to settle down and your balding situation. Sorry about the $8,000.00. too. Can you get a refund due to the pandemic?

    I would say stay positive and move forward and take action. It seems like you have barriers in your way that you’re staring at rather than tackle. If you’ve gotten far in terms of accomplishment, look at it as a set back.  Best wishes.

    Thank you so much Anthony. I guess I’m just not on the position I wanna be in life but I know I will succeed and grow as a person.

    In America the University system is a joke, so I’m not getting my refund sadly but it’s okay since I can make them again and I’m still young and optimistic. I’m sorry about your book, I hope you can remember most of it and just try to write it again.

    I will have the comeback of the Century, 2021 ain’t got shit on me!!

    Thank you again, Anthony. I will update and show my progress, and if you need someone to read your book, I will gladly do it.

    Let’s own 2021,

    I’d suggest buying the 4 – Hour Body by Timothy Ferris; it has a lot of hacks so you can get increase your muscle mass and shed pounds and fat more efficiently. A lot of great information inside.
