Twenty years of being an athlete made life fun, but when it came time for a transition to the “real world” it was a struggle. On the outside I looked fine, but I spent a lot of time internally comparing myself to others in a world where social media makes it easy to “look” like you have life figured out. I felt I did not measure up. If I can overcome challenges, so can you. I am not anymore special that then next person, I just wouldn’t let it hold me down. No one should.
