Finally got around to finishing my second "magnum opus" of my site, my "How I beat depression and how you can too" article + vid:

Full Article:
How I Beat Depression & Learned to be an Optimist (My Story)


Audiobook version:



That was pretty fucking dark to write, but also cathartic. Holy shit I'd forgotten how far I've come. (Everything in that article happened before I found GoodLookingLoser).

Hope you guys get something out of it.

Thanks man, appreciate it. It was pretty... interesting... to write. Brought up a lot of old feelings I'd long since forgotten.

I'm so impressed how supportive your parents where (well eventually) they really love you.

Man your journey is so inspirational in general. You're kicking my ass so hard, as a role model / showing what's possible.

Like Chris was always kind of a cool dude, Scotty was always a scumbug, Derick was just naturally alpha and even bad idea bear just seemed like he was a natural.

You were a fat, depressed, intellectual, ginger in Australia, and here I am telling myself I'm too nerdy to ever succeed.

Its also just showing me that each person who completes this journey, always brings something new with them, and that there is no "mould".

There are many things you can provide and teach which just aren't in the perview of GLL or the other guys. Fuck, it kind of pisses me off for you to prove all my doubts completely wrong!

But it's still so awesome. Little disappointed you'll never have a son, that kid would be a slayer 8-)

Yeah and you've only seen my story - some of my coaching clients started with just as many (maybe even more) problems than me and are now kicking ass. I truly believe everyone can succeed but ONLY IF they a) work for it and b) never quit.
