Common Sense or Rapper?
In my world, I expect that people carry some type of logic in their thought process. Cause and effect.. if you do this, that will happen. My job is to guide you, teach you how to empower yourself to reach your goals. Logic would seem that if you took care of your body your body would take care of you. You provide your vessel with proper fuel and learned to burn the fuel optimally you would attain your goals. Your body would change.
But not if you are on your cell phone during class.
Not if you workout 2-3 times a week and those times are half-assed.
Not if you eat everything and then sit on your couch most of the time
Oh, your body isn’t changing? Yea it’s MY fault.
Now we are talking about Robert Bryson Hall….stage name: Logic. A visionary, an inspiration, an artist, a man. A young man who inspires through his transparency in both his story and his life.
This young man is not only insanely talented but he has also opened the door on a taboo subject. A condition that cripples so many of us: Anxiety and Depression. See you can say you get it. But until you GET it its impossible to GET.
People love to judge and give advice on how to manage a disorder they don’t suffer from …… they don’t GET it.
When you think of someone who suffers from anxiety or depression you may think of the high strung dude who talks fast and has a short fuse. Or maybe the woman who refuses to leave her house because believes that she doesn’t look good enough or just isn’t enough to simply be a part of.
“They never knew my struggle. Rose above the rubble. Rather live inside the bubble than go through the trouble”
Never would you think it was the person who inspires you to get out of bed in the morning. The person who seems so confident in not only themselves but in you. The one who pushes you to be your best. The talented rapper, the charismatic musician, the comedian or maybe your cycle or yoga instructor.
See these people we look up to or revere are “wired” a certain way. The most creative carry around some type of thought process or method that makes them successful.
The same thing that drives them to be amazing is debilitating. They want to help others HURTS them. They give all that they have to make a connection and to reach you even when not asked. It’s a blessing and a curse. They give freely because they want to be heard, felt, seen…
Oof …all of the above should read we, not they, for I too am wired differently.
Personally, I never want people to feel the pain that I have. I want everyone to feel loved and whole. Its impossible to describe but if you know you know and if you don’t, be thankful.
I attempt to give something of me to my students every time I teach a class which is between 20-25 per week. I try to draw out that thing, the reason you showed up because I believe you want more for yourself than what you have.
Sadly most of the time I miss the mark.
Not everyone wants to be a superstar some people really just want to say they went to the gym.
And that’s when the anxiety turns to depression for me. I feel like I failed. Myself. My students.
Not everyone wants to change their lives. They actually want to be stuck and blame someone else for it.
Funny thing is, I will forever try to pull them out only for them to pull me in…. is that healthy? No. and not very logical.
“I am me. I am a man, I am a sinner. But understand aren’t we all? So when it comes to passing judgment I don’t think you are the one to make the call
Heaven wanna cast me out for being me
I know there are others like me that’ll break the fall
I know you hate motherfuckers just can’t relate at all
If I’m the first one in line that’s fine I’ll take it all
Well Logic, he gon’ let them know. I ain’t perfect but I’m worth it, I’m alive, I deserve it. I been praying, I ain’t playing I don’t think you hear the words I’m saying I don’t think you know the weight on my shoulders that gets heavier as I get older…
Calling anybody calling anybody can you hear me?
I pray that you hear me I pray that you hear me”
Thank you Logic for telling your story and inspiring others to do the same…
Much love AK
