This is probably the realist quote I've ever seen.
I use to fear confrontation.
I used to fear being uncomfortable
Growing up I was always insecure about my body. Never liked taking my shirt off. Being skinny and tall, I always wanted that body builder physique when I was growing up. Now I've realised how much of a blessing it is to be tall and slim, especially for bjj. Bjj has made my body much stronger, flexible and I'm getting bigger so I'm very comfortable with that insecurity I once had. It's made me realise what my body is truly capable of and what I can potentially do to another grown man. Never thought I would be able to do any of this shit.
