Suffering, Adversity, and Controversy

Though many may not know this by looking at me, I like to workout. I often say that the gym is the only place I feel like I can turn my brain off and just lift heavy things. I am not the best athlete. It is often a long hard slog, but for the hour that I am in the gym, I enjoy it. Usually, as the day moves on, I find that my muscles are sore and I feel the repercussions of having had a hard workout, yet I go back the next day to do it again. During the workouts I often want to quit, yet it is the encouragement of those around me and the knowledge of the end goal that keeps me going.
