Hi again, everyone. How are you? I am well.
Last week, I posted “You’re Not the Lone Wolf, Part 1,” sharing notes from people happy to hear Urban Meyer say he’s not the lone wolf when it comes to mental health problems, because that showed them that they are not lone wolves, either.
So let’s jump right into Part 2.
Thank you to Urban Meyer for a generously candid look into his mental and spiritual growth.
As we all journey into becoming who we are, it’s comforting to see the common traits when learning about mind and spirit.
Really hit home with me in the circumstances I’m facing in my life.
I not only enjoyed it because I am an avid Ohio State fan, but because I went through something similar and still sometimes struggle with anxiety and it’s good to know that I am not the only one. What your article talks about is really true on how you feel like you should be able to take care of it and that you’re weak for feeling the way that you do. Reading this made me feel not so alone and I just want to thank you for taking the time to talk about an issue that most people do not walk to talk about.
I am a 22 year veteran of the U.S Army and a huge Ohio State fan. Your article spoke to me on so many levels and is exactly what I needed to read today.
I have struggled myself with compulsion, anxiety, and depression for years and have just recently began an extensive counseling program to help me with these issues.
Today was legitimately one of my harder days and I was unbelievably comforted in learning that one of my idols used similar tools to defeat the same demons.
I have found so much hope in reading this and am looking forward to educating myself on some of the tools and professional works mentioned in thus article.
If given the opportunity please thank Coach Meyer for not only normalizing my fears but for helping me to recognize that I share those gifts with such an inspirational man.
More coming next week.
