From the earliest age that I remember being 4 years old, I have talked about sports in some compacity. Having 2 older brothers that were 10 years older than I was I atteneded all their sporting events and was just in love, a big part of that came from me wanting to be like my older brothers, which most people do.
The Boston Red Sox, the most recent World Series Champions, it wasn’t always this way, winning titles in 2013, 2007, 2004… Before the win in 2004, Red Sox went 86 years without a world series, its cliché to say the reason they never won was because Babe Ruth possibly the most famous baseball player ever, put a curse on this team letting the Red Sox know if you sell me to the Yankees, you will never win another World Series again, because before selling Ruth, the red Sox won 5 of the first 15 world series more than any other team.
In sports, we always question who the GOAT is (Greatest of All Time) especially in the NBA it has come down to two players Michael Jordan vs LeBron James. I’m personally on the side that LeBron is the greatest of all time.
LeBron has been dominating basketball since high school, being the most talked about high school athlete ever, even being on the cover of sports illustrated. Coming out of St. Vincent-St Mary in Cleveland Ohio, LeBron being the phenom he was, the NBA allowed LeBron to be drafted straight out of high school as an 18 year old.
No matter what you are doing in life, always asking for help is the best answer. If you are playing sports, working, in school, or even going through mental illness. Being able to talk to someone about what you are going through, is a huge factor.
Having to bottle up what you are dealing with is terrible for us, as it causes us more stress & over-thinking, we often neglect how we are feeling because we’re too busy doing everything yourself. Make time for self-care, five minutes before bed, going for a run, whatever it takes. It will help clear your mind and allow the freedom to decompress.
