Approximately 10 days ago, I began a journey of self-progression. On that day, I forfeited masturbation. This change was accompanied by another drastic change of me. I have always had a tendency to become angry in an implosive way over trivial things that are of no real consequence in the grand scheme of things. On that same day, I vowed to do everything in my power to change myself, to work on managing my implosive anger... This led me to the path of being masturbation-less. A couple of my closest friends have been very supportive of me in these trying times. Together we have made a pact to better ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Together, we have taken up rigorous exercising and weightlifting. Though it has only been 10 days, I have certainly sensed a tremendous change in me. I look forward to the challenges I will face in this endeavor, for they will only make me stronger upon overcoming them.
