First of all I wanna send a shoutout to those who’ve been supporting the movement. From the early gang to the recent recruits. But I wanted to take this opportunity to address the inconsistency in our output since it’s conception.
The long and short of it all is that I – like many people – have been copping with an anxiety issue that has plagued my life for as long as I can remember, and a large proportion of it – of late – has been aggravated by habitual drug use – namely Cannabis. Although it was a drug of leisure, it became a debilitating habit that severely and adversely affected my personal and professional life.
Since giving up the smoking and seeking Therapy I’m now at a point where I can start to dedicate the required commitment to the cause that I am deeply passionate about.
We are not all the same and I’m not here to shit on cannabis use; I still understand the broader health benefits of the drug and it’s positive social attributes, but for some of us – particularly those with anxiety of a social nature – it can be incredibly debilitating when used habitually.
I am in know way out of the woods yet. But in seeking therapy and changing my lifestyle I now feel ready to commit to the necessary tasks to realise a vision.
None of us are perfect, and a lot of us need help. And as a man, it took a lot to admit that. So, I’m sharing this not only to reassure the people who follow WATSON ROSE that it aint over – and you should expect more consistent output. But to more importantly be another man willing to bare his wounds and inspire other people (men in particular) to assess their lives and allow themselves to be vulnerable enough to go through the necessary steps to being happier, healthier and more productive people. There’s no shame in admitting you have problems. But to hide them and not get the help you need IS a shame.
Thank you to everyone who’s shown support for me personally over this recent period and to all who have supported the website itself. #RESPEKANLOVE🙏🏾❤️
