Posted February 05, 2018 07:58:33When I was a teenager, my father would get me out of the car and drive me to a park where we’d sit down and listen to music.
There would be a drum machine, and then a girl would play and the beat would continue, playing out from the end of the song.
Then my father said, ‘You know what?
I don’t care if you have to be in the car anymore.
You’re not going to die of boredom anymore, are you?’
I loved that song.
I would never go out and buy a new pair of jeans.
I never even looked at a pair.
It was just me sitting in the park, listening to music, and that’s how I got to where I am today.
It’s all about getting out of your head and into the real world.
I’d always loved the idea of going to the gym, because I was the only person in the world who would.
But I also had a huge fear of running, and the fear of getting hurt in a race.
I would just stand on the side of the road, watch the runners.
I’d feel like, Oh God, what if I fall?
How am I going to be able to walk home?
So that’s what I did: I would run as fast as I could.
I loved running.
I used to get really depressed when I was in my 20s, but now I have a good sense of humour.
I was at the end, but I was still doing the same things I was doing at 20.
I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I think I need to be a bit better at maintaining my self-worth.
I’m constantly worrying about how I’m doing, and how I look.
It just feels like it’s always something that’s bothering me, and it’s something that I’m not able to shake.
But the biggest thing for me is getting the most out of my life.
