    Confessions from a Christian Guy, I Struggle Too

    Did you see today’s latest trending video? The one about the weightlifter who almost lost his arms because he wanted to be bigger?

    No?

    Well, THIS one…

    It’s pretty shocking when you see it. This guy nearly lost his arms due to his obsession with getting bigger and his desire to look like someone else. After a while, it made him depressed and left him feeling alone and even suicidal. This is an extreme case of what many of us, yes us, struggle with as human beings. We compare ourselves to others. We try our best to look, speak and talk like someone else. But in the end, we’re left feeling inadequate. We talk about this issue quite a bit on Project Inspired because it’s something that we all deal with, every day. And what you may not realize is that guys struggle with it just as much as girls do. We compare ourselves to other guys at the gym, at school, heck, even at church.

    It will never stop. 

    It NEEDS to stop.

    It CAN stop.

    However, the problem is that society tells us guys that this is a women’s issue. But, I’m here to say that we struggle with this as well. We’re just not as open about it because we don’t want to come across as weak. And that’s part of the problem. Our culture says that men are to be strong and emotionless. But I ask, why can’t we be both strong and in touch with our emotions? What if a guy wants to cry because he struggles with the way his body looks? Why is it that we have to feel ashamed and hide in embarrassment?

    We’re human too, though. We have emotions. We have feelings.

    So, when you girls think you’re the only ones who struggle with how you look, remember that guys do too. The video above is shocking, because it’s extreme. However, this is just one of the millions of guys that struggles with his image. But it’s important to remember that all of us are loved by a God that designed us in His likeness. That means, I’m perfectly made. My flaws are not what define me. My identity in Christ defines me.

    With that being said, I too, am working on loving myself more.

    Because when we love ourselves more, we can take that love and love others with it. If we don’t think highly of ourselves, then it reflects in how we treat those around us. And not being able to love others, because we can’t love ourselves, just seems like a waste.
