How do you guys, whether you’re new to this or are veterans to PE, deal with the crushing frustration of not making good gains?
I’ve been at it for 5 months now, with slight gains. Is the fact that I got even slight gains a good enough reason to keep going? It seems like such a painfully slow process…while to others, it seems like a breeze. Makes me wonder what it is I’m doing wrong. My girlfriend hasn’t noticed anything yet, which may be a good thing, since I won’t have to explain myself…yet.
I’m willing to put in the work, and I’ve gone this far… but damn it’s fucking frustrating. How do you guys deal with the crippling depression and self-hate, if any?
