We all workout and carry on our lives within a certain community. I recently had to make a big move in my life and lost all community and friends that I had. I had to start over ultimately. Starting over in social areas wasn't that difficult for me but the most difficult thing was to find a community that supported my lifting and dieting habits, which as a result, suffered greatly after my move.
We tend to think that we are in this game for ourselves...but when no one is watching, will you keep going? It took me a long time to find the value of being strong and in shape for the sole purpose of making myself happy when I lost my community. What are the communities like where you guys are lifting? Whatever they are...appreciate them because THEY keep you going more than you yourself does.
