Fat Ass

3 years ago, I was a regular gym rat in Bukit Gombak gym. I went there almost everyday, and you’d probably see me running like a mad dog on the treadmill. You’d probably notice that my muscles were more defined, and when I smile, you’d probably wish you have my jawline.

3 years ago, a 14 year old boy became a regular in Bukit Gombak gym and because we always bumped into each other, he’d usually approached me to assist him with lifting of some weights, and once in a while attempted to strike conversations by asking me the same question kinda questions like “ Abang, how long have you trained?” or “How many times do you work out per week?”

3 years after that, that same boy saw me again in Bukit Gombak gym, and his first question was “Abang, what happened to you? LAST TIME you have a nice body!”

3 years ago, I had the motivation to push myself over the limits in physical fitness. I hit the club every weekend. I love the way they looked at my body. That was who I was back then. And the number oif calories I burnt on the dance floor, it helped to keep me in shape.

In conclusion, maybe I should start hitting the club again…

in•se•cu•ri•ty = [in-si-kyoo r-i-tee]
–noun, plural -ties.
-lack of confidence or assurance; self-doubt: He is plagued byinsecurity.

Insecurity is a bitch, personified. I used to get turned off by other halves who are insecure. I always think to myself: Why the fuck are you so insecure? Have I not be faithful enough? What? Are you blind? Can’t you see that I love you more than anything else?

Instead, I should have thought: Is there anything I could have done to make him/ her less insecure? What is the cause of the mistrust in the first place?

Now I am infected by the insecurity fever. Now I see the flipside of the coin. I have never been insecure. Probably the tide has changed. I am not in my peak now. Not smart. Not good looking. Nothing. Thus, am always afraid of losing out. Am always afraid of being put down. Am always afraid of myself…. Enough said.
