I am happy to leave. If this is what GETBIG has become, I will gladly venture of into the sunset. truth be told, I have felt a strong compulsion to move on for quite some time. I have a long history with bodybuilding, first picking up the weights over 25 years ago. I loved it, collected all the magazines and came close to competing as a young man but chickened out at the last moment. I remember as a teen I got in fights with workmates defending bodybuilding when they all called it for queers and losers. I eventually dropped any desire to compete, but just loved working out in general, feeling strong and healthy. This obsession culminated with me opening a small gym but shortly after giving up the dream when I realised it wasn't what I thought it was. Since then I have turned 40, I have seen many unpleasant truths and cold facts about life. I no longer sheepishly play along with the crowd and am proud of my ability to stand firm in the face of hostile opposition.
Sadly, the members here at getbig have become weaker or I have simply become too strong for them to argue against. Having a majority vote me of this site gives me great comfort, knowing that even the infamous Getbiggers couldn't tolerate being manhandled verbally. If anything, it is a sign that I have outgrown getbig and I have accomplished a level of insight that is too painful for most to endure. I see those who gleefully vote me off as admitting defeat, and yet I wasn't even trying to conquer.
I shall finish with some words from a great man.
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
Calm down and stay - don't be a queen.
