For the past few days, when I strap on my Roces, its not the same nemre. Maybe its because of all the stress that's going on in my life. My job gives me hours once every few months, no money in my pockets, my mom is kicking me out on my bday in 2mnths, not being able 2 see my bf all the time, best friend isn't even my best friend nemre. The stress in my life is stopping my focus of me blading n pulling off tricks. When I use 2 strap on my skates, I felt like I could pull off nething, nothing could stop me. Now when I put em on, nothing. Depression hits. I don't get that rush anymore. And it doesn't help that I skate alone. All the time. Don't get me wrong, I'm not losing love 4 the sport. Its just hard for me 2 focus with everything that's going on in my life. I decide 2 watch vids of my favorite skater Julian Bah to get some inspiration. And it helped so much. But when I put on my skates, my legs wont let me do what I want 2. Guess I need mroe inspiration. I need relief.

I know how you feel, hun...

I got major stress at work, too. That & stress at my apartment with the landlady got me sooo zoned out. I started blading 6 weeks ago, but a blow to the head while on the street slowed me down considerably. Now I'm feeling super low and cautious when I strap in. My legs have just disobeyed me at every turn & I'm struggling to get focused. I'm now thinking that if I wanna get better, it is up to me. Same with you, girl. Don't let anyone steal your shine. Despite all the probs, you are alive and you got your blades. Just take it slow (but not as slow as me!). You fight through it hun...we're here for you! :D

it sounds like u need a blunt!(ha ha). but on a serious note i feel what ya saying i have alot of stress in my life and trying to make time for friends who don't skate, it's hard. but i look at skating as my stress reliver, when ur skating don't think about what's going on in your life but think about what you are doing. Not only will ur skating become better but it will also become your time to clear your head. remember your not the only blader skating by yourself

you know what the problem with us is?the problem is that we take ourselves and life too serious...i mean it is serius but not as much as we think it is....personally i get stressed up with basically any silly thing ...and that gets me down really bad some times....but as the brotha said...rolling is the only relief from my strees...the only way to get me going....so keep on rolling girl

Keep goin at it gal, is only for now. Personally I skate cus its the only time I'm not stressed, I smoke weed to chill but I skate to forget. When I rollin, I never wanna stop, usually last one outta the park. While I enjoy skatin with my mates, at the end of the day I'm skatin for me n me only. My mates all work day jobs n I'm on permanent nites so mon - thurs, I'm a loner (tho I've a wood pushin friend who's quite happy to join me at 5 am for a roll if I want company) Some nites just want my mp3z n me n nobody else around to distract or annoy me, other nites I find myself wishin the lads were out too. All in all gal, dont give up! Dont let life get ya down. A few years ago some of us were takin life way too seriously so we all decided to set up the "nat seerias posse" (phonetic), just a bunch of idiots who live stressful lives who decided to have at least one night of stupidity every week (usually at my place). Worked wonders n now 3 of us roll together regularly. I dunno, worked for us. Either way good luck n stick with it gal. peace!

just relax when your skating, do it to relax for a while and not to stick sticks. Maybe it'll help. Then
once your relaxed again and things are lookin up then sk8 to stick tricks. Not sayin dont try tricks, but maybe it will get a little easire if u do it just to have fun for a while. Keep workin at it, keep going, and I'm sure your going toget it!!! (:
good luck!

Yeah..*it gets hard when you got so much going on. Ride hard girl. My divorce messed my head all up, not to mention pocket book. Depression is only another word for gotta make another impression. I'm hitting the books as well. Crazy. I'm just deciding to flip the script and start skating again. I ain't sponsored or nothin; was going to roll down that route after being on tour awhile back. Sport started slowing down though. Stay-up..Peace
