How SwoopTheWorld Brought a Reader Out of Depression
The title of this article gives SwoopTheWorld all the credit for this, but really the credit goes to our reader who sent us this letter. He was depressed before finding our website and, instead of just reading, he did what really takes balls and he took action to make it a part of his life.
Read his letter and see how he used Swoop teachings to break free of his depression:
Dear Fisto, 20Nation, THC,
Thank you for what you have done to me.
8 months ago, I was a depressed 24 year old guy living at his parents place in Italy, in a small village where everyone knows everyone. I was into a dry-spell from sex, after me and my girlfriend had broken up our 1.5 year relationship. I discovered in that same period that she had cheated on me, many times. I will not get into the details of the depression I suffered back then, be it enough to say that when lying in my bed in that room still filled with my teenage stuff, I felt completely castrated, deprived of my mascolinity.So one night, I was roaming the web like always, until I stumbled upon your blog. I started reading. It would be a lie to say that it gave me an “enlightment”. It rather fostered gradual awakening. I devoured your posts, craving for adventure, for exploration, sex, “game” with women and all those things that create that adrenaline blend you describe in your posts sometimes. I probably read “10 invalid reasons why you are not travelling the world” 5 or 6 times. The decision was taken.
I’m writing this letter from Maastricht, Netherlands. I moved here 6 months ago. I am studying for my Master in Intl business, working in a company I founded with few partners and, yes, fucking like a mink. During this time I have been a voracious reader on the “gaming” topic, body language, PUA techniques and the like, and this was also thanks to you guys.
I wanted to keep this letter very short to make it readable in a typical 5 minutes commute, but there would be much more to share about the contribution I received from your blog during my growth. Now I want to go a step forward. My accomplishments are just ok comparing to the the standards I want to achieve. My mind is weathered with questions like: what do I do after this period is over? how will I look for new adventures? will I find another similar opportunity?
There is nothing I want more in my life than keep up with this lifestyle. at the same time I realized I wouldn’t give it up for any girl, or job, no matter how awesome that would be. I want to stay an adventurer. So ultimately my question is, how do you guys keep it up? and more importantly, how do you make this FINANCIALLY feasible when hopping from one place to another?
Thank you, for everything.
Traveling Swoop style changed my life as well
Taking action is what makes you successful in life
