Falling away of barriers and old identificatione

When who you have identified with is no longer, you have to search for a new way to see yourself, to create yourself anew.

It was difficult for me to be in an environment where I was no longer the athlete, the guy on the team, the football player. My identity was shaken, I felt deep depression and despair. The way people treated me was different, my whole environment was different, I felt accutely aware that how people treated me previously had nothing to do with who or what I was, and everything to do with who they thought I was.

So at this point, I had truly walked away, I had turned down several invitations to re-join the team. I had severed a large part of who I was, onceand for all.
