Just Married Gabi Garcia Reveals Struggle With Depression Prior To Last Rizin Bout

 

 

Gabi Garcia has had a widely recorded tumultuous relationship with her mma career. The bjj giant has struggled to find credible opponents and has been an object of mockery for many due to Rizin repeatedly booking her against aged former pro wrestlers.

 But through it all it’s been a struggle. Garcia revealed:

Whoever accompanies me knows that in the last year I have had difficult times. I went through health problems and more than that, I got my head tired and bad. I am not ashamed to say that I went through moments that I thought I would not endure, I was coming into a depression, there is nothing to do with the others charging, but I was not well with myself. Health, head, I needed to seek strength where I did not have it, I deleted myself in the few people who are by my side and I see that they are the real ones, I cried for homesickness, to think if my choices were right.

Normal, after all I’m not iron, I spent 11 years of my life without rest and overcoming many stones, accusations that I was acquitted but when it happens hurt, I always came back stronger, but I was losing the fight to my head.
After months I forced my mind to train and try to forget my pain.
I can say there is no magic formula, there is nothing stronger than our mind, it knocks us down or brings us to the top.
It took bad moments to see that the most important thing is not what people think of us or what they think is true, the most important thing is to find the mistakes and learn from them.
I’m loving myself more than ever, getting better every day, one more fight.
I’m ready to go back

Mais um dia ✅ #saturdaytraining Estou sumida aqui do instagram, postando pouco meus treinos pois precisava cuidar um pouco de mim. Quem me acompanha sabe que no ultimo ano eu passei momentos difíceis. Passei problemas de saúde e mais que isso, fiquei com minha cabeça cansada e ruim. Não tenho vergonha de contar que passei por momentos que eu achei que não ia suportar, estava chegando em uma depressão, nada tem haver com a cobrança dos outros, porém eu não estava bem comigo mesmo. Saúde, cabeça, precisei buscar forças onde não tinha, me apaguei nas poucas pessoas que estão ao meu lado e que vejo que são as de verdade, chorei por saudade da família, de pensar se minhas escolhas foram certas. Normal, afinal eu não sou de ferro, passei 11 anos da minha vida sem descanso e superando muitas pedradas, acusações que fui absolvida porém quando acontece machucam,sempre voltava mais forte, porém eu estava perdendo a luta pra minha cabeça. Depois de meses voltei a obrigar minha mente a treinar e tentar esquecer minhas dores. Posso dizer que não existe fórmula mágica, não existe nada mais forte que nossa mente, ela nos derruba ou nos leva ao topo. Foi preciso momentos ruins para ver que o mais importante não é aquilo que as pessoas pensam de nós ou aquilo que elas julgam ser verdade, o mais importante é encontrar os erros e aprender com eles. Estou me amando mais que nunca, melhorando a cada dia, mais uma luta. Estou pronta para voltar 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻 #gabigarcia #teamgabigarcia #bjj #jiujitsu #mma #bjj #rizinff #rizin2018
