Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hey, My name is Keith Carroll and I’m 17 from Ireland. I’m a fairly introverted person who finds passion in some abstract things like Rubik’s cubes and rap/hip-hop music( not looked good upon in Ireland). For about 4-5 years now I’ve been on a self improvement journey to try and fight some of the demons that haunt me from my past.
What Inspires You Every day? : Fear of being what I once was. When I was 12 I weighed 15 stone (210 pounds) and right now I weigh 12 stone (168 stone) which is pretty average for my age. I look upon my younger self with a lot of regret cause my weight had sort of a ripple effect, making everything in my life more difficult like socializing and making friends but it made me not love myself which is one of the most dangerous things for somebody cause if people don’t love themselves no-one is going to do it for them, which is the place I was stuck in for a while, but I’m mostly over it now
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: If you want to improve anything in your life, you need to improve yourself first.
There is nothing more powerful than someone who takes full control of their life cause they know how to get what they want out of everything and they achieve it.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : To be a happy, stress free person who knows what they want to do with their life. That’s all I really want other then to be able to make music that I’ve been struggling with for a while. I’d also like to get rid of my mental problems that I struggle with like social anxiety and intense stress.
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : I don’t really understand the clout-chaser life style, but it’s so popular for some reason. Sometimes when I go on social media it’s flooded with either really buff guys who are using steroids heavily with no short on or girls with no fathers showing their ass at any opportunity for follows. If you want a bit of attention or clout make interesting content that gets people involved with what you do and makes them intrigued and wanting more.
How would you help people around the world who are going through mental health problems? : Exercise and be active, It is an amazing feeling when you can see yourself get in shape and it drive confidence and self love up a lot. But other than that you need to find what makes your mental health go down cause only when you do this can you tackle it head on and get rid of it.
How would you describe a better world for us all? : A world where everyone has no mental problems, they are the real killers in today’s world.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I don’t think that I have a lot of interesting things to say in my life, So all I can say is have a lovely day my friends
