You Are Your Own Worst Enemy … Like Really

Recently, much to my comedic dismay, I was kicked in the nuts.

Yes, kicked in the nads, the balls, the pearls or whatever you and your locker room want to call them.

For those that have never been kicked in the nuts (I’m talking to you females) it is the one act besides proposing that can bring a grown man to his knees. And when that man is on his knees you’ll hear a symphony of swear words that will make the Church choir director cry.

It hurts that bad.

You want to know the crazy part?

The crazy part is I kicked myself in the balls. Well, not physically because you know physics, whatever the Hell that means; but rather mentally.

And it was after the twisting-nauseating pain that soon followed that I was overcome by a blanket of insight that I would like to share with you.

Are your nipples hard yet?


My insight was this: You Are Your Own Worst Enemy

The cat’s out of the bag (not that the cat was ever in there because you know cats and furthermore BAGS) but that’s the secret. You are your own worst enemy.

What’s the reason you’re not working in the field you want to be in? You.

What’s the reason you’re not making the money you want to make? You.

What’s the reason you’re not in the shape you want to be in? You.

What’s the reason you haven’t asked that special someone out? You.

I could go on and on but for the sake of your eyes, my fingers and the overall waning attention span of the room, I won’t.

You must be thinking: Well gee whiz Tony, you just took a massive shit down my throat and didn’t even take me out to dinner – some guy you are.

Relax amigo – there’s a sweet desert of relief somewhere in the next paragraph.

The Bright Side – You Are the Enemy

Here comes the vanilla explosion you’ve been dreaming about – since you are your own worst enemy, by nature you have the ability to control your destiny.

From what I figure, most people just need a good mental kick in the nuts from time to time to realize what path they’re on so they can pull over and make adjustments.

You see life is like yin and yang, you can’t have positive without negative as the forces are intertwined. It’s perfectly balanced like that. You have the power to control your life the moment you decide that you’re responsible for it – it’s quite the liberating feeling honestly.

I want to remind you that you have the power to make a difference; you just have to start. I know I’m just some guy you haven’t met but I hope this year your feet take you where you want to go.

Keep on keepin’ on.

Please comment, share and let me know what you think. Let me know the changes you want for yourself.

  1. Aint this the truth! You’d get a big ole Amen from this girl if you were preachin’ it! I recently experienced a coming to my senses moment and while I can’t understand nad kicking (although giving birth is no walk in the park) I do know the pain that comes with failing to grasp the golden rings! (Not that kind of golden rings– get your head out of the gutter). The great news, we get more than one chance to go for it! Looks like you have decided to take the bull by the horns so to speak. GOOD for you! I really wanted to tell you, I enjoy your humor on your blog. Don’t give up on it. You write humor very well and it is not easy to get that across. Something to think about!

  2. It’s amazing how that ‘enemy’ of yourself is like coming up against a wall of resistance. I have been working with it the past few months and I am amazed at how strong it is once you know what you want and you go for it. It’s a daily battle but the fight is much sweeter than doing what comes easy. And what comes easy is being your own worst enemy. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Really enjoyed your post. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Tony, I enjoyed the satrical rants especially this one and thank you for browsing my site. As you stated so authentically we are our own worst enemies and life has a karmaic flow of which we experience the good with the bad. When it comes to grabbing the bull by the horns analogies specific to having the power to motivate ourselves to using our potential and become self-actualized the answer is simply until we are fully aware of our self-identities, our insecurities and how we fit in this world to leverage those abilities there will always be individuals stuck at the crossroad of life. Too afraid to grasp life and live it abundantly and way too comfortable laying in the cut hoping the enablers will continue to be there Batman and chase all their discomfort and blues aways. Keep Blogging 🙂 Your Perspective Uncensored, Unapologetic, and Authentic.
