How Taking Taekwondo Classes Saved My Life

During college, as a young woman it was suggested to me that I take a martial arts class in order to protect myself down dark alleys going home. While I thought I would be fine by myself, I went.
Taking the classes turned out to be extremely fun, and actually helped me battle major depression. I had a hard time becoming a part of group activities due to my chemical imbalance, so when I attended the first class, I thought this would be a one time thing. Thankfully, I was wrong.
I had such a great time the first time that I decided to enroll in a month long class, designed to invigorate the body. Being so physically active was amazing; the support much needed.
Since taking the first classes, I continued on with these special training programs. The benefits I have felt from taekwondo have been tremendous. I love every second of the classes.
Since college, I have continued going to these classes, focusing on improving my overall well being. Of course, taekwondo has not cured me of my major depression, but it helps me regulate my mood and get involved with others. Being able to look forward to this activity has given me hope in the future for my depression.
Taekwondo has taught me how to live life fearlessly. While I still struggle on a daily basis, I do not have to fear the future when I have taekwondo to lean back on when I need it.
