I found this article incredibly engaging and highly recommend reading it in full—the link is provided in the comments. My personal journey from an adolescent seeking an escape from life’s challenges led me to cycling and running, eventually drawing me into the worlds of sports, triathlons, and finally rowing. This experience allows me to resonate deeply with the concept of using sport as a form of escape. Particularly, endurance sports, distance events, and solo activities have offered a means to not only distance myself from difficult circumstances but also to create a psychological safe haven for reflection, learning, and growth. However, I believe the article articulates these ideas more eloquently than I can, so I encourage you to give it a read.
Resilience is based on cooperation. On the idea that our brain is a sculpture, and that, despite the blows, we can remold it, return it to its original shape, with the help of another. This applies to sports and to any other field. That is why the ethologist warns of the drift of an increasingly individualistic society. “It is an illusion to believe that you can understand yourself by remaining alone. That is a Cartesian thought. An individualistic idea. When I worked in Japan I was told that the individual vision is a Western way of thinking,” he remarks. [Boris Cyrulnik]
