Motivation 36

Due to illness I rely on fishing to motivate me and exercise my mind and self esteem.

Motivation 37

I suffer from myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome and find fishing one of the very few ways I can totally relax.

Motivation 39

Being on your own is cool, being around people when you suffer from depression or stress is/can be helpful. Imagine a soldier returned from conflict. A quiet beach with someone to talk to IF he needs to is worth a lot.
