It is these gloves that carry every pain, every stress and every once of sadness that is kept inside me. With every punch anger, past rejection, self hatred pulses out of my body into these gloves and then onto whatever is standing in front of me in that moment. These are the gloves that make me fight through my toughest battles before I enter the ring. They have taught me more about myself than any self help book ever will. In my darkest hour these gloves gave me a sliver of light.
