Recently, Jeremy Lin talked about his experience of playing in the CBA League and his psychological struggles in an interview.
Jeremy Lin said that although he was selected as an All-Star in the CBA season, he encountered many good things, "but I have always been struggling with fear."
Jeremy Lin said that he had a serious anxiety disorder. The root cause was that he became an NBA free agent last summer but did not get a contract offer.
"My problem is very serious. The opener is an away game. After I woke up in a hotel, I stood in the bathroom and suddenly felt that I didn't have any strength in my body. I collapsed, stumbled back to bed, and shrank, because of anxiety, I can't move for a few minutes."
Jeremy Lin said that he was too nervous about the opener and couldn't find any confidence. He also said that in one game during the season, he played well by himself, but the team lost and one of his teammates did not play well. He also apologized to that teammate after the game, "I want to take all the responsibility because I'm so scared."
He said he couldn't help but compare all the statistics after the game, even if he performed well, he would pick the wrong one. When the CBA began to limit the number of foreign aid applicants in January, he panicked even more.
"That's what I did
Last summer, Jeremy Lin talked about this at a sharing meeting, and broke down and cried. Now he also said that it is a relief for him to share his own mental journey in the past year. When the suspension was suspended, he returned to the United States for two months and communicated with friends, which relieved a lot of psychological burden.
