‘Rock bottom for me was laying between two and three women at a time’ — Deion Sanders

Some people are going to read this and go, “This is the biggest bunch of horsecrap I’ve ever heard! Let me live like this and I’ll be thrilled.”

Turns out living in mansions, buying sick cars and banging dozens of women — sometimes 2 or 3 at a time — ain’t all it’s cracked up to be … so says Deion himself.

We know what you’re thinking … THAT SOUNDS AWESOME!!! But, Deion says he actually lived through it … and it was miserable. The lavish party lifestyle was just a cover-up for the pain he was feeling inside.

“Rock bottom for me was just being in the midst of a game when everybody’s screaming when they don’t know your middle name,” the NFL legend said on Paula Faris’ ‘Journeys of Faith’ podcast.

“Rock bottom for me was having hundreds of suits and not covering the pain. Rock bottom for me was having hundreds of pairs of shoes but couldn’t take a step in the right direction.”

“Rock bottom for me was having 10 cars and wasn’t going nowhere. Rock bottom for me was having a 14,000-square-foot house but never feeling at home.”

“Rock bottom for me was laying between two and three women at a time, but you get up unsatisfied. Rock bottom for me … yes, I was bleeding.”

“Laying right beside the person who said they love you, but she didn’t even know you was in pain. That was rock bottom for me.”

Sanders said he tried to talk to friends about his situation but no one understood.

“I was crying out to people. But, they couldn’t hear you because they saw Prime. They saw my character. The character I created, not the character of a man. They saw the character I created — that was Prime.”

Sanders has addressed his issues before — describing in his autobiography, “Power, Money & Sex: How Success Almost Ruined My Life,” how the stress drove him to attempt suicide in 1997.

Think about that. Neon Deion was rich, famous, had an amazing career, a mansion and lots of women and….he was so miserable he tried to kill himself. That might sound crazy at first, but there are people who from the outside look like they’re having pretty good lives who kill themselves every day. Sometimes it’s flat out mental illness, but let me make another suggestion.

If you’re not growing, don’t have a purpose in life and a sense of connection to other human beings, that’s where you can mentally get into trouble. You can have money; you can have women; you can have fame; you can have all the trappings of success, but those things are ultimately a means to an end. People want to feel like they’re becoming better, making a difference and matter to people that they care about.

That’s one of the reasons we’re all still pumping out kids despite the fact that they’re expensive, time-consuming and a pain in the butt. They check all three of those boxes for people and despite all the negatives that can go along with kids, that connection, sense of purpose and forced growth they cause improves people’s lives immeasurably.

One day if the rest of the world looks at you and thinks you have it all, but you’re still unhappy, ask yourself if you’re growing, have a purpose and are connected to other people. It might just save your life.
