Michael Oher is best known for his life story being depicted in the blockbutser movie, Blind Side, and as a Super Bowl winning offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens. He is an inspiration to so many but there is a darkside to pursuing your dreams at the highest level. He explains in a recent interview with People: “The mind is the most powerful thing and it has to be healthy to be successful,” says Oher. “I bottled so much stuff up throughout my life. I carried that with me and I think it hurt me in the long run. That may be the only thing holding you back from being where you want to be — talking to somebody.” via https://people.com/sports/nfl-player-michael-oher-the-blind-side-opens-up-about-mental-health/
