Today we’d like to introduce you to Myles Scott.
Myles, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’m a former fuckboy now trying to help the collective understand their behaviors by diving inward. The trajectory of my journey first started with societal programming that taught me that being a man entailed not showing emotions, hiding vulnerabilities, and that having intercourse with as many partners as possible was not just normal but “applause worthy” too.
Through the course of many failed relationships and one in particular that spawned my suicidal depression, I was able to see how the faulty male programming of today’s society lent itself to my behavior as a “fuckboy,” and how I still carried with me many toxic behavior and thought patterns into my relationships even after I thought that phase of my life was over. It was only after thorough introspection that I was able to take a step back, look at my entire life, and see how my constant need for female attention and acceptance from my peers was simply a means of getting small hits of acceptance and praise for my fragile “ego,” and reinforce a sense of false confidence I so desperately needed. I am on a quest to help others, whether that be men who simply want to learn how to open up to their emotions or women who desire to learn how to derive their self-worth from within.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I don’t feel that any journey worthy of helping others or contributing to societal change is ever free of challenges. In the end, however, you become grateful for these challenges because there are lessons in every obstacle. Not only are you able to level up through these opportunities for new awareness, but you also understand how they help you relate to others who were having the same issues. How can we truly empathize with others if we’ve never been in their shoes? Some of the challenges presented in my journey were caused because I didn’t know that everything I did was due to how I felt about myself, and had absolutely nothing to do with the women I hurt along the way. Taking responsibility for my life and becoming accountable for how it panned out was a catalyst for self-awareness and personal empowerment.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
There’s currently a waitlist for one-one-one coaching, where I help others overcome patterns that aren’t serving them, and help them become their highest self. There may be a couple spots opening soon. We’re rolling out our Self-Care Accountability Club, where those interested in making a positive change in their lives get prizes for keeping themselves accountable. My book, a memoir called Confessions of a Former F*ckboy is being pitched to several traditional publishers as we speak, so we’ll see some movement on that soon. One of my biggest goals is to help solve the hunger and homelessness problem and I’ve put together a concept that could work. However, such a big undertaking will need massive support, so if you’re reading this and would like to help, please contact me.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I felt left out and was often bullied and made fun of. I was shorter than all the other guys in my class, I was raised vegan so I couldn’t eat like everyone else, and on top of that, my Jewish upbringing also contributed to feeling like an outcast. I became super involved with soccer which soon became one of the only things my ego could be proud about. Senior year in high school was the year everything changed for me, as I went from getting no female attention as a 5ft tall boy, to suddenly having a huge growth spurt, and getting lots of attention from the opposite sex.
