Strava and mental health

My friend has deleted his Strava account over 20 times in the last 12 months. He opens up a fresh account and sends requests out all over again.
Any head quacks know why?
I believe he has a self loathe issue and will never be happy with his performance. Maybe people like that should just ride without recording!?

Have you broached the subject with him?

Here for rides.
Just had to google it. Interesting, but not for me.
What, mental health?

He may have issues, and maybe he should stop using Strava but not a lot you as a friend can do about that really. At least while he's riding, he's getting fit and healthy and getting outdoors. There are worse addictions.

One time I asked about it. He says when he has a bad day, as in the wife nagging him and getting up early to feed the baby it makes him delete it. So the bad days are not even ride related. Just strange.
