"I simply couldn't be bothered to invest the time, energy and effort required to stay in this profession."

In the same interview, Imran revealed that he could not socialize with people and wanted to stay alone. He also mentioned the importance to seek therapy whenever feeling low. He further continued:

"I felt damaged on the inside, and I wanted to fix that. If you pull a hamstring, you go to the physiotherapist. You don't feel good mentally? Seek therapy."

"If you speak to someone who has given up an addiction or gone off alcohol, they could tell you the exact number of days they've been sober. It's the same for me with my mental health. It's been 2,500 days since I started my analysis on March 13, 2017."
