I got this message today,
"Just wanted to send a message and say I saw your video yesterday and was really moved. I've seen you post about your health struggles before and your brother, but of course I didn't know the full story, nor would I ever pry.
It's been fourteen years since my brother died.
When I was asked by Jimmy from The Human Aspect to be interviewed about the greatest challenge I have ever had to face, I knew the answer even before he had finished the sentence.
It was without doubt one of the most harrowing and forming experiences of my life - which in someways I am grateful for.
Now I know that may sound strange, but when you watch the video, you'll begin to understand what I mean.
It's not something I would wish on anyone, but I believe that we don't always get what we ask for, and its about how we deal with situations we are given that matters most.
The coping strategies that I used (which I share towards the end of the interview) are powerful, and in this time of global lock-down, uncertainty, fear and panic, being able to practically deal with these emotions are now more than ever, necessary.
Check out my interview and learn more about my story on The Human Aspect, and share with someone who needs to here that message right now.
