It’s How We Heal

Joe Rogan and Wim Hof on Overcoming Depression, Anxiety and PTSD

I’ve always had anxiety. To calm it down, I used to get wasted or spend money trying to cover it up with something else. Seven months ago, I went sober and am learning how to listen compassionately to my inner anxious voices. What I’ve learned is that it’s always about shame or fear. What I’m learning is that I can face those fears and resolve them instead of trying to sweep them away.

The parts of myself that emerged when I was drunk were parts I loved but was scared to show. Now, I’m learning to love my whole self, all the time. I never thought I had a substance abuse problem, but recovering is transforming my life.

Love all the parts of you. They deserve it. It’s how we heal.


Responsibility To One’s Self

When we better ourselves, we better those around us.

I have a long family history of drug abuse & alcoholism which has deeply affected my life / family. Luckily I don’t struggle with these issues. Over the years I’ve learned I can’t fix or force the people in my life to be better. I am only responsible for myself – & only I am capable of making myself happy.



This is one example of the motivation behind this project.

9 years ago I was heavily addicted to cocaine. I didn’t think it was possible to break free of my addiction. I lost everything, including my self worth & will to live.

9 years later, I own my own successful business, am happier than I ever could have imagined. I have a happier life – joyous & FREE.
