I’d grown a successful business, had a wife and two kids, but was going on drug benders for days on end, filling myself up with junk food each day, and relying on sugar, caffeine and everything else to pull me through my sleep deprived miserable existence.
“Nothing works for me, what’s the point?”
“I’m different,” I thought.
Sadly, I still felt “different” on the 17th December 2014 when I took myself to the edge of a cliff and was ready to jump off.
I’d told myself this lie for so long that I was now staring death in the face.
I felt sorry for myself, I doubted myself, and I refused to think any differently.
But the truth is, I’m just a regular guy from South Shields with two GCSEs and two kids. There’s nothing special, unique or different about me at all.
I’ve had many of the same experiences other people have had, including you, and I’ve chosen to deal with them in various ways. Some good, some bad.
I used to deal with them one way, which nearly drove me to suicide...
And then from that day on I started dealing with them differently, which has now got me to where I am today, doing what I love - helping other people to sort themselves out.
So no matter who you are, what you’ve done, how you feel, it all begins and ends with you.
