153 - How The Lies I Believed Lead Me To Attempt Suicide

If you have experience with depression, odds are you've experienced its dark thoughts: You are worthless. A burden. Your best days are long gone. Your worst will be worse than your terrible now. What's the point? But the fact you just read that is a clue: Depression tells us all the same thing. And that should be cause for doubt it's actually true about you. But since we don't talk about depression and suicide, we each experience it as a private hell. Todays guest, Bob, wants you to know you are not alone, and that the lies aren't true. And that believing them, could literally kill you. Bob speaks of his lowest-low, and shares how, just a few years later, he's living an authentic life "at the starting point of what happiness is really about." There is hope. There is help. You are not alone. Trust someone who knows.
