Optimal You Ep16- Joe's experience with Depression and Suicide
This is a scary one to put out there! 2021 was rough for a lot of us, many saying similarly it was the roughest year of their lives. I was no different. My life long struggles with depression, suicide, and anxiety were put through the ringer at the start of the year. To break down the stigma of Mental Health, I am opening up and sharing about my decision and journey to live. This message is for everyone, but in particular for my guys out there. We don't normally talk about feelings. We don't normally share when we are struggling. Why? We all feel the same feelings but for one reason or another keep the burden within ourselves. You are not alone! I hope you enjoy this message and find value. Keep fighting! Keep making the decision to not give up. If I can do it, so can you.
