Quotes:

“I was the popular kid in school... they looked at me and saw me as this high achiever... but they didn’t see the darkness in me that I had... and for a long time I just kept it completely silent”

“I was just drinking and doing drugs... and lost myself incredibly throughout college... and it got to a place where I was in such a dark place and tried to take my life away... I was stopped by someone from jumping off the bridge... he saved me and pulled me over the guard rail... and from there it was a journey to figure out why I was struggling the way I was... and how I could get out of it”

“I think masculinity really affected my own ability to really see when I needed help... I didn’t feel like I was allowed to cry... I was scared of judgment... and the more that I continue to share my own story... when people starting reaching out to me and saying that I helped them... that made me feel better more than anything else”

“I look where I am today and if me, myself, from 1.5 years ago saw where I am... it just blows my mind and honestly that what makes life so exciting”

“We have to live life in a way of learning how to adapt... because life is so hard as it is... but if we live through true self-awareness... and are able to stay true to ourselves... that is what life is about”

“My life changed when I stopped trying to mold the image of myself to what other people wanted me to be”
