“Do you realize that any of this doesn’t matter or mean anything if you don’t mean anything to yourself? The disease of addiction doesn’t discriminate whether you’re from Park Ave or a park bench, or whether you’ve been to Yale or jail.”
In this episode, we hope to inspire people all around the world who may be struggling with addiction, or have had a similar situation in the past, to realize their significance and self-worth, and to break free from the things that are enslaving them or preventing them from becoming the best version of themselves.
To help me do that is a guest who so generously spent his time with me to share his rollercoaster of a journey. Allow the powerful honesty of this interview to help make you see things in a totally different perspective not just for people who struggle with addiction, but for anyone out there who might still be doubting that they are meant for great and beautiful things that life has to offer…
