  1. Great podcast!
    The key is physical fitness plus nutrition, U owe it to yourself! You’ve pounded yourself, it will rebuild your self esteem, like matt said put on some tunes or listen to u2 if you can deal with it in public places.

    When you’re living in the bottom of the well, there’s no further way down emotionally so Jan-Mar is easy.

    Mending fences is an ongoing process once you’re up for it.
    Jan-Mar is a great time.

    Christmas holidays is summary of your emotional year with the family, if they’re poor or judgmental It’s your conciseness report card, hence start the work right the wrongs and next Holiday season will be your goal. Turn a negative into a positive.

    It’s not easy but recovery isn’t easy. it’s you being vulnerable and that’s the best character and hits any caring human hard.
