Reflecting on what he describes as “the most challenging time” of his life, he wrote: “I’ve watched and read so much over the last six months to try and make sense of all the mess in my head.
“Tried to find ways to organise all of my problems so that they are bound and organised into folders and boxes, so that they will never haunt me or effect me again.
“I’m slowly starting to realise that the words above are the only words that really matter….and they are the words of the incredible @brenebrown …. ‘You are enough.'”
“Sorry to blab on. But I know we are all dealing with some really heavy s**t at times.
