🎙️ Reaching My Lowest Low Before Reinventing My Life (Issue #80)

I thought my life was over at 20, believe it or not

⛔️ WARNING: I talk about alcohol abuse and depression in this episode.

Believe it or not, I hit rock bottom at 20 years old.

I’ve never shared this story before, but as someone who coaches people who sometimes worry they are failing in life, I think it’s time. I want folks to know it’s always possible to turn their lives around.

Judging by some comments I’ve received on social media and in my DMs, I think some people believe my life has always been easy. That I’m a lucky person. Somehow, it’s all been sunshine and puppies and unicorn ponies frolicking in a meadow filled with beautiful wildflowers.

How cool would that be?

Unfortunately, it’s not true.

However, it is true that now I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I focus relentlessly on my relationships, being healthy, working on things I believe in, and spending my days the way I want.

And that’s because I hit bottom once and didn’t like where my life was heading. I didn’t like who I had become. I knew I had to find a better path forward. So now, I refuse to backslide.

They say it’s always darkest before the dawn. That’s certainly true for my life.

I stumbled and fell. It seemed hopeless. But I got on my feet, reinvented myself, and created an amazing life despite those colossal mistakes.

No matter how down you feel, you can always come back and become the person you know you are capable of being.
