Nothing is off-limits in this episode. From Mike’s drug addiction to suffering abuse at an early age, to living with ADHD, listen in as Mike provides practical advice and insights about healing your mindset which can be done in many ways including through a simple act of forgiveness.
“I'm empathizing and being compassionate for a person that didn't have the ability to self-regulate. So, I think for anyone listening for your audience and the reason I talk about in the book is that I let them know how much I suffered because of my mental health. You can regulate yourself and slow down the fight-flight and freeze and feed mode and get in the parasympathetic mode and give people a pass. Forgive them. Don't take it personally.” – Mike (47:20)
