A Letter by Robbie
“Open to Love”
Ever woke up after a party and wondered where the hell you are? How about who the hell? Then you remember. You’re the reincarnation of Sitting Bull. Undefeated samurai swordsman Miyamoto Musashi. And (the real) 007. It’s a long way back from psychosis. But – for more of us than you might think – there is a way. I had an apocalyptic breakdown at 23 that I thought I’d never find my way back from. I did though. Thanks to professionals, friends and family who listened without prejudice. At 46, I’ve lived in the Caribbean, built my own business and have a lovely wife and 2 kids. All of which seemed impossible at my lowest moments. I know I’m fortunate. All the same, I hope my recovery gives somebody somewhere hope. One day at a time. Little steps. Safe spaces. Remember – the people who thank you the most for keeping going might just be a twinkle in your eye right now.
