Key Quotes

“Whatever you are facing right now, judging on history, you are going to survive”

“I don’t think I experienced pure unadulterated joy from the age of 6 until 31”

“At the end of the day, I’d forgotten who I was”

“I don’t see it (the trauma) as a dagger above my head, I see it as a fire under my arse.”

“My trauma was hanging around my neck like a noose and I didn’t know it was there.”
