Overview

Failure is failure. I had failed… miserably! I suck at break-ups but who doesn’t? I was the guy next door who “had it all together!” But that’s not what goes on inside.



My experience had shame written all over it, a significant departure from the person I thought I was. Failing emotionally started a journey filled with the very real pain of heartbreak and the smothering cloud of depression. I discovered what vulnerability really was and how my generation ran from it.



Search your own heart and find those scars. They never really heal but they become a better part of us. To get through a day you sometimes need some assurance that you are not alone. For those who need to know there is another day worth living, you’re welcome to share this journey.

About the Author

Rick realized later in life that bucket lists and passion were very important for a life lived, not observed. From the highs of climbing Kilimanjaro to the lows of a deeper emotional abyss and back again, what started out as a personal healing process turned into a transformational journey. His motivation to learn and understand vulnerability, depression, anxiety and heartbreak led to the discovery of how mindfulness could help the healing process. More importantly, he learned to understand how people in emotional conflict needed to feel they are not alone. Rick has trained to be a Master Life Coach and Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness Facilitator. He is in the process of building a blog site around helping people identify and share similar experiences in order to raise awareness about emotional struggle and help fuel the healing journey.
