Letting go and embracing a new life and version of yourself
How he bonded with his daughter
Struggling to connect with his daughter
How hard it is to be real and honest
Some of my favourite things Micheal said:
Family and putting your life in perspective
"I think family brings the biggest swings...it amplifies the lows as well as the highs"
"I think everyone's going through the same stuff...once you know that everyone is going through the same thing, it's kind of liberating"
One Small Step:
Don'y Judge yourself and be happy in yourself and your abilities as a father.
And your super power would be....
I'd want to be able to heal, not just physical but emotional too.
