Thank you for sharing your wisdom!

Hey Jay, this year I faced one of the lowest lows due to (mild) depression and body image issues. While I have been going for therapy, I found out about your work and have been actively listening to your podcast and just finished reading Think Like A Monk. They have helped me so much, your voice is so centred and calming that it instantly calms me down sometimes. Thank you, please keep doing what you do! ♥️♥️
