Bridging the gap

Jason is doing a masterful job of helping bridge the gap between those with anxiety and those without. He is able to articulate many of the feelings that accompany anxiety so that those who suffer from it can put it to words and so those without can better comprehend it. Thanks for helping us communicate, understand, and better cope.

To reflect on others is to search within.

Real. Helpful. True.

Full disclosure: Jason is a dear friend (more like a brother, actually). We did a podcast together for years. All that said, this podcast is an act of courage and a gift to the world. It’s a gift for those riding their own train of anxiety and for those who aren’t, but want to better understand the loved ones who are. It’s the story of one person sharing their journey. However, his story will resonate with you no matter what you’re facing. It’s honest, real, and true. And I recommend it highly.
