Most of our experiences as human beings are universal, even though we can feel uniquely pained by them at the time. How you deal with each life experience and choose to move forward is what makes you truly unique.

The answers to life and happiness are not always out there in the big wide world, many are simply within you.

Straight-talking Shelley F. Knight offers real stories, controversial advice, personal development tools and warped humour to help you address limitations in your life, and suggests ways in which to take responsibility for your new life story rather than retelling your history.

    Authentic Feelings with Archie Messersmith-Bunting

    Authentic Feelings with Archie Messersmith-Bunting

    How are you feeling today?

    🎙In this episode of POSITIVE CHANGES: A SELF-KICK PODCAST, Shelley F. Knight talks to speaker, consultant, and coach, Archie Messersmith-Bunting a.k.a The Feelings Guy.

    👥 Join Shelley and Archie as they discuss drug addiction, sexuality, authenticity, feelings, and positive changes.

    💻 ARCHIE’S LINKS:

    Archie Messersmith-Bunting, M.S., or The Feelings Guy™, is a professional speaker, consultant, and coach who helps people discover how leading with their feelings can improve their quality of life and save the lives of those they come in contact with.

    He is the owner of Archie Cares, LLC and has spoken to thousands of people all over the world about how learning to tap into and actually listen to their feelings can begin the process of healing and true recovery. He teaches that when we begin to have an active and actual investment in the feelings of others, we have the power to provide healing and prevent suicide.

    Archie was a successful musical theater performer in New York City before addiction and clinical depression destroyed his childhood dream and led him to a place where he believed suicide was his only answer. After battling back from the jaws of addiction, Archie now uses the stages he graces to remind others that we are all more than "just" the wreckage of our past. He uses his voice to share with audiences that individual moments and decisions in our life do not define us, but they can help design us.

    Archie has been featured on numerous NBC and CBS local affiliates and most recently on the podcast, Braving the Journey.
