Joke on the most taboo topic in Mental health: what I usually hear from people who went to therapy is :”So, what did you do?” and the person who came back from counselling replied “Oh well, we just talked”.

Hi Crew, this is my tribute to Trauma as an Empath Warrior. In the aftermath of Paris attacks, in 2015, I was hotel assistant in elite resorts when my life fell apart. Since then it's been a night sea journey that I am glad to share around the fire with beers on me. Cheers xx
