Friends, this week I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing my friend, fellow single dad, and fellow podcaster Walter Eggers. He's the host of We Rad Dads. He spends a lot of time interview inspiring dads and sharing the "real" versions of themselves with his audience. This was a great opportunity to get to know the man behind the mic.
Walter is very open with his pain and what he calls his "bomb crater". We all find ourselves in one way or another at what seems like "rock bottom". Maybe its a DUI, divorce, Layoff, or any other event that crushes our identity. The Bomb Crater doesn't define you, it's how you react and grow from it that does. Walter share some sound advice for Dads who are stuck.
Do something. Don't just stand there and feel sorry for yourself. Try something, fail, and try again.
Get a tribe. Surrounding yourself with good people who understand your struggle is HUGE. Walter gives great advice on HOW to do this as well.
The "T" word. Therapy, as Walt
