Sometimes, stress and anxiety lead people to addiction and the feeling that you are isolated, especially dealing with your ideas of masculinity. The feeling that you cannot talk to another guy because they might not understand, or push you away, or make you feel awkward. This brings me to the guest in this week’s episode: Tyler Bentley, an Edmonton man, who contacted me and we sat down in the bowels of MacEwan University (that’s why you hear a little background noise) and asked me to help him share his story, one that involves these themes of disconnection, addiction, introspection, anxiety, and recuperation. And in the end, the revelation of his own masculinity and his own soul.
