I know I learned a lot and will be much more patient in the future. At least I’ll try.

    Matt, thank you so much for sharing my article again. It’s odd, for so long I’ve hidden that part about my life from everyone, yet all the sudden now that it’s out there I want people to use my experience as fuel.

    So I want to say I appreciate you sharing one of the hardest things I’ve ever shared.

    Rad other picks as well dude!

      The thanks is all from me Ryan. It’s not easy to share the most intimate parts of our lives with the world, but it is in itself a rewarding and even cathartic experience. It also helps us as readers connect and relate to you in ways that are much more profound than a top ten list of things to do in Paris 🙂 Well done sir and keep up the good work.
