When going through an emotional breakdown a friend reminds me to ‘go back to your blog and see what you have done and the lives that you have touched. Stay focused and don’t let the mind have even a tiny chance to get you down…fight harder to stay positive and happy‘.
No one ever tells you about the emotional ringer you experience as a bootstrap entrepreneur. We like to pretend that we have it all together.
But the truth is that we regularly oscillate between depression and obsession. Although it is usually during periods of extreme suffering that you find that fire to seize your life in order to make things happen.
