When life got better for me than I imagined:

I’ve spent the last several years on the road. I’ve lived in 9 countries so on the surface of it — it sounds amazing right?

  • I had 100+ of therapy over the years
  • Often felt anxious and alone
  • I moved every several months and never developed a close friend that I could share my own ups and downs with
  • I buried myself in sport. Marathons, Ultramarathons, Muay Thai

Then one drizzly day in Earls Court, London — I met the man who would become my best friend:

We spend more time in different countries than we have the same one. It’s not often we see each other — but there we are daily sending one another the most ridiculous messages:

Completely camp. Completely silly.

But it’s what makes us laugh on a daily basis.

I now know what it means to have a best friend.

It stands above and beyond the sporting/business or other achievements I’ve had in my time.

So how does this help you? Keep trying. I found my best buddy when I was 27 years old. So you never know what’s around the corner.
