In this episode, I speak with Jamel Moore. Jamel is a black men who is a spoken word artist, model, and motivational speaker. When he exchanged vows with his second wife, he was determined that this time, he was going to do it "right". Unfortunately, like almost 50% of the US population, the relationship ended in divorce and depression.

I invite you to join our conversation as Jamel and I discuss:

  • "It's not my fault"
  • Shame vs guilt
  • Co-dependency
  • Numbing the Pain
  • Alcohol Abuse
  • Getting massages
  • Therapy
  • What it means to feel secure
  • Healing Process
  • Breakthroughs
  • Black men and depression
