Colin and Tony discuss Tony’s “breaking the ice” moment and his introduction to therapy.

We have two options in life after we face a traumatic experience. 1. We continue to let the trauma control our lives (isolation, alcohol abuse, self hate, etc.)2. Fight back at your demons and don’t let the trauma control your life (counseling, writing, medication, etc) Find what works for you, find your Spark and battle your demons #TheSparkPodcast
