"You Matter" A Testament by Kyle Deaver - Ep 39
The 4th episode in my series of guests from the Yes Fam community, features Kyle Deaver, a US Army Combat Veteran dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Kyle is a walking testament to my belief that "vulnerability is strength" because he is one of the strongest people I've ever had the privilege of meeting. As you listen to Kyle's story - from a difficult childhood, to the horrors of war, to losing friends on the battlefield and to suicide, to terrible relationships, and the everyday challenge of PTSD - I'm sure you'll see that strength. Despite everything Kyle has been through, after sharing his story, you'll hear Kyle talk about what keeps him going, and his reasons for continuing to wake up in the morning.
Kyle believes that everybody matters. Kyle says that there are billions of stars in the universe, but it is the Sun that we need to light up the Earth. There may be 7 billion people in the world, but it is you, reading and listening to this, that is bringing light to someone's life. In the words of Chester Bennington, "Who cares if one more light goes out? Well I do."
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in the United States: 1-800-273-8255. Please call it if you ever need it.
