GUEST DOUG LAWRENCE

It was truly an honor to be a guest on Randi-Lee’s podcast Write or Die.

I always enjoy when a host can create a safe place for a conversation and that is exactly what Randi did. I was able to share some of my lived experiences, even those that were emotionally charged.

I particularly liked the term “Truth Bomb” that Randi used which focused on us speaking the truth. Shows such as Write or Die do just that as they provide a means for us to speak that truth.

I found it very easy to share my stories because Randi knew the right questions to ask to keep our conversation flowing. Her point about making bad decisions struck home for me on a number of fronts.

Relationships are important to us today in fact even more so with struggling with COVID and what that has done to our conversations and how we communicate. Having lost my wife and best friend to cancer in February of this year there is a void that I struggle to live with.

I touch on a lot of these issues in my second book which is entitled “You Are Not Alone” which is set to be published January 17th, 2022. The book speaks to mentoring and mental health and how mentoring can be a part of the support structure for mental health and mental well-being.

You can also take a look at my first book “The Gift of Mentoring” which is available on Amazon.ca. This will give you the foundation of mentoring processes and concepts.

If I could leave you with one thing that would be to “Ask for Help” – reach out and get the help you need to begin and continue your healing journey.
