Episode 8 - Moving Forward

Our eighth episode explores the ways in which we can move forward from difficult periods or situations, and how we can gain a different perspective on life after leaving something behind. We discuss how we can recognise the progress we're making, no matter how big or small, what barriers might be holding us back from progressing further, and how we can improve our offer of support towards others who are also going through a difficult time.

This month, I am joined by Arthur West. Arthur is a musician and is also currently working on a book focusing on mental health and his journey and discoveries along the way.

This episode's "ask-the-audience" includes questions such as "How easy or difficult do you find it to recognise the progress you're making?", "What do you think your biggest barrier is that is stopping you from moving forward at the rate you'd like?", "What best sums up your experiences regarding offers of support?", and"What do you do in order to recognise your progress?" Thank you to everyone who voted in the polls and gave your feedback! Watch the full episode below:

How would you describe your ability to recognise your progress when overcoming something? Is this something you struggle with, or do you have any helpful tips or methods you'd like to share with others? What difficulties have you encountered regarding other people offering you support during difficult times? Do you find you prefer to listen, or be listened to? Do you have any helpful tips for others who might be struggling, and how they can make better progress on their journey moving forward? Let us know in the comments! Thank you so much for tuning in to another episode. Just a little update; the podcast will be taking a break for the next few months as I focus on the release schedule for my debut album. I am hoping to return with some new episodes for you in the New Year, but thank you so much to everyone who's tuned in to each episode over the past few months. I hope you've found some value and comfort in this series. Thank you for your support, see you soon! Much love, Sam
