“Oh my, where do I begin hmmm, when I came to AFR I was a very very angry depressed lost human. I felt like I had no place in life. I always said I felt like I was at a four way stop in life and none of the road signs were marked. I felt that at any point of time my next turn could be the wrong turn. I was scared I wasn’t seeing clear at all, so I thought the easiest way to solve these problems would be to take my own life. After my suicide attempt I landed myself here at AFR. Now I sit here a very happy man I wake up every morning with a smile on my face thankful for today AFR saved my life I now feel I have a place in life, my road signs are marked, and I’m so thankful to have a 2nd chance at life. I know now to just keep it simple don’t overwhelm myself. AFR has taught me how to control my anger I’ve learned to process my thoughts when I’m angry and think before I speak. MRT helped me realize that my whole life before AFR was a crock of shit I was living my life off of a list of false beliefs. I say this from the deepest depths of my heart thank you AFR for letting me discover my new me and saving my life I would have never made it if it wasn’t for this program.“
