Beyond Surviving with Rachel Grant


S8 Ep. 5: Chris-Breaking Down My Walls

We all experience pain and damage along the course of our lives. The focus of this conversation with Beyond Surviving Graduate, Chris, is on the experiences we face in life, whether big or small and how they could trigger our (conscious or subconscious) defensive mechanisms.

We discuss how you can spot the walls you might have built up in your life and how you can bring them down by self-love, compassion, and empathy.



Chris graduated from Beyond Surviving in 2017. Every day, he continues his journey of healing and self-discovery. He has worked to let go of the resentment from past trauma and constantly strives for healthier and happier relationships with himself and others.
