I recently had the privilege of talking with Thrive Global about my journey as an author, educator and recovering addict (“F.A.T.E From Addict to Entrepreneur With Dr. Tyra Manning Author of “Your Turn” And Michael G. Dash”).
The interview Q&A was a great way to help launch my latest book, Your Turn: Ways to Celebrate Life Through Storytelling, at the beginning of October.
This was a candid and long-form interview in which I discussed overcoming addiction at length. Although that process of breaking my dependence from alcohol in the early 1980s was difficult, it was one of the most important moments of my life.
In the series of interview responses, I discuss how the fear of change and shame from addiction should never prevent someone from seeking help. I also talk about my personal journey and how storytelling, prayer and human connection have helped me heal and “face my demons.”
I hope these lessons from my recovery process will aid those trying to find their unique paths to recovery and a healthy life! The interview was a great reminder to my readers as to how the power of storytelling can be a powerful method for facing personal, and often deeply rooted, challenges.
