We’ve all used the “someone’s always got it worse off” bandaid of toxic positivity when something bad happens, and the buzz of recent times is around being resilient, but what if that paper cut was the last in a long chain of bad experiences that completely emptied our emotional bucket?
Derrick McManus had a really bad day at work once. He was shot 14 times in 5 seconds and almost died. His recovery and re-entry to the same team is only a part of Derrick’s story, which is one of durability and action well past the platitudes of “she’ll be right”.
In this episode, Derrick shares his story and experiences to shift our perspective on the value of resilience.
