"I felt I had to feel that I was the most fortunate person in the world, when actually, I felt very vulnerable. I had a shaky time in my life around there — like I think a lot of people do in their 20s."

"That was a time when I started therapy, and started talking to people," he continued. "I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone."
