Joan Larsen Writes: No Stiff Upper Lip – Prince Harry Speaks Candidly and Emotionally About His Life Struggles

In a voice that is both moving and articulate, England’s Prince Harry has only now come out to the world – to us – about his severe emotional problems following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

Still struggling in his late twenties – almost two decades after losing his mum – he only then began to address the shutdown of emotions he was feeling.  It was his brother, Prince William, and other confidantes, who persuaded him to receive the needed help.

“My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand – refusing to think about my mum because why would that help?  I was like ‘don’t ever let your emotions be part of anything’”.

The prince – openly talking in a way that includes all of us who may be struggling:  “Everyone has their stress.  There are ways and means to get around that stress and to cope with life in general.  But far more than that, not only is it is going to make it better for you – but it’s going to be better for everyone else who cares for you and worries about you.”

Already, psychologists the world over are saying that in this one interview, Harry has now shown the world that talking about your problems is nothing to be ashamed of.  This extraordinary interview – given below – not only gives us a deep insight into his past . . . but will now do much to encourage people to break the stigma surrounding mental health issues that just about all of us face as we go through life.

In the – by far – most frank and candid interview of Harry’s life, giving the public its first glimpse of the inner turmoil he suffered growing up in the public eye, we now hear how he sought professional counseling to cope with the pressures and the unhappiness.

But I believe you will find – as I have – that each of us will relate in our own way.  And, yes, absolutely for the better.

And now, Prince Harry’s interview that I believe will touch your heart . . but perhaps, just perhaps, will help you in your own life.  Click on the image below to go to the podcast!
