My name is Erik Garrett and I’m from Mississippi, USA
What inspires you everyday
Nature, psychology, current affairs in politics, and social development tend to inspire me on a daily basis.
What is something you would change about people in the world
If I could change people I would have it be that everyone was just more conscious, more aware of how the individual has a major impact in the world as a whole.
What is your view on society today
I think society is very divided on many of today’s issues that we forget how many ideas we do share in common.
What is something you’ve struggled with
I’ve struggled with being depression and social anxiety since as long as I can remember. After a few life changing events, I’ve reached out and got the help I’ve needed for far too long.
What is a positive message you would give others
Sometimes we feel as though all hope is lost and that things are never going to get better in our lives, but with time and some serious self reflection we can be happy again. We can handle more than we think we ever could and that shows how strong each one of us truly is. Things will be better, just maybe not today. One day this present moment will be a distant memory and you’ll have changed into someone that your past self wouldn’t even recognize.
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
My goal is to be unapologetically happy with my life and who I truly am, to have real honest people in my life and just to become the best version of myself.
