Chris Webb: When Speaking Up Was the Difference Between Life & Death

Police Officers witness the worst of humanity every day.

They hardly have time to process some of the horrific things they’ve just seen before they’re off to their next call.

Over time, in order to cope with the evil they interact with, they shove down the trauma deep inside and never talk about it.

In fact, talking about it isn’t safe, because they could lose their jobs if their peers or boss thinks they’re not mentally tough.

So they find other ways to numb the feelings. Numb the pain. Numb the trauma.

This doesn’t only happen to law enforcement. We all experience this in one way or another.

Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away though.

It continues to fester… until some day, you’re forced to face it. And by that time, it’s often ruined many parts of your life.

If you’ve ever been afraid to speak up to a boss, a friend, or a spouse about an internal suffering that you’re carrying, I invite you to listen to this episode with Chris Webb.

It just might set you free.
