Because I struggled with suicidal ideation starting in early childhood, I had to come up with a way to mitigate those suicidal thoughts and feelings.
The only way I have been able to curb those feelings is thru following my passions or feeling like I was in a state of “flow”.
In childhood they were passions like photography, videography, technology, especially computers and the early internet, business, and making money from selling candy as well as from popular culture passions like Skateboarding, Pokemon cards, and Yo-Yos.
I eventually found power in the following 21 commitments, I call them the “Happy Hero PACT”.
