Bressie: ‘This is not a lost year – we have built psychological flexibility’
Mental health advocate and podcaster Niall Breslin says people should not be viewing the last 12 months as a ‘lost year’. Bressie told The Hard Shoulder it is normal for people to feel bad during the pandemic. But he said people will come out stronger on the other side. “Maybe we’re a little bit tougher than we give ourselves credit for. But that’s normal, that is normal reaction to what has been an immensely difficult year. He said he has allowed himself “feel a bit bad or feel a bit low, and allow myself hit walls. That’s normal, that’s a normal reaction to this”.
