José is so sweet! His life sounds like a movie when he tells this story. I won't spoil it but why José? We constantly have these thoughts of why me? The hard thing is coming out of that tough time and moving on. José dealt with his breakup in many different ways but now he looks back as if he has learned something about himself and about how he handles situations. This guy is just really smart and put together. You will love him.
When you have moments of panic just center yourself. Meditate. José does and you should too! If meditation means 2 minutes of silence, go for it. If it means giving yourself an hour to focus and release, find that time. There are apps, books, and websites that can help you get to that place. Breathe my friends.
