Connecting people to their unique human experience through Purpose.

I will always be different.

This is what Shelby has always thought about himself. He has a weird pull to find the truth in things and has questioned almost everything for his entire life. He is not sure why or where it all started.

It was not until his 21st birthday and a 3-day drinking binge that he fell into a mental health downward spiral he could never have imagined. He has been in the hole for a year with no help from doctors or the conventional system. He remembered laying in his bed one day and letting go of every last ounce of drive he had. Shelby thought that he actually might die. Everything just felt like death for him.

However, he decided to give it one last shot and do everything he could to bounce back.

He came back stronger than he ever was -- mentally and physically. Shelby continued to challenge himself, and now he is working on his new project, the Azhen Sanctuary, which serves his purpose of uncovering the truth and finding a better way to live.

In this week’s episode of People of Purpose, Tanur and Shelby will talk about his health journey and how he bounced back.
