Benji Marshall : Gotcha 4 life

Post by happy tiger » Thu 07 Jun, 2018 11:00 pm

Just went and put the bin out and grabbed all the mail outs and their is a really good story in a wellness paper including Gus Worland and Benji Marshall in regards to Gus's Foundation Gotcha 4 life

Benji talks about coming home from training as a 19 year old and finding his housemate had attempted suicide

Also talks about his home town area of Bay of Plenty and how his town has the highest rate of male suicide in NZ

I been critical on field Benji , but good on you , telling men to share their issues with friends , Drs , partners is a great initiative and having a person you know you can call no matter what , well done all

And this is why I posted before that we should think before we post - sure constructive criticism etc is great, as is heated debate, but personal crap thrown at these guys is no good. They are mostly good kids busting their guts. Most go out of their way to help - just like this story.

Yes, personal criticism should be kept to a minimum...,.except when in relation to braith anasta

When someone uses depression as an excuse, to get their own way it's an offence to genuine sufferers.
