"You know, on the surface I look like a cold guy. I always dress in black, got tattoos. I look confident. But if you dig below the surface you realize that there's all these insecurities, and pains, and traumas, and mental illness and shit. I lost my father when I was 11 and a half years old. It was a suicide. He broke up with my mom and killed himself. And that just fucked me up for at least a whole decade. I used this suffering as an excuse to be an asshole too many times as I got older. At one point, I was working remotely in Southeast Asia, and trying to convince myself that I was this lone wolf, bad boy, baller. It didn't work. I came down with this big depression. I was swinging between these very dark thoughts, or full blown panic attacks. It was draining all the life energy I had. I just came to my business partners and said, 'You know, guys, I'm not well.' I was crying. 'I'm sorry I'm letting you down. I don't know how to deal with this shit, but I need help.' And they said, 'You know what, Franck? Take all the time you need. The business, and all of us, will be there when you come back.' I went to a seven week therapy program. I still see my therapist regularly. Breaking down and asking for help was the best thing that ever happened to me. It's when you manage to incorporate that pain, and that trauma into your narrative and turn it into something positive...this is the best thing in the world."
