Positive Words (2:10) Travis Nettles "Seven"


Peace with blessings for those who listening. My name is Seven. I'm currently incarcerated in a Toledo, Ohio prison.


And I decided to sit here and reach out, letting individuals know that I understand that it's a tough moment, it's tough time out there in this world and a lot of people out there is not used to being so isolated and sort of speak of a solitary confinement situation. And for me, serving a 20-year life prison sentence, I'm- I'm used to being separated from the world. I'm used to being separated from the children, I'm used to being separated from family. I'm used to being separated from, you know, society, period. So some techniques that you may would like to try if you getting overanxious or depressed, or their anxiety really just extremely kicking in, is just take a breath in three seconds, let it go, and just []. 


We pick up books, work out. Exercising is a beautiful thing; meditation is even greater. I just want to let you guys know that tough times don’t last, tough people do, in stressful situations. With this COVID-19 is not a forever thing; it's only just for a moment. And it's all a part of God's plan. So at the end of the day, when it gets back to normal- normalcy within the community, within our world, again, come out of this situation a better person than you was before the situation occurred. This is a time to really find yourself and understand who you really are and understand your loved ones, who you close by and whose core attainment with you.


Overall, you can check me out on my podcast at Justice for Seven.
