Behind Milano Art
“It started to build up, and it got to a very dark place….it got to a point where it boiled over, and I was on my bike ride, and I rode over to the bridge, and I got off my bike, and I looked down, and I was this close to jumping over the edge, and I got a phone call from a buddy of mine that just simply said, ‘Wassup man, you want to come hang out? I was just thinking about you.’ And that phone call, I tell him to this day, that phone call probably saved my life.” -Matt Milano
Are there moments when things started to “boil over” for you? Describe the experience. How were you able to move through it?
