Here are Harrys most moving quotes: On our collective tendency to keep things bottled up: Saying fine is so much better than having to go into the details. Most of us arent up for going that deep. On how his mothers death affected him: I can safely say that losing my mom at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well. On when he reached out for help: It was only three years ago, from the support around from my brother and other people, saying You really need to deal with this. Its not normal to say that nothing has affected you. On how he dealt with his mothers death initially: My way of dealing with it was sticking in my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mom, because why would that help, its only going to make you sad, its not going to bring her back. webView photos On the effect not dealing with his grief had on him: It was 20 years of not thinking about it, and two years of total chaos. On how he overcome his grief, and how other people can too: Theres nothing better than being able to share your experiences, and ask for advice from someone who has actually bene through it, rather than a compete stranger or someone who doesnt actually get what youve been through. On the other side of his grief: By the age of 30, I was like, Wow, this is a much better way of life.’ On how his emotions affected those around him: I know that theres huge merit in talking about your issues, and the only thing about keeping it quiet, its only ever going to make it worse. Not just for you, but for everyone else around you, as well, because you become a problem. And I, for a lot of my twenties, was a problem. I dont know how I dealt with it. On how he leaned on his brother, Prince William: My brother was a huge support to me, and kept saying, This is not right, its not normal, you need to talk about this stuff, its okay.’ On using his influential position for good: One of the best things ever, I think its what my mother believed in, if youre in a position of privilege or a position of responsibility, and you can put your name to something you genuinely believe in, and that other believe in, and you get that support, and that belief and that encouragement, you can smash and stigma you want. You can encourage anybody to anything. And I hope thats what Heads Together is proving.
