After treatment, Peterson managed to recover from akathisia and leave Russia free of benzene. He then traveled to Florida and on to Serbia to continue his rehabilitation from anxiety and neurological complications caused by physical dependence on the drug.
The professor announced that he now feels “things are put back together” as he works on his new book, tentatively titled “Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life,” which he believes will appear in July should and “goes very well”.
Peterson, who gained international fame back in 2016 with his YouTube series in which he criticized Canadian legislation mandating the mandatory use of gender-neutral pronouns in relation to non-binary people, also reached out to his broad audience of supporters and during the podcast Critics.
“If you are waiting to learn from people who do not make mistakes or have no tragedy in their life, you will have to wait a long time to learn,” said the professor, commenting on whether his ideas could be “taken seriously” now after the health crisis.
“In my lectures and in my writings, I have never claimed that I am anything other than one of the people who also need to learn this lesson, these lessons. So I put myself in the group of those who needed moral improvement, ”he added.
After the Jordan-Mikhaila conversation was published, many fans of the professor rushed to share their joy that Jordan has finally returned to public life and is visibly feeling better.
“It’s like seeing a long-lost friend again after decades. Stay strong, never give up and remember when happiness hits you enjoy it. We love you, we miss you, “wrote a YouTuber.
“The second I saw JP on my screen, I burst into tears. We all owe so much to this man and he doesn’t ask anything of us, ”added another.
Nice to have you back, Dr. Peterson. I hope for all the best after the hell you went through
