Return Home

Publicerades den 19 okt 2020
I have returned home to Toronto after spending much of the last eighteen months in hospitals. I am hoping that my health has improved to the point where I can start producing original content again. Thank you to all who are watching for your support over the course of this trying time. I hope that you all are coping with the COVID crisis successfully.

  • Wishing you well, and thankyou for all the work you have done and continue to do.

  • I am on benzo's tried to stop it slowly and felt like i was dying. It is often said that it is harder than heroin to get off.

  • Thanks for all Dr Peterson¡

  • Glad to have you back!!!

  • Jordan, we are with you! Always!!!

  • Creat come back brother it fills my heart with joy to see you again :) But please don't push religión on us, i love the wisdom, the spiritual some moral ethics of religion but they had enough time to inspire humanity.... Tell us more about CG jung, how to start a Star Trek like civilization, how to get the good elites to govern us, talk to us about how we can teach or implement ethics to Ai... You know dude religion was only a cover up for first contact Rule defiance by couple of aliens who appreciated human females (boobs).... Thank you Jordan. Much love!

  • Glad you're back Jordan! Just found your work not long ago, glad you're doing better and are back at it! Looking forward to future books, lectures and videos from ya 😁

  • Dr. Peterson, Thank you for your authenticity and honesty in this message. To me, honesty is, "being ONE-with-what-IS". Your oneness with your reality and willingness to share publically, is nothing short of inspiring to me. Thank you for expressing gratitude for your family, friends, work and recovery process. Real heroes walk among us and you are one of them! God bless you for continuing to fulfill the measure of your creation. I look forward to learning more through your life journey. 🙏🙏🙏

  • Only the crazed can dislike such a man. I hope you fully recover in time JP!

  • Thank You For Everything You Have Done .From A Young Mind in Romania

  • Sir, you are a brave, brave man. Your work, pointing out the wrong and cruelties perpetuated by current feminism is invaluable to the world. Rest. You deserve it. Thank you, you give me hope that the entire world hasn't given in to evil feminist desires to ruin relationships and belittle men.

  • Wonderful to see you back Dr. Peterson. The courage that you have shown through this extremely trying time and the love and strength of your wonderful family as they helped you through the worst times is an inspiration to us all; as have been your book and the hundreds of SEnewss videos you have gifted to the world. All the best as you re-engage with your work and plans for the future.

  • You are a precious man and I am thankful for your humble honesty. I'm glad you are recovering and very much looking forward to hearing your analysis of Proverbs. I am a Christian and the study of wisdom in God's Word over the last 40 years has been a beautiful and enlightening journey for me. We all have so much to learn.

  • From a Muslim living in Jordan, who has Palestinian Origin (where Jesus was born); I pray to God (Allah) that you will get much better and healthier sooner and happier with your family memebrs and friends. My sincere prayers go out to you and your family, and also for all people on this planet who need to get in a better place, healtheir, happier, and wealthier.... Amen.

  • I am so happy to see you are back! Since I found you in SEnewss I was mesmerized by all of your ideas and wisdom of how humans behave and move. I am a woman of faith and I could tell that God had you on a path to his discovery without you knowing it. I truly believe that what you have experienced with this illness was part of that difficult path towards even more wisdom and enlightenment. I know in my heart he will heal you completely and will make you stronger and wiser than before can’t wait to hear about your interpretations of the provers! Remember that he is guiding you so if you trust in him you will not fail and your anxieties will no more be a problem to your soul.

  • Thanks for helping us all to understand ourselves better, I love to you doing better, as someone that went through something very similar, there is a better tomorrow for you :)

  • U suffering cause ur baseless Islamophobia learn lesson dude you will continue to suffer as long you anti Islamophobic

  • I wonder how this year would look like from perspective of let's say one decade... looks like "all the hell broke loose" in last few months. I write it in December 2020. It was not too bad time for me, but what is going on with the world is crazy, gently speaking. I stopped follow JBP somewhere at January and I just got back now. Didn't realise his health issues at all. And now I feel very happy he's getting better and making new plans as we going to need his wisdom now like never before. Thanks God.

  • All the warnings, over countless years, of the "Medical" Industrial Complex fall on deaf ears as each new monopoly version conquers again and again. We can simply trust proper authority, officials and credentials? "Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth." ~ Albert Einstein You reinforced that with us, Dr. Peterson. That and NO Free Passes to proper authority. Real science (or medical) never operate under monopoly, authority, censorship, shaming, bullying... Einstein reminded us of that often, as well as Orwell, Eisenhower and countless others.

  • Deus abençoe você e dê paz a tua alma.

  • I´m returning to my my hometown after working in another country, failing and developing alcoholism. i´m 40 now and return, with my dad paying for the flat in my hometown. It honestly feels like a total defeat, i hope your wisdom can help me to rebuild me and my life. i just found you and your channel recently. To see such a great Person like you battling defeat yourself gives me a new perspective. Failing is unfortunataly always an option.

  • I’ve been taking Xanax (only as prescribed ) for over 20 years now and refuse to go up on my dosage even though my body & brain have developed a tolerance and are putting me through major daily anxiety, depression, and brain fog (putting it lightly)! Ive finally found a fantastic psychiatrist who is helping me to slowly wean myself off. I’ve had one hospitalization for heart issues and other withdrawal symptoms. It has been such an uphill battle, working daily to reduce micro milligrams off my 4 mg/day, it has taken me over 1 & 1/2 years to get down to 3.5mg a day! This is not a good quality of life, and I hope that science focuses on how to help people such as myself. If I were to cold turkey, being in my 60’s, and considering that I’ve been prescribed Xanax XR for so many years, it would probably kill me. So every day I face the struggle, please help shed light on this extremely important health issue. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.

  • Dear Dr. Peterson, You are a remarkable human being. Please except my sincere appreciation for your survival. Aloha from Hawai'i.

  • Looking forward to Proverbs Jordan! Prayers going out for you. I believe you have an important God-given purpose on our planet. He's not done with you yet, my friend. Keep your head up! :)

  • In the dialogue the universe has with itself it would be of little consequence if the terrors of addiction, of anxiety, and of the darkest places of depression happened only to those with little or no window on deeper truth. That God (and that word has extremely personal meaning to me) chooses to explore the deepest possible challenges to courage in his apertures through people of enlightenment, in his Abrahams, his Issacs, his Jacobs, and his Moseses- and now through you- is, when you can look back at the precipice as I do, a kind of honor. Every day after that is a privilege and an opportunity to escape the symbolic and conceptual traps illustrated in the mindset of the world around us. I am excited that you are exploring Biblical themes. A depth is there few really approach, largely because they keep fighting ancient wars way off the path of what is really being discussed under the surface. I am here, for the most part new to your expressions of thought. That's because people keep telling me, disdainfully, that I must have gotten what I say about ideas and culture from you. It seemed well to find out more about this fellow traveler. Now, you are not merely an abstraction to me. You are real

  • Welcome back Dr. Peterson and may the grace and mercy God has granted you be multiplied greatly in your future endeavors. Your voice of reason and conciseness is needed in our current world full of irrational rhetoric.

  • Avoid drugs.

  • In an interview you said you did not believe in God, now you are saying "with God's grace and his mercy"! I wish you a speedy recovery.

  • God bless you Jordan Peterson, may you're health be better in the future

  • I am sooo glad you are back online! You are amazing - Thanks. And you can be so thankful for your daughter. Just had a case where the entire family left her alone with her Benzo issues!

  • Blessings and my best wishes to you Dr. i want you to know you have been an inspiration and a good teacher to us all and a defender of truth and free speech. God Bless you.

  • Thank GOD and all the Doctors, and Family members that were with you during your recovering. We missed you so much. Our world is falling apart and you are one of the ones we need to bring back sanity to this crazy society. I hope and pray you stay with us for many many years. Welcome Back :)

  • Much love Jordan

  • Love and well wishes from Colorado. Keep fighting the good fight, Sir and God Bless.

  • dr jordan peterson reminds me of xavier from xmen.hope my country looked after you well!

  • I really hope that your situation improves. You are a treasure of the world.

  • The Emporor blesses you..The Omnisiah watches over you..

  • homie made 5M just in south korea...JBP, I love you, and i am so happy youve seen the fruits of your labor

  • I strongly empathize with Jordan. I've seen first hand what that evil drug can do to someone. My mother was unable to win that battle against it. At least you have identified how big of a problem it is before it's too late. I hope the best for you, I really do.

  • Looking forward to studying Proverbial wisdom with you

  • Please stop listening to your daughters idiotic ideas.

  • Jordan, idk if you read comments, but look into the movies "Gods Not Dead" the first and second.

  • You're amazing and remarkable! God took extra care making you and your beautiful soul. God bless you and your family ♡

  • That's a great idea to do videos on Book of Wisdom, I'm looking forward to it! Grace to you!

  • Benzo Drug Addiction and Heroin Addiction are no joke. 20 years of experience

  • Welcome back to life Sir

  • 🙏🏼

  • Who is this guy and why was it recommended, YT Mother? Unbelievable, I tell ya.

  • Those who suffer like you have suffered, take the masterclasses in Human Pain. Now I believe that your teachings about life are not just bright, well-articulated ideas. Intellectual masturbation, thinking for the pleasure of a well-formed thought... Now that you have seen hell, you will face a person in pain and be able to say: "I know. I really know."

  • Happy that you are back. God bless you as you continue to heal and become whole.

  • the return of the king!

  • I would only ask that Peterson allow certain concessions in the realm of self-sufficiency and self-help. This wasn’t something he survived alone, he had his wife and daughter with him.

  • Good to see you back. Keep safe and ensure you put yourself first sometimes. The content and research can wait if it needs to.

  • Benzos are the devil

  • Missed you. So happy you're back. Hope your mornings get better over time. I'm reluctant to put it this way, but the world needs you. Bless you. Take care. I look forward to seeing you on the many various podcasts, with other like minds, challenging the status quo. Anyone who provides hope for the world should be cherished.

  • I wish you the best my man

  • Wow!!! The number of freaking views on this simple video is absolutely off the chain

  • ❤❤❤

  • So good to hear you!! May the good Lord strengthen you in mind, body and spirit....from India

  • I think this whole benzo thing was just a cover for his early onset Alzheimer's

  • Sir, I can relate. I had a seven year addiction to benzos that almost killed me. I was so frustrated I tried to kill myself. I quit cold turkey and had a seizure. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Good for you, Sir.

  • Karmic payback for -all- many of your lies. More to come, hopefully.

  • GOD bless you and your family

  • What a wonderful, honest, courageous man you are Jordan. You help so many, and face off the liars in search for TRUTH. The truth IS you will be better, there is so much love for you brother!! Thank You for doing what you do.

  • Heyy Jordan, thank u for all of your content, I'm sure u r gonna get trough it sonner than it seems! So happy to discuss ur thoughts here in Brazil ;)

  • Dr. Peterson. I am glad you have recovered enough to begin working again. We have needed your insight in this challenging time. But please take care and ease into it. I hope I speak for others when I say I'd rather have you for ten to twenty more years than ten to twenty more months. God bless and looking forward to you

  • Thank God that you are yet alive and hopefully your health continues to improve. Thank you for your passion

  • Really good to hear you speak! About three years ago now i had recovered from a debilitating health issue...some would call it a "spontaneous recession"; those who know me know it was something greater; Someone greater! My heart and prayers goes out to you and your family! Really look forward to your progress!

  • You’re doing at lot of good work Continue to trust and move forward. I hope you feel better every day.

  • You should just become a pastor, all you really do is preach your singular way of looking at the world anyways.

  • love you Jordon!

  • This man is going out of his personal well being, to continue enriching our lives in every way, shape, or form he could think of, and eager to do so. Mad respect, bless up. 🐐 *goat emoji*

  • God bless you and your’ve helped so many. Be strong!!! We love you❤️

  • It's too unfortunate that the capitalistic pharmaceutical drugs and it's overlooked side effects deteriorated your physical health so drastically. I am happy you had the money to do all these treatments in different countries with top notch doctors. Wishing you well recovery. 🌷

  • Personally I owe you a lot, because one of your speeches helped me to get myself together when I felt like there's no way out. Hope you get better soon. Every day it gets a little easier

  • JBP, You do not know me, in the flesh, nor I you, but I only wish your continued good health after this horrible year. Please come back, but come back at your healthy pace. There is no hurry we will still be here!

  • YES SIR!!!

  • Pompous, dysfunctional junkie preaching to manly lobsters. Really, anyone ready to take self-help tips from this sniffy lobster? 😂😂😂

    • @Ciara Troy you're right, Ciara. Thank you for making me see the light. Welcome back, Sir 💜 Is that better? You made this world a better place @CiaraTroy

    • I'm very sorry for whatever hardship you are going through in life that makes you feel like you need to berate others for their downfalls and hardships in life in order to feel anything. I hope you feel better and I hope that soon enough you will look back on writing this comment and realise that it didn't help anyone 💜

  • welcome back Mr peterson, hope you stay in good health

  • Go Jordan, you are a legend! (a Belgium viewer)

  • It’s great to see you back and I hope you continue to heal. It sounds like you’ve been through a nitemare.

  • Proverbs is the first book I read in the Bible. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” Prov 9:10

  • Get yourself well, as your family and friends wish. Bless you.

  • Jordan, I don't always agree with what you say (ancient civs knew about DNA! Look at the spirals!), but I wish you good health and continued mental health, because the discourse is better with you in it.

  • I am so happy to see that you are feeling better. Thank you for sharing your wisdom!

  • Welcome back, so happy that you're home finally, so sorry you went through all these challenges . and I am so excited for the new book, I will pre-order as soon as possible . thank you for all your efforts

  • Get off those meds. I’ve seen it literally ruin some of my friends lives. Tread lightly.

  • God Bless You and your lovely Family !!!!! Sincerely , Ruth Goldsmith

  • Jesus loves you. Please repent and be saved

  • watched this with tears in my eyes and I`m grateful for your life!

  • Good wishes JP. There are better days ahead. I look to you for life advice. Not that I would wish it on anybody, but It is inspiring to know that even the wisest, most intelligent, and successful people, still struggle with this problem. I have dealt with anxiety, and it can be absolutely debilitating. You can't really understand true anxiety until you have experienced it. I have a hunch that 2021 is gonna work out well for you sir.

  • Love you man Hope everything flows better and better going forward

  • Put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, Ephesians 2:8-9, KJV, Believe in the Trinity, Jesus Christ is God

  • I am so sad because he never going to be same. I am from Belgrade and i know where he was, i sow his daughter with him in restaurang but nobody came fram to them to take a picture. I wish him well

  • Welcome dear mr. Peterson...... Welcome back! Even the darkest basement seems to have a cellar..... i know! My favorite from the hebrew scriptures?
