“Those were the times where I was the most angry. And I was the most unkind to myself or self-righteous or all of those things. It’s improved my life drastically.

“I hope the people who do have an issue with me, can either hear that or embrace that.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Page discussed his new focus, revealing that he is embracing the ‘present moment’.

He said: “​What I want to focus on right now, and has been so extraordinary is the degree of joy that I feel, the degree of presence that I feel, I feel a way that I really never thought possible for a long, long time.

“That’s really what I’m focusing on and embracing the most. But of course, the moment can be overwhelming.”
