My father was an alcoholic. I don’t know what demons he was fighting. But I do know I have my own addiction. I’m addicted to iron. I never understood why he did what he did. maybe it wasn’t for me, to understand. The same way, I guess some people don’t understand, why I do what I do. Now I’m not trying to be funny, comparing alcoholism to being an iron animal. But, to show you the parallel of having an
unhealthy addiction to having a healthy addiction. At the end of the day, you’re not bound by someone else’s mistakes
or even the past mistakes of your own. It’s about moving forward in a positive
direction. See, some people run away from the pain, they try to hide from it, people like me, we run to the pain. We embrace it, we learn to love it, we thrive off of it. Cause we know that, that pain, that struggle is only going to make you stronger, it’s only going to make you better. You’re only going to grow from it. It’s motivation, strictly motivation, to overcome, to have no fear to be better.
