I was going through a lot of scary times filled with instability, and I still struggle with that in my life, to be honest... Just trusting people, having a stable home life. I’m still trying to get over that. But at the root of things, I know... God has a plan and purpose for all of our lives. I feel like understanding that really brought me out of the darkness I was going through and continue to go through sometimes… It has gotten a lot better. But in hard times, it’s who and how I lean on.
If people ever want to know why I have good morals, why I don’t sleep around or drink or do drugs, why I choose to walk a really clean life and clean path, they can ask, … I embrace everybody. That’s the only way life can be lived. I think I will always be that way, no matter what happens or where I am in the world.
I went from one hell to another, many nights, they’ll place you with whoever has a house open. I’ve been in crazy houses, housing projects. I was with a woman who wanted babies. So I had to sleep in a baby bunk one night. It was scary. I didn’t know who I was going to end up with. I didn’t know if there were any men in the house that were going to rape me. I bounced around because most people wanted young kids… I was rejected out of many houses.
