My parents got divorced, my brother did jail time for 4 years, I was sexually abused by a man when I was 5, and remember many times saying to school teachers, principals and my parents that I wish I were dead.
Our mind and emotions play tricks on us when we feel we have no purpose or vision, community or contribution in life. And when I started seeking information and inspiration on how to create a better life for myself, that’s when everything started to change for the better.
I put all of this negative and lonely energy into my dream of being a professional athlete, and one day, an Olympian. I went on to play Arena Football for one season, but a career ending injury shattered my identity. I didn’t know who I was without sports.
You are love. The Coach
