Going to therapy helped me understand how all those past traumas shaped me as a man. It made me understand my role in this world and why I was the father that I was. I needed to be able to heal and forgive myself before I could be the dad that my children deserved.
“So, here I am…preparing for a secondary chapter of more basketball and books. I had no idea that God was placing me into a more pivotal position in the grand scheme of things.”
“While waiting until I could buy myself some furniture, my son and I had some of the best times sleeping on pallets in the floor. The truth is time spent with your kid is the most important thing about building that relationship.”
He wasn’t the television father that always sat you down and said profound things, and taught lessons. But I saw him get up and go to work and come home to us every day. That kind of consistency and stability is what I want to be for my kids.
