In his words;
“I couldn’t take care of anyone.
“There were times when I wasn’t just broke – I was broke and hopeless. I used to steal food. I used to go to my aunt’s house just so she could give me food to take away.
“I just felt like, what’s the point of existing right now? You you have to remember those times. Because that person no longer exists.”
“The decision I made was not to sink into sadness. This person who can never be anything.
