A Moment To Breathe

The weeks following my meeting with American Primetime TV were a whirlwind of emotions and decisions. I had to face the reality that my pursuit of success had taken over my life and left me with nothing else. So, I made the difficult decision to move out of Nicole’s house and back to my mother’s. It wasn’t an easy choice, and it left Nicole devastated, but I needed to find some sort of balance in my life. I took a job working retail security, working at high-end stores like Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga. It was a humbling experience, but it gave me a chance to focus on my business dealings while still making a living. My days were filled with constant phone calls and emails, but at least I had a steady income. Moving back to Grove Street was a blessing in disguise. It gave me a chance to reconnect with my childhood friends, who had always been my rock. Zo and I, in particular, had been struggling to maintain our friendship amidst the chaos that my dreams brought forth. Bud and Roach Show had become more of a chore than a passion project, and we needed to find a way to rekindle the spark. I also used this time to work on my marriage with Brenna. My mom would allow her to visit me, and we took advantage of that to talk and figure things out. It wasn’t easy, but we were both willing to put in the work to make our relationship stronger. My time in Queens with Nicole was necessary, as her chemotherapy and my free-fall into depression had required some sort of a therapeutic outlet, and it was a transition that left us both in tears. But the vision I had for my life was within my reach, and although I wouldn’t be around as often, we remained in constant communication, continually looking for ways to grow our collective brands as I got my life in order.
