Please note that this episode contains brief but frank discussion about drug use and its consequences.
It was not always sunshine and rainbows in our relationship, but I didn’t have much of a backbone. I didn’t have much of an understanding that I was capable. I was so far from my family and because of our lifestyle. He made a lot of money and I didn’t really cause as a hairdresser you have to start over. I kind of really depended on him financially. He would want to live really lavish but I would have to pay half which was a lot harder on me because marginally I was broke.
And so there was just a lot of power that I did not have in our relationship and the way that I am living was not conducive to my morals. I think that the margin of not living in line with your morals whether its laziness, lethargy, procrastination, addiction, you know whatever, I think that margin is where depression happens and anxiety. And I think that that is really where I lived at that time.
