Saturday’s are for confessions.
When I was younger there was a time when I didn’t want to feel anything. I think it started when my parents split. I figured numbing myself to the pain was the best way to cope. Filling my self with drugs and alcohol and shutting down to the world. It took me a long time to realize that being the stoic unfeeling robot Rob isn’t what’s best for me or the people around me. Now, I feel a great deal. Love, lust, hope, fear, pain, delight: it’s all there. Maybe it’s simply a part of growing up. I like to think that I want to make the world a better place. And before you change the world you have to change yourself. It took an incredible amount of bravery to look at my life and say, ‘Damn, I need to make a change.’ But it’s been one that has been extremely rewarding.
