~Nicholas O'bannon~ New York, NY
When I was a child I went through a lot. I suffered a lot of emotional trauma. By the time I was a teenager I felt like I had been a victim and I did what I thought was fighting back. What I didn’t realize then was, that the things I did were only furthering my trauma, and eventually would ruin my life!
I started to rebel (fight back) at the age of 12, and nobody taught me or disciplined me. My Father would yell and scream about what not to do but there wasn’t any teaching going on. I started to drink and smoke. I cursed, lied, stole and cheated. I attempted to seek help, I tried to get revenge and ruin lives. I would have done anything to be bad; I thought that was who I was. I hated myself, and everyone around me. I also felt like everyone hated me. But John pulled me out in so many ways Thanks Bro!!!
