“My parents divorced when I was only two years old. Until this day I have no idea why they broke up. We were a family with seven kids. When my parents split up we all got separated. Part of us went to live with our mum, and the other half with our dad. The separation damaged all of us and we had a lot of problems growing up. When puberty hit some of my brothers started using hard drugs. It was very difficult to see them go through addiction like that. I remember one time, a friend of mine was staying over and my brother came home at 6am. I’m not sure what kind of drugs he had been using but he was extremely aggressive. He got violent for no reason and I didn’t know what to do. Now when we talk about it, I can laugh because it’s in the past but back then, it was so fucking hard.”
