This is another Clubhouse guest acquisition. Robert's wife reached out to me after hearing me speak about my story in a Clubhouse room. She felt that his story could help people and himself from sharing it on my show. It is a great comeback story and I hope that it impacts people and lets you know that you aren't alone and that you could turn your mess into your message too. * Robert's Bio: * I’m 33 from Columbus Ohio I’m a dump truck driver ( I love what I do fortunately). Married with 5 children 3 teens from a previous relationship and 2 with my current wife. * In a nutshell, lived with my father and his wife for most of my childhood 3-13 and it was the worst ten years of my life being severely physically and mentally abused by my step mother. She’s done things to me as a child that are unimaginable even for the 90’s. * Move forward to around 13 children services finally got wind and moved me in with my mother and stepfather. After 2 or so years my mother was admitted into a psych facility and I was kicked to the streets at 15. I received my high school diploma at 15 and started working met my now ex and that’s when the long story starts. * Had a child found out in the hospital he wasn’t mine (he’s half Jamaican so it was pretty obvious pretty fast) went into a spiral after a few years discovered opiates as an escape ended up homeless and living in abandoned houses and eventually in prison which turned everything around for me. * Mett my now wife and have been sober since 2/14/14 and have a career I love. I make amazing money live in a great town in Ohio. I have a nice house nice vehicles and live mostly stress free. My ex and her family all get along we’re honestly one big extended family. My current wife and my ex will even take the kids and go do things so everything has fell into place where I think it’s supposed to be. * I’m in a place now where I’m glad all the Bull that has happened to me, has happened. I wouldn’t change anything no blood sweat or tears because I feel like things would now be different. But there is allot to fill in between all this that’s pretty crazy. * * Here is where you can find Robert: * Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/19r.m.g87/ * Twitter: https://twitter.com/19grimshaw87 * * Book Suggestion: Dream Catcher * Podcast Suggestions: Joe Rogan * * Buy Me A Coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/pozapoze * * Please Help Support My Vision Here: * If you like what I'm doing and creating and have been wondering how you can get involved and help support my vision.
