What Journey Doesn’t Lead To The Right Place?

Hi, I’m Bobby. I used to hate myself. I was depressed, anxious, and genuinely unhappy. It took a while, but now I’m glad I can call myself, Home.

My Journey Home

 

Why “Home” Is Important To Me.

I could always return home when something was wrong. My mom and dad made an environment where I could be myself. My brothers always encouraged me to be my best self. It was actually one of my brothers that encouraged me to get a Creative Writing degree when I didn’t think it was feasible.

But like all things, this had to come to an end. When I was in high school, my parents went through a nasty divorce, and for a while after that, all I wanted was to feel at home again.   

 

Making My Way Back Home

After my parent’s divorce, I became depressed and anxious. 

I also struggled at that time with horrible health because of my Cystic Fibrosis.

After suffering in silence for years, I needed an outlet. I needed to find a way to release my depression and anxiety.

When I was in college, I found out that I could do that through spoken word poetry.

Besides my chronic illness, I was going through a hard time in my life, because my father had passed away, and I was going through the biggest heartbreak of my life at the time.

When I finally got the courage to perform a poem in front of a live audience, here in Orlando, everything changed.

Writing felt like home.

 

Continuing to follow that passion, I taught myself how to use social media to spread my spoken word poetry. On Facebook alone, my poems have grossed over a million views and have spread to even more people.

People began to reach out to me telling me how my poems helped them because of my vulnerability. 

I felt great that I was helping people, but inside I was still suffering. 

One thing led to antoher and I started to see a life coach, which transformed me so much, I wanted to do that for other people. 

I became an ACC Certified Life Coach. And that journey, finally led me home.

Realizing I AM Home

After years of life coaching, I realized what I was doing for my clients. 

I was making them feel at home within themselves. 

After my dad died, I just desperately wanted to feel home again, and I feared I’d never be able to.

With years of learning how to accept myself and learn to love myself, I began to create that space for other people.

I had become what I was searching for.

I became Home.
