Hi, I’m Bobby. Through heartbreak and death, I learned the value of love, and the beauty in life.

My Journey Home

 

Why Did This Happen?

When I was 18 years old, my girlfriend at the time got pregnant.

I was terrified.

I had no idea how I was going to raise a child, I didn’t even feel capable of taking care of myself.

When I first held that little boy in my arms, my fear went away.

I knew I would find a way to be a good father.

A year later, I would discover that he wasn’t my child.

I was more than broken.

I was depressed, hopeless, and in despair.

I didn’t know what to do.

When Will it End?

When I was 20, I received a phone call that would change my life forever. 

It was from my dad, except when I answered it, I didn’t hear his voice. It was a woman. 

She told me that my dad had fainted on the tennis court, and that he was non-responsive. 

She said an ambulance was taking him to the hospital.

By the time I arrived, my father had passed away.

In the span of a year, I lost 3 of the most important relationships in my life. I felt alone, abandoned, and worthless. 

Yet, there was some part of me that knew I could recover. Some part of me that wanted to continue moving forward. 

So…

That’s exactly what I did.

Finding Myself

By losing everyone around me, the only thing left to do was to turn inside. 

My father used to tell me, “You won’t be a good father, son, brother, anything, unless you’re good with yourself first.” 

That still sticks with me until this day. 

With that in mind, I decided to see a life coach. And eventually became one myself.

During the coaching, I did work on myself so that I could heal the trauma and wounds that were left behind from my relationships. I became more comfortable with myself. I became okay being alone. 

Ironically, I met my future wife during the group life coaching sessions I was attending. 

The Universe didn’t stop supplying me with beautiful blessings there either. She just so happened to have a happy adorable baby who is now my son. 

By doing work on myself, my whole life turned around, and the relationships I established were stronger and more healthy than the ones I held previously. 

The journey of loving myself continues. I will continue to learn to love myself more deeply, and in doing so, my life around me will change for the better.
