This one is for those who come from a chaotic, unstructured childhood. Those who relate to having no adults willing to pay attention to a kid who didn't feel like they fit in. Robert Delude is now the host of the None of Your Business Podcast, but he joins me to talk about how a chaotic young life led to years of addiction to heroin, toxic partners and self-sabotage. Listen in to hear what really got the wheels of change to start turning.....for good.
Robert Delude is the host of the None of Your Business Podcast, where he talks to his entrepreneurial guests about anything but their business (you can check out an earful I gave him about my own personal struggles and successes in an upcoming episode), but today, I flip the script on him to get him to talk about why he is so focused on helping others climb out of dark places in life. He shares his story of a chaotic childhood where he didn't think he fit in. It was only when he first got high at 12 yrs old that he felt better. This need to detach from his insecurities became a need to get high. This quickly turned into a decade of selling drugs, toxic relationships and hiding his true self from anyone he knew.
It was only when an older friend who got recovery took him under his wing was he really able to stay on a path through recovery. He is now forging ahead, feeling more confident, working on himself, fleeing from people who tap into his codependency or ignite his self-sabotaging.
His story isn't finished, but it's an inspiration as to what can happen and how good life can be when you start to fight the dark emotions, keep sticking with what you know works, and allow others to care about you.
