many people don’t realize drug and alcohol abuse is a band-aid.
it’s often used as a cover for depression or other mental health issues.
i always question when someone can’t function without getting high or drunk.
there is always “something” behind it all.
folks use it to help quiet the sounds of the sexuality that their questioning.
the former shamed mayor of tallahassee,
had a lot to admit in a recent video he uploaded on his instagram.
we talked about his past alleged antics ( x here ).
well he had an 11:11 minute update for us…
*Andrew talked about how he went to rehab for alcoholism.
He felt like a failure after he lost the race for governor of florida.
It really took a mental toll on him so he suppressed his depression by drinking to cope.
He wore a mask to look busy and tried looking like he was living his best life.
in doing so,
He put on an image of perfection to the public.
He claims that he suffered the fate of his actions by rumors,
some true and others to be false.
He goes on about blm,
and folks need to confront what is holding them down.
He thanks his wife because she is standing by his side through his journey.
at this time,
He “can’t be all the things he would like to be”,
but he needs to be those things for himself.
i wonder how much people turned on him?
his ig is the “mask” of all these supporters/celebs when he was running for governor.
did any of them reach out to see how he was doing?
he sounds like many people i know tbh.
a lot of masks were snatched clean off by the rona.
the moment they couldn’t fool everyone with pics/videos of “i’m outside”,
they really had nothing else to use as a band-aid.
i always say you never know what demons people are silently dealing with.
i didn’t expect andrew to use this as a “come out” moment tbh.
i’m sure his therapist urged him to do this for his own healing.
he got publicly shamed and went rogue rather quickly.
now that his scandal has died down,
and so much other shit has happened,
this is a great time for him to speak to the public on what he’s been up to.
i’m glad he was able to share part of his truth.
i’m sure he never thought he’d be outed for his antics,
but we often have to hit rock bottom before we can find who we are.
i really think there was more forces involved of why he was outed:

i’m interested to see where he takes his life next.
i’m sure this will open up doors to help him find a career in self help/motivation.
pastor is usually a good fallback career.
i’ll allow it.
lowkey: he looks like he lost a lot of weight.
he looks like he is back to his 2018 size again:
it looks good on him.
at least his wife stood by his side.
i noticed he had the pictures up in the background to remind us.
