The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy – Dr. Martin L. King –
My name is Michael but my family and friends call me Myke-B. I enjoy being a father, reading, writing and working out. I guess I enjoy anything that makes me a better man.
This is how I feel about me…it is said that the hardest path for a man to follow is that in which he leads to himself. In that I strive to understand the essence of myself and how my negative environment influenced my negative perception that got me in this negative situation, that I vow to change to a positive. To do this I must review my life fully, thoroughly, and honestly. I was born into what I call or shall I say, “A very chaotic and troubled life”. I feel that I was genetically corrupted from the very start. Just on a biological basis alone, I was susceptible to developing, at least emotional difficulties. With a family history of addiction, I believe my psychological development was compromised and long before I could even think for myself, failure was already descending upon me. To say that I never had a chance at life approaching normalcy seems to be an understatement. My entire background is riddled with substance abuse, insecurities and actual abandonment.
So now tell me your truth. Staying strong is the way.
