And so everything that I shared, I shared in truth at that time. And certainly, I think sometimes I’m glad we don’t know the future because it impacts how we live in the present. And so you know those moments that we shared in the present were honest and true moments, and this moment is an honest and true moment and so I tend not to live in regret.”
” So I first had to say ‘Devon I love you. You’re going to be okay. You’re right where you need to be. You’re going to get through this.’ And I really tried not to worry about anybody else but just focus on the healing process, right, and committing to that because no matter what, that pain is a teacher.
