For those who have been following Chris Brown up until now, you can attest for him that he’s been through the most. From the situation with Rihanna, to being in-and-out of jail, we’ve learned by watching him that even being a celebrity won’t stop you from the consequences of your actions.
But throughout the many storms, we’ve watched Brown rise into a mature adult. He’s realized he’s made mistakes and takes to Instagram to own up to them. He basically gives insight on everything we’ve had questions about.
For example, what was the deal with Rihanna?
“I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy.” But when I ask if that’s how he thinks of himself when he looks back at that time, he snaps back, “No, not at all” as if the description had been mine and not his. “Cos you can talk with all my girls that I did mess with before, and it’s never been a violent history.” Then he switches again: “But at the same time, I learned from it, and it was almost like… I wouldn’t say it happened for a reason, but it was something to trigger my mind to be more of a mature adult. To handle myself in situations, don’t throw tantrums, don’t be a baby about it.”
What was anger management like?
“I think the actual class I went to was a little bit sexist. It was beneficial because it made me cater more to a woman’s thoughts and a woman’s needs, and how to handle situations. But the class itself, no disrespect to the class, but the class itself only tells you you’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong.”
How do you deal with haters?
“You know, whether it be naysayers, people that won’t say, ‘Hey, I like that.’ But as far as me being young, like, I don’t regret it, I love it, being able to accomplish my dreams at an early age. That’s just showing the kids that’s coming up in sixth or seventh grade, I can do this. If I really stick to it, I can do it. ‘Chris was my age when he did it.’”
Observing Brown can help you realize that sometimes a trial of events can break down your image in order to show a newer one. If Rihanna was a wakeup call, we watched as he died from his childhood ashes and rose again as a new man. He concludes with this quote:
‘I been through a lot in my life. Made a lot of mistakes along the way. But through it all I’ve always been true to myself and through God I’ve been able to take care of my family! I should regret some things but I think the lessons learned will shape me into a real man. I’m grateful and appreciative! Thank you for life!”
We’re proud of you Chris. Keep doing you. Share and comment below.
