Wow, we were young! 😅 👍🏼👍🏼 This was a harder conversation for me to have and open up about, but I’m grateful for my friend @jennettemccurdy for having me on her podcast "empty inside" where we talk about growing up in the industry. Check the link in Jennette’s bio! (These pictures were courtesy of her Instagram)

I think I cried my way through most of it.
How brave of David (and Jennette) to open up like this… to share his experiences with his dad, and talk about Jeff’s abusive behaviour and how it scarred him, in the hope it will help someone else.
It’s a miracle to me that David didn’t just crash and burn and leave the industry altogether, like so many other young performers who are thrust in the spotlight at a young age by overbearing stage parents who continue to try and control them.
I admire so much that he sought help, and is still working hard to slay all those demons… and that he’s so compassionate towards his dad that he’s tried to better understand him.
I’m listening to Therapy Sessions now and, boy, do those songs ever take on even more meaning.
In David’s last Christmas tour, he talked about dealing with negative voices… I guess now we know where those come from. 😦 😦 😦 😦
How about you guys??? Thoughts???!!!!
