“I never thought that I was going to get divorced. I didn’t want to get divorced. I didn’t want to be a person who is divorced. I don’t want to be in a family area with my kids. And it makes me upset, because it meant that I wasn’t who I thought it to be. And it was very painful and very disappointing for me,” he said.
“Divorce is very painful, and the alcohol is too much for me. They are just. If there is something that your child is suffering from a discomfort level that it is not easy to overcome, it is not easy to forgive, it is not easy to forget. It’s hard,” he said.
“You’re not going to cause injury or pain to a child, and all of the pain. The pain is part of life. I have the comfort of a little to do with it. I’m doing the best I can do… it Has to be good enough for you. I don’t have a choice. I’m supposed to be the man you want to be at this moment in time. I don’t have any more room for failures of this kind,” he said.
