“I’m just glad that… I don’t have to slave anymore. You know, ’cause… music was my love, and because of everything I thought had to accompany my music, it became my burden. It just got stolen from me. I said, ‘What is this? How did this thing that I love so much so easily and so quickly turn to something I loath and hate?’ And so now, you know, I understand that it was because I was measuring myself or trying to compare myself to a standard that wasn’t reality. It wasn’t the standard at all, you know.”
