Chris Brown’s advice to Ray Rice

This right here….

“To Ray, or anybody else — because I’m not better than the next man — I can just say I’ve been down that road,” Brown told MTV News‘ Sway Calloway on Thursday. “I deal with situations and I’ve made my mistakes too, but it’s all about how you push forward and how you control yourself.”

Yes, Chris. Yes. I was nervous for a little bit. But he’s absolutely correct, is about moving forward.

And this part right here:

“I think it’s all about the choices you make. With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past — not knowing how to express myself verbally and at the same time not knowing how to cope with my emotions and deal with them and understand what they are.”

“So I think help is great,” Brown added. “I still talk to my therapist twice a week, and it helps me to … if I’m frustrated and I’m dealing with something, to vent and say what I’m going through so I can hear from an actual clinical person, ‘this is how you should react,’ or ‘it’s good to feel this way because feelings, emotions, and energy are supposed to come and go. It’s not supposed to stay there, you’re not supposed to keep it inside, because it’ll bottle up and you’ll become a monster.’”

This makes me so happy. It makes me think he gets it. I’m proud of Chris Brown. When you get to the point where your test can become your testimony, and your story can be used to uplift and encourage others? That’s powerful.

Hopefully Ray Rice, and others, are listening.
