“All of us got here from these loopy balls of emotional abuse and neglect and coping with issues, however we didn’t know what the names of the issues had been,” Corey continues. “The one factor that saved us was the truth that getting collectively made us really feel like we weren’t alone. And it made us really feel that if we had one another as help and as buddies and as someone to speak to, perhaps we may work our method via it. And in that point, I was uncovered to the whole lot – a lot new music, a lot completely different music, a lot new literature, motion pictures. It was the catalyst for the whole lot that I am now.”
