I literally have wrote, drafted and deleted a million post since i last posted in november of last year. to be honest, i had ultimately made the decision to retire immannyiroc. i’d be lying if i said i ever expected so many people to like what i do, and it seemed like as the more i grew on instagram my personal and real life suffered.
my relationships were falling apart, my health was declining, priorities became blurred and just lost focus on what’s important. i fell into deep depression and in a really dark time in life, where some days i questioned my will to live. i started focusing on the what if’s, became consumed by the past and emotions.
so if you’re reading this post, listen to me carefully. don’t ever let anyone or anything consume you, not the past, emotions or even thoughts of the future. do nothing more but learn a lesson from your past mistakes, and use your emotions to fuel yourself to accomplish anything you set your mind to.. it doesn’t matter if no one believes in you. believe in you and don’t ever let anyone bring you down. regardless of what anyone else says you’re beautifully made, and powerful beyond measure. no one can stop you but, you.
I’ve had a lot going on, and i’ve honestly had a hard time finding inspiration. this music thing all started as a hobby to be completely honest. i never expected people to embrace me in such ways i’ve seen.
the past couple of months, i’ve been working on a full album and had been contemplating after releasing it and headlining the show with retrakx, i would retire from music for good. however, after a google search of immannyiroc (lol) i came across @freakysarahofficial ‘s portrait of me. i just want to say it means the world, that you felt inspired enough to draw me. you reminded me the whole reason i started making music in the first place. i always said if i could inspire just one person, all my efforts are worth it. thank you!
