WHAT HAPPENED TO MINECRAFT FAMILY?
What ever you may think of why I don't do Minecraft Family is why I am here to set things straight. It is partially true that I left Minecraft Family, but let me expand further.
First of all, let me point out that I did the following:
- I started MC Family
- I recorded MC Family
- I edited MC Family
- I rendered MC Family
- I uploaded MC Family
- I marketed MC Family
- I spent my hard-earned money on MC Family for all the equipment used to run and record Minecraft
- I wrote all the descriptions for MC Family
- I made all the playlists for MC Family
- I made MC Family what it is today
So, now you can understand that MC family is my baby. I nurtured it and raised it from nothing. I have a sincere attachment to it.
I stopped Minecraft Family for very good reasons.
Relationships deteriorated, verbal abuse escalated, and neither party was happy. As you may or may not know, I played with my father, step-mother, and two step-sisters. We had some fun times, so why did it stop?
The marriage between my father and step-mother fell apart. It is not the first time that I have experienced this failure. Obviously my real mother and father's marriage fell apart too. So, I have been through this twice only this one is different. It is different because this marriage involved three children instead of just one. I started to lose respect for my father and this led to our relationship falling apart. However, the further I grew apart from my father the closer my younger step-sister got to him. They became very close and I resented that. It came to the point that I greatly disliked her and it was a wrong feeling of jealousy. In some episodes of MC Family you can feel the heavy tension in the audio. It is overwhelming. When sparky passed away, I fell under a bout of depression. I quit my job, started failing classes, and dropped out of a research scholarship program. My life was going downhill fast.
Thus, I started to see a counselor/therapist at school to help me with my problems.
Together, we worked out many things. My major support group became my girlfriend, Carflo, and my real mother. After seeing the counselor/therapist for some time, I determined that I needed to move out from an environment that caused me to be uneasy and tense. This environment consisted of hostility, verbal abuse to me and others, and moments of high instability all stemming from my father. I sat down with my father and explained my feelings as best as I could which resulted in him becoming very violent. I packed as much as I could and drove across town at 2:30am to CarFlo's home. He welcomed me and I lived with him for six months. I discovered many things about myself as I continued to see my counselor/therapist.
Now, I live on my own and have never been happier.
I have truly healed and am doing better than ever. I have all my friends, family, and subscribers to thank for that. It has been a very long road. We were given relatives; thank goodness we can choose our friends.
Please understand that I never intend to work with them again due to this history.
I have lost a chunk of really great subscribers due to my ups and downs and don't ever want that to happen again. I still do continue to produce Minecraft Family videos, but with a group of different people that create a positive impact in my life. They are my uncle, my auntie, CarFlo, and my girlfriend. I sincerely thank you for your continued support. You, my lovely attractive subscribers, have really helped me through this.
