This morning I woke up to police officers, informing me that my only brother....had been in a car accident and died.With the nature of the events, and signs/things leading towards it possibly being suicide..... I am beyond devastated.
Tomorrow, I was set to start touring.
I don't know what to do. I don't want to drop out of the tour, but right now I just don't know.
I've been told many times already to do it for my brother, go out hoop for my brother, and do my best.
There will be a lot of travel back and forth the first couple of weeks, so I will be home evenings, early mornings sometimes...
Is it wrong for me to go?
I want to thank everybody for your answers and support. Seriously they helped me more than you probably even realize.
I did end up starting the tour, and I've had both family and friends come to every show to support me. It's helped me to start healing, take my mind off of things as well as put a smile on the face of my family members in our time of tragedy.
The team I'm touring with have been extremely supportive and understanding as well, so far the experience have been very positive and very worth it, so once again thank you everybody.
This is a decision that ultimately you have to make for yourself, but I will say that my sister was killed about a month ago and hooping was such a release for me. It's so easy to get lost in it and really center your thoughts. I hope whatever choice you make, it leads you to amazing new opportunities.
It's hard to say what exactly you're going through, but I absolutely relate and I want you to know that everyday gets a little easier, though things can't be the same. My heart really goes out to you, girl. I wish the best for you and your family.
