Tributes have been pouring in since DMX took his last breath Friday … and one fan credits him with forging an understanding about her own dad who was gripped by addiction.
The woman wrote, “DMX is the reason I forgave my father after he passed for his years of addiction. We met in 2017 after I heard him from my room in the hallway of my hotel. It was all divine intervention. I ran to the hallway & met him. We spoke for 15 mins.”
She goes on … “We spoke about addiction & he encouraged me to forgive my father for what he couldn’t control. He said ‘forgive him.’ I needed to hear that. Of all people, it came from someone I grew up listening to bc of my dad … Sometimes in the moment you don’t understand the significance of a moment until it’s passed. To this day, I credit X for helping me learn forgiveness. I am praying that he gives himself grace — in this lifetime and beyond. His words and impact have left a deep legacy.”
DMX struggled with addiction over the years, but always tried to rebound to sobriety. It was a constant struggle and he slipped a number of times, but always tried … and sometimes that’s the best a person can do.
