Eduardo speaks about the importance of the documentary for his recovery process, and how did his life change after filming it.
“I share my stories because I know they help people, and in sharing it helps me. There is no shame in recovery, get it when you need it. The biggest fear I lived in was “What if people didn’t think I was happy?” If they knew I had let myself fall into such a depression that I’d turn to intravenous drug use to escape my shame.
When I learned to forgive myself, my demons didn’t haunt me anymore. I stopped judging this bruised sad boy and I learned to love him again. Because I am worthy of Love. No one deserves to live in so much pain. Help is there if you look for it. Do whatever it takes. It’s a delicate situation when discussing “secrets”. I also learned that in the secrets is where you find sickness. Living transparently has let me pass through hurdles I thought would crumble me. Progress not perfection.
“Mama, Please forgive me” exists to help others struggling with heavy drug use. Thank you Ibai Vigil-escalera a for creating this everlasting reminder. It’s with your help that I was able to be on the other side of this the fearless person I am today. I love you man, thank you“.
