Back in July, BJ empathized with his father. A young dad himself, BJ posted he could now relate to his father’s struggles as a young parent:

Time really flies man. I’d give anything to go back to this family trip, it was pretty much the only one where we were all together. So much has happened since then. Life has thrown more curve balls then I could’ve possibly imagined as the 11 year old you see pictured. As I get closer to the age my dad was here, I’ve grown through my own experience with becoming a father too early, and it’s given me a new found empathy for what he must have been going through. Not that he didn’t have his own demons, but the added pressure of being a dad, and a husband, while balancing super stardom couldn’t have been easy. I just want you to know I understand man, and though we don’t speak much these days, I still love you with all my heart, and I just want you to be happy. I still pray one day, we can all be one again, and just enjoy some time. Til then. 🤘🏾#tbt
