It’s no secret that Tiffany Haddish had one of the most incredible glow ups in Hollywood history. The comedian went from living in her car to being a breakout star in Girl’s Trip. Though it certainly feels good to be living out her dreams, Haddish says she still struggles emotionally with the wounds of her past.

Haddish tweeted that she sometimes “wakes up in the middle of the night so hurt,” and can’t figure out if memories from the past or future ambitions are keeping her up at night. She does, however, thank God for “letting me wake up and cry away the hurt” to purge and clear space for positive vibes.

While interacting with her Twitter followers, Haddish says she understands the tears to be a “removal of old beliefs and a replacement of new ones.” Whew! That’s a word. Haven’t we all been there?

Haddish has always been candid about her rough upbringing. Her mother was severely injured in a car crash when she was a child, which led to severe brain damage. Eventually, her mother became diagnosed with schizophrenia, and Haddish and her five siblings entered the foster care system where Haddish says she experience sexual and physical abuse. She credits one of her high school guidance counselors for suggesting she try her hand a comedy.

During a speech at ESSENCE’s 2018 Black Women In Hollywood event, Haddish says the silver lining in her traumatic past is being able to always see the glass half full. “Coming from the foster care system… my upbringing allows me to relate to everybody in any room,” she said. “I realized no matter where I am in the world, we all have problems we all need love and we all want to be happy. “

We love you Tiffany! Keep setting a great example and motivating us in the process.
