Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson has been a positive figure on social media, always keeping things light, but Johnson’s catalyst for change was the 2012 domestic violence incident with ex-wife Evelyn Lozada.
On Twitter, a fan asked Johnson how he remains so positive, and he reflected back on that domestic violence incident with Lozada, where after headbutting Lozada during a heated argument, Johnson was arrested and sentenced to 12 months of probation.
The Miami Dolphins quickly released Johnson, and he never played football again.
Johnson replied to the fan and said that those three seconds changed his life forever, and after working hard to get back everything he lost afterward, it’s easy to be positive.
