TikTok’s famous content creator Chris Olsen turned his life around by escaping childhood problems- a journey that is an inspiration for many.
Chris Olsen is a 25-year-old, who joined TikTok in 2020. He has around 10 million followers on TikTok and also owns his coffee line named Flight Fuel. The snippets Olsen now shares from his life on TikTok are not reflective of how the creator’s life has always been.
Olsen went through quite a difficult childhood, where he battled alcoholism and watched his parents split up. However, despite hardships, he managed to come out stronger and make a life for himself, instead of allowing his past to tie him down.
When Olsen was only 14 his mother admitted herself to rehab to fix her addiction. But this issue strained the entire family causing Olsen’s parents to split up in the same year. When he turned 16, he started drinking alcohol. Within a year he realized that he had developed serious alcoholism.
At age 18, Olsen recognized his addiction and went to rehab. He became sober for a few months, but unfortunately relapsed when he started college. He then had to put his education on hold to start directing all his efforts into rehab. This time he finally succeeded in battling his addiction and is now sober for 4 years.
This story is inspirational for all teenagers, who might think that if their early years were rocky their entire life will also be that way. This simply is not true, as we see from Olsen’s life who from battling addictions now has millions of followers, his coffee brand, and is walking red carpets.
