Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Scott Disick has admittedly made some bad decisions in his life, but in an interview with Men’s Fitness, the entrepreneur and dad to 1-year-old Mason Dash, says that having his mistakes broadcast for all to see actually helped him turn things around.
“I’ve definitely had a couple of low points in my life,” says Disick. “I’m sure people think it’s the worst thing in the world to relive something like that over and over on TV, but I saw it as a blessing in disguise.
“I was making excuses for running around and drinking too much,” admitted the E! reality star, revealing that he opted against entering rehab and instead decided to rely on “a good support system of family and friends” to help him with his problems.
But the one making the biggest impact on Scott is the tiniest (and cutest) member of that support system; his son, Mason.
I realized I didn’t want to wake up 10 years from now and have a son I didn’t know,” says Disick.
Scott also tells the magazine that staying fit proved to be a great distraction for him, and helped him to see himself in a more positive light.
“Whether I was running on the beach or swimming a few laps in the pool, I started to feel better about myself,” says Scott. “After a few months of staying healthy, it got easier to see there was a better life out there, and I didn’t want to look back on the other one.”
Now, Disick is worrying a lot less about how others perceive him, and more about serving as a positive role model to his son.
“I don’t care how people feel about me, as long as I feel good about the new me,” Disick says, adding, “It’s nice to be on the right track.”
