EJ Johnson Says His Hardest Battles Were Fought This Year In Birthday Dedication Post

It’s been a rough year for EJ Johnson but the reality star and aspiring actor says he’s managed to find his joy somehow. The son of Magic and Cookie Johnson, who has been beloved by the public for his open and outspoken persona turned 27 Tuesday and marked the occasion with a post, which appeared to allude to tragedy he suffered after the death of his best friend Lyric McHenry last year.

“Today I’m 27!” EJ shared in an instagram post dedicated to his special day. “This has certainly been the most painful and difficult year of my life as well as one of great growth power strength and beauty,” he continued. “After losing the most important person in my life I wasn’t sure if I would be able to laugh smile or find joy again. But through all the darkness an uncertainty I put myself first. I found joy in searching my soul and nurturing my gifts and talents. I laughed with my friends and family who kept their hands on me during this process. I smiled when I had major personal breakthroughs and successes. I had to shed certain situations and people in order to get here but I’m better because of it.

Today I’m 27 ! This has certainly been the most painful and difficult year of my life as well as one of great growth power strength and beauty. After losing the most important person in my life I wasn’t sure if I would be able to laugh smile or find joy again. But through all the darkness an uncertainty I put myself first. I found joy in searching my soul and nurturing my gifts and talents. I laughed with my friends and family who kept their hands on me during this process. I smiled when I had major personal breakthroughs and successes. I had to shed certain situations and people in order to get here but I’m better because of it. My acting coach @tasha4realsmith said recently “through our greatest pain comes our greatest work” and Im greatest work is soon to come. I’ve never felt more beautiful, powerful, intelligent, innovative, sexy, creative and comfortable in my own skin than i do today. So I hope everyone who reads this finds comfort and power in these words. Self exploration is one of most precious gifts you can receive and it’s never too late to start. NOW, if you’ll excuse me it’s for me to put on my crown and get to work 👸🏾 #teamthis

EJ’s message also signaled that he’s prepared to step his game up this year:

“My acting coach @tasha4realsmith said recently “through our greatest pain comes our greatest work,” and Im greatest work is soon to come,” he recalled in the instagram message. ” I’ve never felt more beautiful, powerful, intelligent, innovative, sexy, creative and comfortable in my own skin than i do today. So I hope everyone who reads this finds comfort and power in these words. Self exploration is one of most precious gifts you can receive and it’s never too late to start. NOW, if you’ll excuse me it’s for me to put on my crown and get to work 👸🏾 #teamthis

We’re so glad that he’s learned to work through life’s challenges and come out stronger because of them. The Johnson family also had a scare this year when his sister Elisa narrowly escaped a violent home invader while vacationing with friends.
