She was in a lot of pain when she was younger

Jenelle Evans had a lot going against her in her youth; it wasn’t extremely surprising when she got pregnant at 16 with a boy who didn’t stick around to help her out. Jenelle didn’t have a father figure, and she felt that her strict mother didn’t love her enough. Barbara was surely just trying to rein in the wildness of her teen daughter, but Jenelle didn’t see it that way. She broke down about how her pain took her to the darkest of places.
