Vice Ganda, who is now an award winning actor and a famous TV host, is grateful for all the blessings that he has received. On today’s episode of “It’s Showtime,” he shared and recalled how he tried to take his life back when he was 19 years old due to depression.
He began his story by mentioning that the 46th Box Office Entertainment Awards last Sunday, which gave him the Phenomenal Box Office Star Award for the fourth year in a row.
“Meron lang akong gustong i-share. Mabilisan lang. Kagabi kasi nung nakahiga ako, sabi ko ang taray kasi apat na taon sunud-sunod, ako 'yung binigbigyan ng phenomenal box office award. I am just so blessed. Bigla akong nagka-flashback,” he shared.
“Doon sa ilang nakakaalam sa storya ng buhay ko, yung mga nakanood ng 'MMK' ko dati, na-realize ko lang, kasi nung 19 years old ako, nag-attempt ako mag-suicide sa sobrang depression. Uminom ako ng kung anu-anong gamot. Muntik akong mamatay. Nagising na lang ako nasa ospital na ako. 'Yun naman ang intention ko, ang magpakamatay dati,” he revealed.
Vice Ganda then thanked God for stopping him with his plan or else he wouldn’t be able to experience the good life that he has now. He hopes to inspire the youth, especially those who are also suffering from depression.
“Sa lahat ng mga batang may pinagdadaanan katulad ng mga pinagdaanan ko noon, kung ano man ang pangit na binabalak niyo, huwag niyong ituloy dahil may magandang plano ang Diyos. Hang on, hawak lang, kapit lang. Your situation today is not your final destination,” he said.
