Paulo tuloy ang laban para sa mga biktima ng ‘depresyon’
Isa sa mga celebrities na masasabing advocate ng mental health awareness ay ang Kapamilya hunk na si Paulo Avelino.
Muli, nanawagan ang aktor sa pamamagitan ng Instagram sa lahat ng mga inaatake ng depresyon at matinding kalungkutan na huwag sarilinin ang mga pinagdaraanang hamon at problema sa buhay.
“RARELY do I share personal stuff on my social media accounts but I think its time I talked about this dark period in my life because I know that someone out there is going through the same thing.
“I want you to know that everybody has issues and sometimes you seeing other people have them will help you cope with your own.
“Years back I found myself in a place where I only saw one way out. I went through a spiralling journey of depression and suicidal thoughts. Where everything seemed like nothing matters anymore,” simulang pahayag ng binata.
Pagpapatuloy pa niya, “Locked myself at home, turned down almost every job that came in and shut myself off from work, friends, family, the world. I am introvert. And as an introverted person I was so used to keeping my thoughts to myself. Even when I wanted to share stuff, I truly didn’t know how to. I didn’t know how to voice out all these feelings and thoughts inside me.
“So here I am sharing with you guys that even the people who appear to be okay or who seem to ‘have it all’ might be going through their own struggles, fighting their own demons,” aniya pa sa kanyang IG post.
Panawagan niya sa lahat ng followers, “Please, dont be afraid to reach out to your friends, family, and loved ones. Often times people will brush it off thinking it’s nothing to be concerned about or it’s a small matter. Don’t be scared to voice out what you feel no matter how hard it is. Never lose HOPE.”
Bago ito, inamin din ni Paulo na may kaibigan siya na nagpakamatay noon, “All those messages and time I selfishly demanded are now regrets and baggages I would carry my whole life. Thank you! I hope you are resting peacefully. I am living because of the hope and wisdom you engraved in me.”
Bukod kay Paulo, ilan pa sa mga artistang umaming inatake at nakipaglaban sa depresyon at anxiety attach ay sina Anne Curtis, Heart Evangelista, Sharon Cuneta, Claudine Barretto, Sarah Geronimo, Gab Valenciano, JM de Guzman, Ryza Cenon, Kris Aquino at marami pang iba.
