Vice Ganda recalled how he tried to commit suicide when he was 19 years old due to depression.

The comedian shared what he went through during his adolescence and how it made him realize that God has better plans for each person.

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 said.

The Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation named Vice Ganda as the Phenomenal Box Office Star for the fourth year in a row.

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 said.

I am just so blessed na hinarang ng Diyos ‘yung pangit kong trip noong panahon na iyon dahil kung hindi, hindi ko na-experience lahat ng napakagagandang bagay sa mundo na nararanasan ko ngayon,” he added.

Vice Ganda is hoping his story would inspire the youths 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. (MNS)
