‘ABS-CBN – GAB VALENCIANO PUMANAW MATAPOS MAGPAKAMATAY SA DEPRESSION!’
‘Yan ang nakakalokang ‘kumalat’ sa social media, na hindi talaga natiis ni Gary Valenciano, tatay ni Gab Valenciano.
Kasi naman, patayin ba ang anak mo sa social media, ano ba ang gagawin mo? Magwawala ka rin siyempre, ‘di ba?
Kaya si Gary, agad-agad na naglabas ng mensahe sa kanyang Twitter.
“ALERT: This news is going around now. THERE IS NO TRUTH TO ANY OF THIS!!! Please do not believe such news immediately!!! God bless us all!” sabi ni Gary.
Paano nga ba nagsimula ang kuwentong ito? Saan nagmula ang kuwento na nasa stage ng depression si Gab?
Anyway, a few days ago, nag-post si Gab sa Instagram niya ng photo niya na nakatakip ang mukha niya (medical/surgical mask) siya. At tungkol sa ‘pagpapakamatay’ nga ang laman ng mensahe niya.
“World Suicide Prevention Day isn’t just a day where we celebrate victories of those who have survived, instead, it is an awareness day where we magnify the importance and significance of how to deal with this growing epidemic. As of today, one person dies every forty seconds by suicide. That is not a good statistic at all. I would have been part of that statistic, twice, if not for the grace of God and love for my family and friends. Hanging from the twenty second floor of a condominium, deliberately hurting myself and substance abuse could have been the end of my story, but I believe that my failed attempts had a greater calling, and that calling is to reach out and help as many people as I can who are struggling with mental health issues, through empathy and compassion.
“Please everyone, there are people willing to listen and help. It doesn’t need to end this way. The only way to battle this is to fight together so fight with us. Surround yourself with the right people and feed your soul with the right content. You can do this. Stay alive, my dear friends. You are enough and you are worth it. The Philippine Suicide Hotline is 896-9191 or 0917-854- 9191. #suicideprevention #worldsuicidepreventionday,” mahabang caption ni Gab.
Well, kahapon nga ay makikita sa Instagram story ni Gab ang video niya na masayang-masaya siya. So, siguro naman, end of chika na, ha!
