New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Will Ospreay shared a message Tuesday on Instagram, speaking on his mental health battle.
In a deeply personal message, Ospreay spoke on contemplating suicide. He thanked those who have been by his side, and says he is now “learning and pushing forward”.
He wrote the following in an Instagram story on Tuesday.
Few weeks ago, I came very close to something I know I’d regret.
I’m still dragging my feet but I’m getting better.
I’m still smiling, barely but a smile nonetheless.
Suicide isn’t an option even when you feel like you’ve dropped the world, learning and pushing forward to be better is an option.
Thank you to the people that have ever made me smile or laugh and been there to pick me up. Because of you my heart still beats.
I love you all
