Kunle Remi, Popular Nigerian actor has disclosed the experience how he battled with depression.
The Anikulapo star in a video posted on his Instagram handle, said that he almost committed suicide sometime back in 2017.
The actor was reacting to the breaking news of the popular American DJ, Twitch, who committed suicide on Wednesday, describing his passing as sad news.
Sharing his ordeal, the Nigeria actor said, “Yesterday the news broke of DJ Twitch’s passing by suicide and it was a very sad news but I can absolutely relate to that. It’s never really fine, as we say, i am fine, even though we always act like it’s fine. We go through a lot as men.
“I remember in 2017 I had a series of tweet that I went on to delete. It was very suicidal. Someone called me a year later and said I should go delete those tweets, I was going through a lot, I was overwhelmed, I was thinking too much of my career, am I doing enough, am I enough, am I with the right person, so many thoughts in my mind.
“At a point I could not take it, I felt so useless, not enough, incompetent, even though it was the contrary of what I felt, I was beating myself too much, then I started to tweet randomly and I was very close to jumping off the bridge or just taking my life. It took the grace of God for me to scale through that.
“I usually bottle up. I don’t share stuff but I learnt to become better doing that. And I just want to share a word with every man out there. Look, it’s not easy, and it’s not going to be easy, but talk to someone. Always have someone in your corner that you can talk to and open up with.
“Life is beautiful, but it doesn’t guarantee that it will be smooth all the time but we need to always find a balance and choose happiness over being sad. I’ve been there, I’ve gone through it.
“Right now, I still caution myself. I take life one day at a time. Once I get overwhelmed, I shut down. Depression, mental health is very important. We can do better. Just thought to share.”
