Gary Valenciano’s son Gab Valenciano took to social media to discuss about his ongoing battle with clinical depression.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, Gab described his struggles with mental illness in an attempt to shed some light on other people who are in the same situation.
“Being clinically depressed, this is the part that I hate the most. When everything seems to be fine, then you wake up the next day feeling absolutely worthless, blind and unable to see beyond the next day,” he stated in the post.
“In this case, I tend to isolate myself and shut the world out, and yes I still do this from time to time, which I call 'regrouping or recharging' time, but after a few days I make a decision to always surround myself with the right people, and consciously make an effort to choose to be better next time around,” Gab revealed.
Gab also included in the post his message to those who also have struggled with their mental conditions.
“To those who seen okay on the outside, but are dying on the inside. You are not alone in this fight, my dearest friends. The road is dark, the way is unclear, but your heart is beating which means you’re meant to be here. Who you are will always be enough and I genuinely believe that this is an avenue and opportunity for us to understand each other more. To empathize and help one another.”
“Because sometimes all we need is someone who may not necessarily understand what it’s like, but understands what it means to genuinely and unconditionally be there for you.”
To end his post, Gab said, “Baby steps are still steps. Keep stepping towards the light at the end of the tunnel and one day, you, we, slowly but surely, will get there. Believe this and you will win.”
