Gab Valenciano took to social media to share his thoughts on the year that went by.
KAMI learned that Gab considers 2018 as the darkest year of his life.
The performer admitted to trying to hurt himself and losing a lot of weight early last year due to the pain and disappointment in his life.
He also posted a collage, with the first image showing him in a hospital while weighing 145 lbs and the second image showing him looking healthier.
“Early in 2018, I hit rock bottom. 145lbs vs 171lbs. March vs June. Lost vs found. It was the darkest and most painful time of my life. I kept in so much that one day, I imploded and tried to hurt myself to numb myself of the pain, disappointment, uncertainty, doubt and fear. I am sharing this post to show you that there will always be hope and that you are not alone.
“That the light at the end of the tunnel will keep shining, you just need to keep walking towards it. I want to thank my family, my closest of friends and doctors who were with me since day one, for never giving up on me. You know who you are. I am extremely blessed to have you all in my life. God bless you all and I hope and pray that when you feel like giving up, don’t.
“Surround yourself with people who genuinely care for you and seek help. There is no shame in acknowledging where you are. Accept, rebuild and move forward. Life will forever be a continuous struggle, find people to struggle strong with. Stop surviving and start living. If there’s one thing I got out of all this, it is empathy.
“I am not ashamed of where I’ve been because I am proud of where I’m headed. Happy YOU year, everyone. May you have the greatest year yet. This won’t be the last time the enemy will try to take me, but next time, I will be ready. Bring it,” Gab wrote.
KAMI previously reported that Gab introduced on social media his new girlfriend, Joann Santiago.
Gab Valenciano is the son of OPM legend Gary Valenciano.
In 2014, he got married to Tricia Centenera in a civil wedding in the US and two more times in Tagaytay and Boracay in 2015. Unfortunately, the two separated due to Gab’s alleged cheating.
