Paulo Avelino opened up about his battle with mental health issues.
KAMI learned that the Kapamilya actor took to social media his personal struggles during a dark chapter in his life.
According to Paulo, he rarely talks about his personal life but the "Goyo" star thinks that it's high time for him to talk about these issues which might help someone who's also experiencing the same struggles.
"I think its time I talked about this dark period in my life because I know that someone out there is going through the same thing."
Despite being an introvert, the former Starstruck survivor bravely shared that he had depression and suicidal thoughts years ago. He went through a hard and dark journey where he felt like nothing mattered anymore, isolated himself away from his loved ones, and neglected his career.
"Years back I found myself in a place where I only saw one way out. I went through a spiralling journey of Depression and suicidal thoughts."
"Where everything seemed like nothing matters anymore. Locked myself at home, turned down almost every job that came in and shut myself off from work, friends, family, the world."
Paulo concluded his Instagram post by giving an encouraging message for those who are currently going through their dark phase.
"Please, don't be afraid to reach out to your friends, family, and loved ones. Don't be scared to voice out what you feel no matter how hard it is. Never lose HOPE."
