Inamin ng beauty queen/actress na si Maureen Wroblewitz na naisip niyang tapusin na ang kanyang buhay some months ago.

Sa mahabang post sa Instagram, nag-open up si Maureen sa pinagdadaanang mental health struggles at isa na nga rito ay nang muntik na siyang mag-suicide.

“This girl that you see smiling and posing in front of the camera was thinking of all the easiest ways to end her life just a few months prior,” simula ni Maureen.

Mabuti na lang daw at napansin ito ng kanyang kapatid at sinabi sa kanilang parents.

“If it wasn’t for her little sister finding her in a vulnerable situation and telling her parents about it, I don’t know if I would be here today,” she said.

Ayon pa sa Asia’s Next Top Model 2014 at Miss Universe Philippines 2021 first runner-up, alam niyang may mali sa kanya noon pa.

“After losing my Mom at the age of 11 and experiencing more of life’s difficulties soon after, I had slowly started losing faith in myself. I was fighting my inner demons alone because I chose to suffer in silence. I didn’t want to burden anyone with my problems but I also was too ashamed of them. I knew something was wrong but I wanted to hide that for as long as I could. It wasn’t until one blurry night and suddenly I was exposed.

“My parents suggested I start seeing a therapist and after completing a few sessions, my Dad gifted me a book. ‘Life Without Limits’ by Nick Vujicic. That is what ultimately inspired me to change my outlook on life,” pahayag ng ex-girlfriend ni JK Labajo.

“Nick’s story had made me realize that at just 13, I hadn’t even seen the world yet. I didn’t know what was yet to happen, and I thought ‘What if I do become someone in this lifetime?” What if I get to inspire people with my story?” What if I’m meant for, something bigger?’ From then on I knew I had to make my dreams a reality, I knew I couldn’t hide in my darkness forever. I was convinced that telling my story was my purpose and that I had to work hard so I could become someone that I’m proud of.

“Just that change of mindset opened a lot of doors for me. I started my fashion blog a few months later and even though I kept it a secret from people in my school out of fear of being judged, I shared about my life and my love for fashion.

“A year later I got discovered by my no momager on Instagram and 3 years after that, I was living my dreams in the Philippines,” pagbabahagi niya ng kanyang buhay.

Hanggang ngayon ay nilalabanan pa rin niya ang depression at kumukonsulta pa rin sa therapist every month. But the good thing about is alam na niya how to deal with it lalo pa’t nandiyan ang suporta ng kanyang pamilya at boyfriend.

“I have always wanted to share more about my mental health struggles but I never knew how. I now understand that the best way is to just do it, to speak my truth and people will listen. I believe that even if I get to help just one person by sharing my story, I have done something right. Depression is still a constant battle for me but I am no longer afraid to ask for help. I see my therapist every month, I have motivational calls with my momager and I have the support of my family and my boyfriend.

“I am grateful for all the people in my life who love and care for me. I wouldn’t be here without them.. literally. To all my supporters, you have made my dreams possible and you still continue to do so,” aniya.

Sa huli ay nagpasalamat si Maureen na hindi siya sumuko noon at very proud siya sa sarili of what she has become now.

“I can now say that I’m extremely proud of myself, not just for all my achievements but for having found the strength to fight for what I believed in. I’m glad I didn’t give up on myself. I now know that I am truly meant for something bigger,” pagtatapos ni Maureen.

Sa caption ay nagbigay din siya ng reminder sa netizens na laging i-check ang mga kaibigan at pamilya kung may mga pinagdadaanan din.

“This is a reminder to check on your friends and family. Most people suffer in silence and depression is usually hidden behind smiles and laughter. Remember to always be kind because you never know what someone is going through,” paalala ni Maureen.
