“2017 vs 2019. Just a simple reminder that no matter how lost you are in the dark, you can always find your way back to the light if you choose to do so,” he said in the photo caption. “Only you alone can make that choice. It won’t be easy and you will face challenges where ending it all may seem like the only viable option, but it isn’t and never will be.”

He then gave a few words of inspiration for all those suffering the same thing he did. “Beat it by surrounding yourself with the right people and find an ecosystem where your spirit and soul can flourish. Be aware, be vigilant and be open. You are worth more than you will ever know. If you don’t see it now, others will and in the process you will as well. Your deepest setback will always be defeated by your greatest comeback.”
