According to him, online bullying made him depressed before he realized that he should not bother himself with people who contribute nothing to his life.
He added that suicide is never an option and he is succeeding today because he now knows there s more to life.
His words, “Why bother your self with people who contribute nothing to your life? Are you the first to have a failed marriage? Are you the first to have kids from 4 different women?”
“Suicide is never an option”.
“I am here today because I know there is got to be more,”
