In the Saturday episode of It’s Showtime, the topic of suicide was discussed when a Tawag ng Tanghalan contestant mentioned the high suicide rate in Japan. This was when it was revealed that Vice Ganda attempted suicide.

According to the superstar comedian, he tried to take his own life at 16 years old due to heartbreak though he didn’t reveal how. Years later, Vice Ganda said he realized his ‘katangahan’ and how fortunate he was that his suicide attempt failed.

“Sixteen years old, nag-try akong mag-suicide because of heart break,” said Vice. “Buti na lang talaga hindi ako natuluyan.”

“Kung nagtagumpay yung katangahan kong ‘yon, di sana hindi ko nararanasan yung mga nararanasan ko ngayon, ‘di ba? E, di sana hindi ko nabigyan ng magandang buhay yung nanay ko. Kung natuluyan ako noon, e, di sana hindi ko kayo napapasaya ngayon.”

“Kaya we have to be very wise sa mga desisyon natin, kasi isang maling katangahan, hindi na natin talaga maibabalik. Kung hindi man natuloy ang mga pinapalano n’yo sa buhay n’yo, mas maganda ang pinaplano ng Greatest Planner of all time, ng Diyos.”
