He asked for everyone to pray for him to find rest and peace.
Read his post below….
“If you’re reading this, it’s because I loved you, or had feelings that I thought I understand as love.
Sometimes though I struggle to accept that it was love. This is because, I never loved myself and so I couldn’t possibly have shown you that love.
But on other days, I think about the care you showed me. The thoughtful messages, the hugs, the gifts and the positive words of affirmation. When I think about these, my heart bursts with an overwhelming feeling for that I have come to know as love. So it might have been that I loved you.
I am thankful to you that, you for opening your heart to me, and showing me kindness even when I didn’t I deserved it. If I hurt you in the process, my spirit begs for your forgiveness.”
