‘Life has been very overwhelming recently and admittedly I’ve probably not handled myself in the best possible way. I take full responsibility for my actions. I’m aware I’m far from perfect and that there is work that needs to be done to myself. 

‘I had my first therapy session on Monday which really took me out of my comfort zone, I know have needed this for years but it’s only now I have decided to get help. I know it’s a step in the right direction for me even after just one session.

‘I’m not asking for sympathym I just wanted to acknowledge the situation and move forward as positively as I can.

‘However, I know this can be used as an important lesson for me moving forward and over the coming years. I hope I can become the person I want to be and use this new platform to spread a positive message. I’m sorry to anyone that I have let down.’
