Destanee Aiava: "I was about to commit suicide"

Destanee Aiava, former tennis player, confessed through a touching Instagram post how she attempted suicide. She wrote: "On the night of Easter Sunday, April 17, I was about to jump off a bridge. But three people passed, dragged me off the tracks and brought me home.

This whole tennis thing is getting tired of me. After the Australian Open I'll take a break, that's what I want and need. I know my family and friends are happy to know that I am alive on this day that should be special.

Sometimes the people we meet in life can make us feel unworthy of being loved, but at the end of the day I learned that ... God is faithful and will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the your trial will also provide you with the way out so that you can endure it.

" Aiava is a player born in 2000, who has achieved the big stages by establishing a small and personal goal: she was the first tennis player born in the new millennium to win a WTA match. A former promise was also defined for her resemblance to Naomi Osaka.

This is the original Instagram post:

"TW - Suicide The night of Easter Sunday (17th April) I was going to throw myself off a bridge onto the M1, 3 people drove by, dragged me off the rails and drove me home. I did not want to make it to my 22nd birthday, but I know my family and friends would be happy to know I’m alive on this day that’s meant to be special.
Sometimes people you come across in life can make you feel that you’re unworthy of being loved, but at the end of the day I’ve learnt -
"God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength but with your testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it”
Thank you for sending your love and well wishes if you have today, Love D"
