Fans of Kristoff St. John (Neil) have been deeply concerned about The Young and the Restless star ever since reports of his well-being surfaced.
Now, the Emmy-winning St. John has shared a powerful and uplifting Facebook post with his followers, sharing that his outlook has greatly improved!
Living In Gratitude
“Thank you to all my friends on FB, social media and beyond,” St. John began his post. “I’m in awe of the outpouring of love. I have read your amazing comments and have seen wonderful pictures and inspirational quotes and words that you have given me. You have helped me more than you will ever know.”
According to TMZ, St. John had been hospitalized after he had allegedly sent photos of himself to his former wife that showed St. John holding a gun to his head.
The TMZ report stated that St. John had become despondent as the three-year November 23rd anniversary of the death of his son, Julian, was approaching. The actor was placed on a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.
“I have made great strides in the last 3 weeks,” St. John wrote on Facebook. “I am healthy and thriving. I have reclaimed my strength. I am moving forward. I have no other choice. Following God’s plan.
“This was some serious family love that you showed me,” he continued. “I will never, ever go back in time to repeat such dark behavior. I love my family and friends way too much. Thank you for supporting me and standing by the St. John family.”
St. John included in his post advice and words of wisdom that everyone should keep in mind when going through challenges in life: “Fall seven times, rise eight.”
The actor signed off by saying: “Life begins now! Love, peace and light, Kristoff.”
