Here’s what Shytoshi wrote in the blog. “I’ve had one of the most extraordinary lives, and that was before I was Shytoshi. Being “different” and “gifted” only made things worse growing up in a world that made no sense, during times that I’d learn later were orchestrated to be … difficult.”

The head of Shiba Inu then revealed that he attempted to commit suicide to end his pain. “Many nights I wondered why I even exist, and once (or twice), decades ago, I attempted to leave this earthly sphere as the hurt and pain was to much to bear.”

Shytoshi stated that his attemp did’nt go as planned and he’s lucky to have survived. “Except I didn’t go. Tried. Didn’t work. I couldn’t fathom why it was “divine providence” I was still here. I was broken, burnt out, and confused.”

However, he stated that he overcame his pain and struggles and will reveal how did did it in his next blogs. “One day I’ll let you know exactly what it took me personally to overcome my pain,” he wrote.

“Now, years later. I stand before you whole, focused, and wise enough to tell you that if I have a purpose so do you. And leaving is not it,” he wrote.
