ProWrestlingSheet.com has published a story about a fan named Michael Greene who was contacted by WWE 205 Live Superstar Mustafa Ali on Twitter a little over a year ago when Mr. Greene was contemplating taking his own life.
“Here was someone who didn’t know me from anywhere but social media interactions reaching out to me when I’d decided there was no point to anything anymore," Michael told ProWrestlingSheet.com.
Mustafa's words of kindness towards Michael resulted in Michael getting the help that he needed to deal with his depression.
Mustafa Ali often uses the phrase, "Be the light in a world of darkness." As a tribute to the WWE Cruiserweight competitor, Michael got the phrase tattooed on his arm:
“For me, it was a reminder of where I’d come from and how I got past it,” Michael said. “We live in a world where terrible things happen every day, and yet people like Ali do what they can to try and find a balance and bring positivity to the world. Ali inspired me to try and be the same, so I carry his words with pride and in honor of the man who helped me find my way.”
“I look at all the things that have happened since that day that I could have missed out on: watching my daughter grow up, seeing my friends and family do amazing things, — hell, even Mustafa Ali in the ring at WrestleMania – and I thank everyone who helped me be there for those things,” Michael recalled.
“If you’re going through a rough patch, hold on. You never know what’s just around the corner and the things you’ll miss if you go.”
