With 2020 coming around, many people are seeing off the last decade by comparing where they are now to where they were ten years ago, including current independent wrestler and former WWE Mae Young Classic competitor Priscilla Kelly.

However, Kelly, who competed in the 2018 edition of the tournament, losing in the first round to Deonna Purrazzo, used this moment to open up about her struggles with mental health issues and suicide.

Whilst it may have been shocking to see someone being so open about attempted suicide and self-harm, more and more people like her are opening up about their mental health issues, which is a step in the right direction towards removing the stigma around these subjects.

In her posts, Kelly goes on to reveal a positive message of hope.

2018 and 2019 were both big years for Kelly as she gained notoriety on the independent circuit after carrying out a spot involving a used feminine hygiene product and also made her debuts for WWE (in the Mae Young Classic - 2018) and AEW (in the Casino Battle Royale - 2019).

Hopefully, more people going through similar things see Kelly's growth in the last decade as an example that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
