Former Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel is trying to make a return to professional football, and as part of that, he’s attempting to rehab his image.

Manziel recently went on Good Morning America and discussed his battles with bipolar disorder and depression.

Now, he’s sharing messages of hope with those going through similar battles. In an interview with TMZ on Saturday night, Manziel said it’s important to remember that things can always improve:

“Sometimes days don’t look as good as the others,” he said. “Sometimes you feel like you’ll never get out of the rut, but at the end of the day, from a person who felt like the end of the world was near and that I’d never make it out… To be where I’m at today and see hope and see a light … I feel blessed to be able to have fought through the bad times. As dark as it gets, eventually times will get better.”

What Manziel’s future holds remains to be seen, but he’ll at least play in the NFL’s spring league starting in March.

From there, we’ll have to see how well he plays to find out if he’ll get another shot in the NFL or not.
