Ray Rice has been making headlines throughout the past year following the highly-publicized domestic dispute he and his wife Janay Rice were involved in.

Now, Ray reflects on what has been the most controversial time of his life. The former Ravens running back tells the Baltimore Sun:

The big picture of it all, being the person that I am, I really felt horrible. You almost want to punish yourself. I know I’m never going to win the battle of public opinion. Honestly, I almost felt like at one point that it wasn’t worth living. I see why people commit suicide.

Ray touched on his relationship with his wife Janay, simply saying:

Every day gets better.

He was immediately suspended from the Ravens once the footage surfaced the web. Ray continues:

“It’s tough, I realize that’s a battle I’m going to have to face for the rest of my life,” Rice said. “Time does heal everything, but I don’t think people are going to forget this. I want people to not forget about the incident, but I want people to see there’s a human being on the other side. This is not a monster, a guy who’s a repeat offender. I’m not the guy they stereotype me to be. I’m not excusing what I did.”
