New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater dropped an inspirational post on social media Tuesday afternoon, and you’re going to want to read it.

Bridgewater, who suffered a brutal knee injury while on the Vikings, wrote about how he supports the “young boy that looks forward to practice but hates when practice ends because that’s the only place you find joy in the world and once practice is over its back to the struggle.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

He concluded the post by stating, “I was once in your shoes. I believe in you.” You can read the full post below. It’s awesome.

It’s impossible to cheer against Teddy Bridgewater. You just can’t do it. It’s not possible. He might be the most likable guy in the NFL.

I’ve never seen somebody with his level of positivity before. His knee injury against the Vikings could have ended his career.

I’ve had a hard time accepting the fact that the season ended the way it did. But I’ve finally come to a realization that the 2019 season is over for us. Coach Payton always talked about teams walking together for life, especially the ones who complete the ultimate task of winning a Super Bowl. Although we came up short this year, this 2019 Saints team will always hold a special place in my heart. This season allowed me to release many tears and other emotions I’ve been holding in since 2016 and it felt great to finally let it all out. I’ve danced and smiled because I know the center of my joy comes from the Lord, but in 2019 a lot of that joy came from my teammates, this organization and this city! I’m excited about what tomorrow will bring, tap in! #NoBadDays

At the very least, it set his playing timeline back, but he’s not bitter at all. All Bridgewater does on a regular basis is motivate us all to be better today than we were yesterday.

That’s the kind of guy I want next to me in a foxhole when the bullets start flying. That’s the kind of guy I want to take the field with.

Nobody knows what the future holds for Bridgewater, but I know he’ll embrace it with open arms. He’s a hell of a good dude, and we could all learn a thing or two from him.
