Deyjah Harris Admits That She Had Suicidal Thoughts
Deyjah Harris was brave enough to talk about her mental struggles that the young star had since she was 11 years old. Rapper T.I.’s daughter posted a video on her YouTube channel and shared many intimate information about her depression.
“Transparently speaking, depression and anxiety is something that I’ve been dealing with since about the age of 11,” – said the young star.
She also added that self-esteem was a problem for her, like for many teenagers. As the young lady said, she couldn’t explain that feeling because she was only 11 years old.
“Without the proper knowledge and support, I eventually started to turn to self-inflicted coping mechanisms that weren’t too healthy or beneficial to me or my growth. I couldn’t really envision the evolution of myself due to the fact that I just felt really unmotivated to continue my journey and I also repeatedly had thoughts of me not being here anymore.” – continued the T.I.’s daughter.
The beautiful girl also had a strong message for all the people who are going through something similar, as she said that despite the anxiety and depression, a healthy lifestyle is possible.
“Try drinking tea or giving yourself a nice bath or shower. Try giving yourself a facial, or going to get a facial.” – advised Harris.
However, as per her words, the biggest help was when she stopped using social media platforms.
The brave lady sent an important message, and we can just applaud her for the courage to talk about the important issues.
