Recently this 20-year old American singer put out a post on her Instagram, as she completed two years of her debut EP Good Cry, which talked about her battles with depression.
“putting this ep out and going on tour during one of the most depressive times in my life was so hard,” she wrote in her post. “every day felt like lifting 100lb weights just to get out of bed. the ache in my chest from the pain felt unbearable..”
“at 18 i didn’t think i was going to be here for a 20th birthday soon to be 21. they felt 1000 years away. it seems impossible… i was so sad. so hurt. and so scared,” she added. “thank you to everyone that’s been by my side during all of my progression and the times where it felt like i was regressing.”
She stresses on taking mental health very seriously and asks her fans to bear with her while she gets better.
“every day is work when it comes to your mental health and personal battles. not every day is going to be hell and not every day is going to be perfect. i’m still figuring that out,” she wrote, “thank you for understanding how growing up so publicly was hard on me.. thank you for your support and continuing to grow with me.”
She ended her lengthy post by adding, “i’m so happy that i was able to create something that everyone relates to… i turned the pain into something beautiful that others can sing, cry, or smile to and nothing makes me feel more purposeful than that. i love you all thank you so much for everything.”
Fans from all the corners of the world came together in support of Noah and encouraged her to continue and win her battle. Cyrus, who has been very vocal about the importance of mental health teamed up with the Ad Council for the Seize the Awkward campaign and The Jed Foundation, dedicated to preventing suicide and ending the stigma around mental illness, in the last few years.
