Following his Facebook post on Tuesday, Kid Cudi has been flooded with social media messages of love and support. In his emotional post, Cudi reveals that he has been struggling with depression, anxiety and suicidal urges. “I’m not at peace,” the rapper wrote. “I haven’t been since you’ve known me. If I didn’t come here, I wouldve done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life. Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times.” Cudi goes on to say that he is still releasing his new album soon and hopes to be well enough to preform a show in early November. In the post he admits to feeling “ashamed;” this not only highlights the devastating toll that depression takes on the mind and self esteem, but shows us that the stigma surrounding celebrity mental health. Ex-One Direction singer Zayn has also admitted to having to cancel shows due to overwhelming anxiety, and it’s not hard to imagine how fame and live performances can take a toll on your mental health. We wish him luck with his recovery, and hope that his message encourages others to take action against mental illness!
