Billie Eilish Reveals She Had Serious Thoughts Of Depression And Suicide
If you think fame/money will solve all your problems, then you obviously haven’t been following the gossip headlines, ’cause a lot of celebrities are strugggggling.
The latest? Billie Eilish. During an interview with Gayle King (via The Gayle King Grammy Special) the 18-year-old singer revealed she was in a terrible place last year. She said that she didn’t think she’d live to see 17, ’cause she was certain she’d kill herself.
I didn’t ever think I would be happy again, ever. I don’t want to be too dark, but I genuinely didn’t think I would make it to 17.
She then talked about how one day she was staying in Berlin, and she was alone inside her hotel room.
I remember there was a window right there. And I, God. I remember crying because I was thinking about how the way that I was gonna die was I was gonna do it. I was so unhappy last year. I was so unhappy, and I was so joyless.
Now she has appeared to turn a corner and is trying her best to use her own experience with depression to help some of her fans who are struggling with similar things.
I just grab them by the shoulders and I’m like, ‘Please take care of yourself and be good to yourself and be nice to yourself. Don’t take that extra step and hurt yourself further and then you can’t take it back.’
So yeah, if you’re sitting inside your room thinking, “If only I had money, I would be happy!” think again. Money can make a lot of sh*t easier, but it’s not going to make you happy, at least not permanently.
Work on yourself. You’re the only person who cares enough to do it.
