US actor and musician Kid Cudi has checked himself into rehab to receive help to fight “depression and suicidal urges” which have threatened his peace.
Cudi took to his official Facebook page to share an open letter with his fans, explaining his condition. Describing himself as a “damaged person,” the rapper talked about his battles with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. He relieved how difficult and embarrassing it has been, “living a lie.”
Thus, through his real name Scott Mescudi, the rapper wrote this revelation;
“I am not at peace. I haven’t been since you’ve known me. If I didn’t come here, I would’ve done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions every day of my life. There’s a raging violent storm inside of my heart at all times. I don’t know what peace feels like. I don’t know how to relax. My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it.”
In addition, Cudi declared that he deserves to be happy like any other human and he’s out to get it. Hopefully, his trip to rehab will help revive his relationship with people as well as grant him inner peace.
“I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me? I guess I give so much of myself to others I forgot that I need to show myself some love too. I think I never really knew how. I’m scared, I’m sad, I feel like I let a lot of people down and again, I’m sorry. It’s time I fix me. I’m nervous but I am going to get through this,” he added.
Judging by the positive spirit rapper Kid Cudi is carrying on, his hopes of returning to the stage next month, “stronger, better and reborn” may not be far-fetched.
Generally, we are glad he’s getting the help he needs.
