It’s always important to remind ourselves that there shouldn’t be a stigma around mental health issues. Things like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and many other issues that people face are nothing to be ashamed of. And if you’re dealing with them, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, there are tons of celebrities out there who suffer from the same thing, and they’re not afraid to talk about it.
“I’m quite lucky to be here still. There are times when that level of loneliness and people getting into you every day, it’s like, ‘When will this end?’ That’s almost nearly killed me a couple of times,” he admitted.
When asked if he’s ever considered acting on those thoughts, Liam added, “Yeah, when I’ve been in a bad place. It’s one hundred percent, you know? There’s no point denying it — it’s definitely been on the menu a couple of times in my life.”
“Putting that happy smile on my face and singing the songs — sometimes it was like putting on one of those costumes and, underneath the costume, people don’t really see what’s going on,” the “Strip That Down” singer continued. “There’s only one thing you control within that situation and that is you. Just do today. Get on with that bit and then there’ll be another hurdle in a few months, a few weeks or maybe even the next day.”
And it turns out, he’s not the only one. Stars like Ariel Winter, Dua Lipa, Emma Watson, Noah Cyrus, Zendaya, Niki DeMartino, Ariana Grande, Troian Bellisario, Madelaine Petsch, Shawn Mendes, Dove Cameron, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Kira Kosarin and a ton more have all also bravely opened up about their own mental health issues, and we’re amazed by their strength.
