Sevyn Streeter Details Her Bout with Depression
While recently discussing the writing process for her next album, singer Sevyn Streeter shared with fans her years-long battle with depression. Via a post on her Instagram page, the up-and-coming young diva revealed she’s quietly been suffering from the debilitating disorder for almost two years.
“Yesterday was a hard day for me, but thank God for the new days,” Sevyn captioned a photo with a powerful quote. “Over the last year and a half I’ve quietly suffered from depression. Only a few friends and family knew. Why am I sharing this with all of you? Well, because everything on the IG ain’t always pretty and we can’t add a filter to life.”
Sevyn went on to tell those who may also be suffering with depression to “hold on,” saying she thanks God every day for sending the right people into her life at the right time. Sevyn also wisely implored her fans to eschew feelings of shame and embarrassment and seek help.
