Sevyn is opening up and revealing some details about her personal life that are worth talking about. She recently sat down to talk about her serious battle with depression; she revealed that she thought about ending her own life. It’s a scary topic, but we’re glad she got through things. At the time, she seemed to be very close to doing something she would regret, even her family members knew it.
Opening up about something like this can be a very touchy subject. It takes strength to be able to look back on tough times like they were nothing, and that’s what Sevyn is doing now.
The “Just Being Honest” singer sat down with Vibe Vixen and opened up about her depression. Fans were surprised at how well she was able to keep things a secret.
“I dealt with depression on a very serious level for like a year and a half, and I never said anything to my fans,” she said. It’s unclear whether or not she thinks telling her fans would have been a bad thing, but we’re glad she made the decisions that she made.
“Obviously, my mom and my dad and my brother, a few family members knew about it… but it was really, really hard,” she commented.
She went on, saying, “I wanted to kill myself, I really did. And through my family, and God and prayer, it turned around.”
“Turning 30 was a big trigger for me… This is not like when you graduate high school and get your diploma. you go to college for four years, or whatever period of time, and you get your degree. You did it, and you get to move on. I’ve literally been doing the same exact thing every day with the same amount of intensity and focus, since I was 15 years old,” she said.
