Singer, Jessie J Reveals She is Battling With Anxiety, Depression


The British singer, Jessie J took to Instagram to post a short video of her sitting at a piano while crying and singing.

“I’m not posting this for sympathy. I’m posting this for anyone who needs to see it (I needed it),” Jessie (30) captioned her post.

“This video is from yesterday I woke up. Feeling kinda off. I sat at the piano (which I’ve been avoiding) knowing it will bring some stuff up,” the singer explained.

“I’m making it up and feeling my real feelings. I went live as I wanted to share with you guys the moment.

“I didn’t know I would cry. I was live for a minute or two before this moment. But it’s important to be open that we’re not always done up and feeling 100.

“All of us have our days. Yesterday was one of my weird emotional days.

“In a time and a world (especially the social world) where sadly vulnerability is often seen as weakness where the younger generation are almost being taught to hide their real feelings behind a perfected edited image.

“Hence why anxiety and depression in kids is through the roof and only carries to their adult life if it doesn’t change. One of the biggest killers in men under 30 is suicide.”

The Bang Bang singer went on to encourage people to speak out about their mental issues, US Weekly reports.

“We push our feelings to the bottom of our energy and hope it goes away. It won’t. Don’t define yourself on it. But stand with it, process it and learn from it.

“Find your happiness. No one can make you happy but you. People can contribute. But ultimate happiness comes from within. It’s a personal journey.

“Talk to people you love when you are down. Please do not suffer in silence. Life is way too short and always gets better.

“I’m thinking of you and sending love to your heart,” Jessie said.

The love you had for your children. Was everything ❤️ We would laugh till we cried nearly everyday. We created Penelope and the blue Shetland pony together. We talked about our dreams. We talked about what our biggest fears were. You weren’t just my security, we ARE family. 4 years. Me and you. Remember when you got me the blue Shetland pony cake for the end of The Voice Aus. When we went to see fifty shades in Aus and giggled the whole way through. When you would text me when I was filming The Voice on the breaks to make me laugh. The late night walks we would take together to get some air. Who would shout “banana” quickest. When you came to see me when I was in hospital to cheer me up and I was out of it on anaesthetic and we again just laughed. You were so worried about me. You looked after me. Working out by the side of the bus everyday before the tour. You would push me and tell me I could do better. When you would do anything so I could see my fans waiting. You would always sort it out so it was safe for them and me. When I was terrified on that flight from Dubai to London because of the turbulence and you held my hand for 8 hours. I will never forget that. When we would go shopping and try on silly hats and glasses. When you would carry me to stage because my shoes wouldn’t make it through the mud. The way we laughed. I keep going back to that. We had so much fun Dave. Your love for working out. The way you would eat your meals and I would always wish I could be so disciplined. I am now. You inspired me. Your love for your dogs. Your love for tattoos. Your love for travelling. Your gentleness. Your voice. The way you stuck by me when everyone else left. It was me and you in Aus. You were my rock. I wrote this because I want everyone to remember the man you were. You were a gentle giant with a heart so big everyone felt it. I love you so much. We were supposed to meet for hot chocolate next week. I miss you. I will see you on the other side one day. Rest easy Dave / give your Dad a hug from me 💔✨🙏🏻

Earlier this year, the Nobody’s Perfect singer took a social media break after her longtime bodyguard, identified only as Dave, died in December, Daily Mail reports.

‘Starting my new year with some unexpected heavy personal stuff has only made me want to be more present in my life,” she revealed on social media.

“Spending more real time with people I love and some time with myself. When sadness hits, it’s important we embrace it, so it doesn’t define us.

“And it’s for sure surfaced some emotions and things I needed to work on with all my attention and love.

“I have to practise on myself what I talk about on stage and in my music too. In a good way.”

No one can make you happy but you. People can contribute. But ultimate happiness comes from within. It’s a personal journey. I have said time and time again in recent years I don’t want to be a role model but I want to inspire. To anyone young or older. Let your sadness / pain / Greif out. In your OWN way. Ever noticed so many people apologise as soon as they start to cry these days? Like it’s an inconvenience to FEEL. Draw. Sing. Paint. Walk. Write. Drive. Work out. Be still. Whatever it is that let’s you understand and process your real emotions do it. Another thing… TALK to people you love when you are down. Please do not suffer in silence. Life is way too short and ALWAYS GETS BETTER. I’m thinking of you and sending love to your heart ❤️
