This takes some strength, gurlfriend! We salute you!
Miley Cyrus has opened up to Elle magazine about her past struggles with depression and we couldn't be more proud of her!
The Wrecking Ball singer admitted that when she was younger, she was so depressed that at one point she locked herself in her room & Billy Ray Cyrus had to break down the door to get her out!
WHOA! That's pretty serious!
“It’s totally okay to feel sad. I went through a time where I was really depressed. Like, I locked myself in my room and my dad had to break my door down. It was a lot to do with, like, I had really bad skin, and I felt really bullied because of that. But I never was depressed because of the way someone else made me feel, I just was depressed.”
Oh, wow! We're SO happy Mileybird has both recovered from her depression AND feels confident enough to share her struggles with the world!
Ya never know how her story can help other people who are currently battling the illness!
We love this truth-talking Miley! Keep it up, gurlfriend!
