I’m 16, I’ve dealt with ADHD and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I’ve dealt with PTSD since I was 5, and depression since I was 11. In the winter of 2019 we had just moved from my childhood home and I had no friends. It was one of the hardest times of my life, I just wanted it all to end. The day Juice WRLD died I was so angry/sad. On that day I wrote my first hip-hop lyrics out of sadness, I had played instruments in the past, but never wrote lyrics. A few days later it just kind of clicked, that it would get better, and to pursue music is what I wanted to do with my life, music was my purpose. I was struggling to find a purpose, but I just knew music is what I needed to do. I deal with substance abuse, anxiety, adhd, PTSD, and depression, and every day is a struggle. I want to help spread awareness and give mental health the attention it needs. I can truly say if it wasn’t for Juice WRLD I wouldn’t be here right now. His music is my reason to keep going.
