Bella Thorne Clears Up Her Tweet About Depression

Bella Thorne Clears Up Her Tweet About Depression

Earlier this month, Bella Thorne faced backlash after posting a tweet about going through depression, and she wants to clear it up.

“I took it down because maybe some people were hurt by what I said in some way,” Bella explains. “I just wanted to say, ‘You’re not alone.’ The people you think have the most perfect lives, don’t.”

She adds that she understands why some took her self-diagnosis the wrong way.

“I wasn’t saying that I clinically went to a doctor. I didn’t know it was a big thing,” she says. “You can judge me for believing my beliefs. In my family, we never went to doctors growing up. I don’t like medication. I don’t even take birth control. I won’t even take Advil or Tylenol. I power through. I’m all natural.”

“It’s so OK for you to be unhappy, or to think these things. You’re only making it more sad, the more you don’t talk about it,” Bella continues. “It’s OK for your mind to naturally wander and for you to be sad. Sometimes, you’re just sad.”

She adds, “Your arc in life is to be a happier, better person, the more you grow. If you’re shutting yourself off, you’re never just saying it or getting help for yourself in that way.”
