Sam Smith Opens Up About Mental Health & His Most Challenging Year

Sam Smith is getting candid about his mental health.

The 27-year-old singer took to his Instagram to open up about about the past year and a half as he’s dealt with personal issues in therapy.

“Looking back on a year and a half of therapy and what has been probably the most challenging time of my short 27 years here. I’ve watched and read so much over the last 6 months to try and make sense of all the mess in my head. Tried to find ways to organise all of my problems so that they are bound and organised into folders and boxes, so that they will never haunt me or effect me again,” Sam wrote.

He continued, “But I’m slowly starting to realise that the words above are the only words that really matter….and they are the words of the incredible @brenebrown …. ‘You are enough’ That mess in your mind is not a mess. It is who you are. By constantly trying to change and seek perfection and a life of no pain only causes more pain I am realising. Still on course and learning but feeling the closest I’ve ever felt to a real space of Joy, gratitude and peace.”

Sam added that he hopes his words are comforting to his fans and encouraged them to start and end their day with the mantra, “I am enough.”
