T.I.'s 18-Year-Old Daughter Deyjah Harris Gets Candid About Her Mental Health & Admits 'It Hasn't Gotten Easier'

T.I.‘s daughter Deyjah Harris is getting very candid.

The 18-year-old got candid about her mental health in a video posted on Tuesday (March 31).

“Transparently speaking, depression and anxiety is something that I’ve been dealing with since about the age of 11,” she said.

“My self-esteem started to become an issue for me in the sixth grade due to bullying. I started to struggle with understanding what it was that I was feeling and I definitely knew that I wasn’t able to express what it was that I was going through.”

She also revealed she turned to “self-inflicted coping mechanisms that weren’t too healthy or beneficial to me or my growth,” and admitted that she had suicidal thoughts.

“There have been multiple times where I couldn’t really envision the evolution of myself due to the fact that I just felt really unmotivated and I also repeatedly had thoughts of me not being here anymore,” Harris said.

“The way that I viewed depression and anxiety at 11 is way more different than I experience it now at 18. In other words, it hasn’t gotten easier for me,” she went on to say.

“However, please don’t let this give you the idea that you won’t get better. It’s really just about healing you and your inner child to prevent any open wounds from carrying into adulthood.”
