Halsey is reflecting on the last decade of their life.
A week before “Without Me”Singer set to celebrate their 28th anniversaryTh birthday, they penned a message on social media, admitting that—despite their height of fame—they too feel sad and lonely at times.
“I find that often there is a deep sadness inside me that no amount of worldly pleasure can touch, a loneliness, an emptiness,”The singer wrote the following September 21st on their Instagram Stories. “I wonder often if I chose the wrong life for myself. And the weight of it is suffocating. I’m sorry that melancholy has penetrated my art in a way that hasn’t served a greater purpose other than my own self loathing.”
Halsey wrote then that they were approaching their birthdays and they are “just now exhaling and gasping for air for the first time since I took a single breath in this new life at 18.”
They went on, “I am wandering lawlessly and I hope to find my way somewhere meaningful soon so that I can give you the guys I’ve always known to scoop heapings of into your ears. They are shriveling lately. If you cannot be kind, at least be gentle. With love.”
