"I've been hesitant to share this information with you guys because there are a lot of you now and sometimes that scares me. I strive to try my hardest to be a positive influence on my younger followers. I wanted to share this with you guys today because it could help at least one person struggling with anxiety and or depression. This time last year I was in rehabilitation. I moved to New York to start my journey as a student at NYU. Not long after I moved to New York I began having terrible depression," she wrote.
Delilah, 21, went on to explain how she found herself in a toxic relationship, which only exacerbated her mental health issues.
She continued, "I started attracting negative people into my life because my thoughts were so negative. I got trapped in a severely unhealthy relationship that pushed me over the edge. I couldn't get out of the relationship because I thought I was deserving of it. After 8 months or so with this guy I couldn't take the pain anymore. In February I called my mom, packed some bags, and took the soonest flight back to LA. Two weeks later I was admitted into a rehab facility."
"I knew the way I was living was unhealthy and detrimental to my mental health so I called my mom and told her I needed help. Little did I know that this was going to be the BEST thing that has ever happened to me. I learned so much about being independent, feeling less shameful and guilty, I learned about self-love instead of self-deprivation and so much more," she added.
Delilah checked back into rehab in June and stayed for two months as she worked on her recovery.
"Saying no is OKAY! Do only things that make you happy and make you feel good about yourself. Don't let another individual take over your life and tell you who you are and how to be. Take control of your own life and get rid of all the negative people and energy that may surround you. I guarantee this will lead to a happier life even if it's hard in the moment," she advised.
