Big Sean is opening up to his fans about battling depression and anxiety and has revealed that it has helped make him a stronger person.
The Detroit rapper scrubbed his Instagram except for 3 new videos he posted late Sunday night, detailing a spiritual journey he took starting around this time last year on his birthday. Sean says he felt lost and stepped back from life to examine why.
When his usual meditation wasn't working, Sean says he turned to therapy and talking about his issues -- namely, his growing discontent with his work and the state of the relationships around him, some of which he calls "toxic."
Sean says his therapist told him he needed clarity ... clarity on who was around him, on what he was doing ... and for what purpose. He explains that revelation put things into perspective and helped him re-prioritize a lot of things in his life.
Along the way, Sean says he also started doing things by himself for himself ... like skydiving. Now, he says he's back in love with music ... and doing better than ever.
He leaves his fans with a powerful message about self-love and self-reliance ... hammering home the idea that getting one's foundation situated is a huge key to happiness.
