Shawn Mendes prioritizes mental health over anything
Being in the public eye is not as easy as it seems. And Shawn Mendes can feel it too.
The Canadian performer is opening up about his recent mental health struggles and has even postponed his upcoming Wonder Tour.
On Friday, the Senorita singer took to Instagram to share how he’s been feeling recently. The 23-year-old wrote:
“This breaks my heart to have to say this, but unfortunately I’m going to have to postpone the next three weeks of shows through Uncasville, CT until further notice,”
“I’ve been touring since I was 15 and to be honest it’s always been difficult to be on the road away from friends and family.”
The singer further wrote:
”After a few years off the road, I felt like I was ready to dive back in, but that decision was premature and unfortunately the toll of the road and the pressure has caught up to me and I’ve hit a breaking point.”
Shawn is taking his time to feel better
Mendes also informed his fans that he is currently seeking medical professionals’ help and his team has urged him to take some time to get well before he feels like it.
“After speaking with my team and health professionals, I need to take some time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health, first and foremost. As soon as there are more updates I promise I will let you know love you guys.”
Mendes kicked off his Wonder tour in June which would go till October followed by a European leg in 2023.
The performer has always been vocal about mental health and anxiety issues. In April, he wrote a letter to his fans talking about how he suffers from anxiety and insecurities.
In the letter, he wrote:
“The truth, in current form is a 23 year old who constantly feels like he’s either flying or drowning. Maybe that’s just what it is to be in your 20’s idk, or maybe that’s just me…”
”The truth is even with so much success I still find it hard to feel like I’m not failing.” He had concluded his message by assuring his fans that he was “OK” and hoped his words would “resonate with some people.”
