Is it just me, or does it seem like Miley Cyrus has been on one hell of an emotional roller coaster lately? From losing her dog, to her hospitalization, to her international, non-stop tour, to allegedly hooking up with Jeremy Bieber (barf)…methinks some “Miley Time” is in order. Especially after reading the long, depressing, kinda rambly passage she posted on Twitter this weekend. Here are some bits and pieces:
“I keep asking why would the world take my sweet boy from me? I’m just a baby myself…I depend on my mother still. She is the one at the end of the day I want to hold me when I’m sad, scared, lonely. Her one job in this world is to eel me out of harms way…I was Floyd’s mommy. I don’t know when the regret and the guilt will fade. I don’t know if it ever will.”
She also talked about being “selfish” and needing some time to just lay in bed and “indulge” herself in sadness. Look, as someone who has openly struggled with depression and also lost two of my own beloved pets in the same year, I completely understand the devastation. I’m sure there are a lot of us out there who need those crying-in-bed days to get it all out (I admit I’ve absolutely called in sick to work before to do just that – and it helped me move on). I would absolutely never judge someone for that. But this post, combined with other emotional breakdowns Miley has experienced lately and her hospital stay (for what exactly, we’re still not sure) to me, sends up giant red flags.
Girl, you need a break. And there’s no shame in taking what you need. You’ve been through a lot and there’s probably a lot of shit you need to work out. You can’t do that when you’re going non-stop and not taking time out to help yourself. Cynical though I may be, I don’t get the feeling that she’s solely posting these things for attention. I think she’s genuinely struggling. I don’t want to see her going down the Amanda Bynes road, and I’m not saying that’s where she’ll end up because it would be blindingly ignorant to do so. But before Miley’s life comes to a similar “bottom”, if you will, can someone send her on a long vacation? Preferably with a journal and therapist in tow? K thanks.
