Dear Scott Mescudi (Kid Cudi),

You da man. You’re so selfless that it makes me feel as if I know you. Watching your interviews and listening to you talk about wanting to help people through your music. You pointed out many ways that you would want to help people through your music, but the most important was to help stop suicide. You would open up to the person who was interviewing you about your depression problem. “ My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it. I can’t make new friends because of it. I don’t trust anyone because of it and I’m tired of being held back in my life. I deserve to have peace”, Scott explained to his fans on Twitter. I find it extra inspiring because he’s African American. It’s very unusual to hear a male talk about depression, let alone an African American. Men don’t want to ask for clinical help because they don’t want to be seen as less of a man. I feel a connection to what You say because I can relate. I was raised to think that asking for help was a weakness. Since I was told that, I felt that having a depression issue would be weak so I kept it in. After watching watching your videos openly talking about your depression, you’ve inspired me to try to be more open and talk about it more.

Thanks Scott,
Nyel Gladney
