“I thought it meant that you were broken.”
The musician recently revealed that after One Direction‘s hiatus, he was pretty reluctant to go to therapy.
In fact, Harry says he thought that going to therapy meant that there was something wrong with you that needed to be fixed.
“I thought it meant that you were broken,” he said in an extended interview with Better Homes & Gardens. “I wanted to be the one who could say I didn’t need it.”
But five years ago, Harry finally decided to start talking to someone and he says it completely changed everything for him.
Going to therapy allowed him to “open up rooms in himself” that he didn’t know existed and stop “emotionally coasting” through life.
“I think that accepting living, being happy, hurting in the extremes, that is the most alive you can be. Losing it crying, losing it laughing — there’s no way, I don think, to feel more alive than that,” Harry concluded.
