Country singer Jimmie Allen is opening up about his mental health struggles in a new music video he shared on social media.
“I wrote this song about how I feel a lot of the time,” Allen said on Twitter and Instagram. “Mental illness is something I have struggled with my entire life.”
“Every day is a constant battle with myself. To everyone struggling, remember that you’re not alone and it’s ok to say you’re not ok,” he added.
The “Best Shot” singer also shared a black and white music video of the track, which was well received by his followers.
“Love you and love this song. Always follow the voice of Light my friend. Beautiful song,” actor Leslie Jordan wrote.
Allen expressed his feelings very honestly in the song.
“I’m never feeling good enough / just good at faking it / will anyone else love me for me /when they hear what I’m saying,” Allen sings. “Yeah, the pain pulls me apart like a ripped out floor / but I keep dancing and singing / that’s what the people came for / so I’ll smile for the cameras / and say that I’m ok / I’m broken in pieces and no one can see / the truth is that I’m always on the edge trying to find a point of living / I’m barely hanging on / no one can see that / I’m constantly fighting with me.”
