Just because you’re on top of the world doesn’t mean that you necessarily feel like it all of the time. In a lengthy interview with Weverse Magazine that published on Sunday (Aug. 1), BTS’ Jimin opened up about a recent “difficult” period and how his parents helped him through it.
“I only realized it recently, but I used to be really unstable,” Jimin told Weverse. “I thought I could take care of all these problems, but looking back, that wasn’t the case,” he continued, attributing it to being “headstrong.”
“I felt like I was becoming empty sometimes, at first. I felt like I was denying my own thoughts and beliefs,” Jimin explained. “But I talked a lot with my parents, and I said, ‘Did you know I was going through all that?’ And they said, ‘We didn’t know what you were going through, but we knew it was something.’ So finally I shared what I was feeling with them, and my mom and dad talked to me like they were my life coaches. After coming out of that whole period, even when I do similar things, I can tell my mind has changed a lot.”
