Cara Delevingne admits self-harming as a teenager http://t.co/AHCZ9WScgb— Daily Mail Celebrity (@DailyMailCeleb) June 19, 2015
She says she grew up too quickly because of her mother’s addiction to heroin and that left her with her own demons during her teenage years. "All of a sudden I was hit with a massive wave of depression and anxiety and self-hatred, where the feelings were so painful that I would slam my head against a tree to try to knock myself out. I never cut, but I’d scratch myself to the point of bleeding. I just wanted to dematerialise and have someone sweep me away."
She says that while taking a break from modelling in New York she contemplated taking her own life. "I was packing my bags, and suddenly I just wanted to end it. I had a way, and it was right there in front of me. And I was like, I need to decide whether I love myself as much as I love the idea of death."
