Lisa Rinna's daughter Delilah Belle Hamlin recently opened up about how her personal struggles contributed to her decision to seek treatment in the past. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills daughter and model confirmed her time in treatment on Instagram, going into great detail about her emotional journey and why she decided to go to rehab to get help for her health and well-being.
"I've been hesitant to share this information with you guys because there are a lot of you now and sometimes that scares me," she shared on social media, via ET. "I strive to try my hardest to be a positive influence on my younger followers. I wanted to share this with you guys today because it could help at least one person struggling with anxiety and or depression."
She continued, "This time last year I was in rehabilitation. I moved to New York to start my journey as a student at NYU. Not long after I moved to New York I began having terrible depression. I started attracting negative people into my life because my thoughts were so negative. I got trapped in a severely unhealthy relationship that pushed me over the edge. I couldn't get out of the relationship because I thought I was deserving of it."
She noted that after eight months in that relationship, she called up her mom because "I couldn't take the pain anymore."
Delilah further explained, "In February I called my mom, packed some bags, and took the soonest flight back to LA. Two weeks later I was admitted into a rehab facility. I knew the way I was living was unhealthy and detrimental to my mental health so I called my mom and told her I needed help. Little did I know that this was going to be the BEST thing that has ever happened to me. I learned so much about being independent, feeling less shameful and guilty, I learned about self-love instead of self-deprivation and so much more."
She returned to treatment in June for another stay, she confirmed.
"I worked through traumas and self-love. But most importantly I learned what self-respect meant... [You shouldn't let another person] take over your life and tell you who you are or how to be. Take control of your own life and get rid of all negative people and energy that may surround you. And I guarantee this will lead to a happier life even if it's hard in the moment."
Delilah called the decision to return to treatment "truly the best thing that has ever happened to me."
Delilah's decision to open up about her struggles comes in the wake of her sister, Amelia Gray, previously discussing her issues with anorexia, which she confirmed in 2018.
