BTS Songs About Depression and Mental Health Issues
BTS has a reputation for standing up against social issues and speaking for today’s youth. In AGUST D, we see BTS addressing depression openly, it is one of those things which made me an army. During my teenage years, I faced lot of hardships. Depression, loneliness, hate and any other syndrome you can name. I hated the world around me. I hated every single person. I hated how things in this world worked. I hated the demons inside me.
I would rip past my demons from time to time, but things come back to haunt me no matter what! But one song really changed me as a person. In AUGST D, Suga addresses mental illness openly. He accepts depression like it’s second nature. For me it was the biggest takeaway as I learnt that accepting things makes things much simpler. One of the lines that struck me really hard was-
On the other side of the famous idol rapper stands my weak self, it’s a bit dangerous/depression, ocd, they keep coming back again from time to time
BTS songs about depression and mental health changed me as a person completely. It made me who I am today. It helped me transition from a horrible life to a acceptance based life. So, I would like to share some of the best BTS songs about depression and BTS songs about social issues. They helped me, I hope they can help you as well-
#1 Agust D: The Last
The time I want to erase, that’s right, the memories I want to erase of that day I had at the concert.
On the other side of the famous idol rapper stands my weak self, it’s a bit depression, ocd, they keep coming back again from time to time.
In this song, Suga addresses depression and self hate in the most honest manner as possible. He talks about things without sugar coating it. This is probably the most honest depiction of depression in any song ever.
BTS inspired me too! I’m glad we’re similar, it was probably the only thing which kept me going when I was low.
they help me so much even though i still feel low
I’ve seen a few people post about this. But that’s basically it. The first time I thought of this, I thought I was crazy – but turns out, I was ironically right.
For the past few months, I had been watching Kpop videos and listening to Kpop music, but whenever it came to BTS, it hit me in a different way. I’m a blink, stay, MOA, midzy, and an ARMY. I had recently listened to BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That” and I thought that it was pretty sick. I didn’t think much of it, but I was proud of the girls and was happy that such an amazing song had been made for their new comeback.
I then listened to Stay Gold, and felt this abnormal pain in my chest. It sank down to my stomach and I started feeling emotionally hurt and started crying. I have absolutely no idea why this happened, but I didn’t know how to describe the feeling. Whenever I listen to any BTS song, even if it’s upbeat and happy,
I feel this weird pain in my chest and I feel depressed for the rest of the day and feel like I want to curl up in a ball and cry for no reason at all. I then knew that there was something wrong with me and I already had severe depression. If someone asked me what caused my depression, the only thing that would come to mind is BTS, and I thought that I had gone out of my mind. I didn’t mind it and thought that quarantine had just gotten to me so I thought I was acting weird.
The severity of this issue flared in the past few days, and it bothered me so much that I just had to search it up out of my curiosity.
To my surprise, results came up and I saw other people suffering from the exact same thing I was. I soon decided that the best decision for me was the take a break from k-pop and BTS, but I feel weak without them. They give me motivation and strength, yet they also make me severely depressed at the same time. What should I do?
I think it’s because you’ve become emotionally dependent on them, maybe some part of you is sad realizing that they’re not gonna be with you forever.
Stay gold sounded like it would be their disbandment song, but they decided to renew their contracts. The lyrics do imply that they want Army to stay happy even when they’re gone. So I guess maybe your experiencing withdrawal/denial after hearing the song??
I think staying out of kpop, Bts especially is the right decision.
I don’t really know so don’t take my word for anything.
Whether I’m watching them on vlive, YouTube, or just listening to their music, BTS is always a bright spot during bleaker days.
I’ve been feeling extra down and hopeless the last several weeks and was wondering what songs make you feel good, whether it’s lyrics that you can relate to or that help you with the love yourself concept. I’m not necessarily looking for “happy” songs. I’m just having a hard time with Loving Myself.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
