On the heels of the recent suicide deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, as well as his close friend Chris Cornell last year, Dave Navarro revealed that he previously contemplated ending his own life.
“I can’t speak to anyone else’s thoughts or actions but I can speak from my own experience. I have been there, written ‘the note,’ had the plan, the stockpile of meds, how to disperse my property among my family,” Navarro, 51, recently wrote on Instagram alongside the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline logo. “I was ready to go.”
The musician and “Ink Master” host — who’s been open about his struggles with addiction and his abusive upbringing (his mother was murdered by an abusive boyfriend when Navarro was 15) — sought help before it was too late.
“Luckily, as a last ditched effort, I reached out. I spoke to my closest friends and loved ones,” he wrote. “I sought therapy and at times, psychiatry, alternative medicines, even hospitalization. Whatever it took.”
“What I learned is that through the process, circumstances and feelings shift,” he continued. “As the tide comes in and rolls out, the universe takes many shapes and constantly evolves. We are made of the same stuff. We are constantly changing and evolving and flowing … sometimes scary, sometimes beautiful, sometimes lonely, sometimes supported. Hang in there to allow the process and the shapes to change. I can tell you 100 [percent] that they do.”
