During the Teen Mom star’s drug scandal, she hit rock bottom, and now we have learned that she even contemplated suicide as a result. When she divorced her second husband, lost custody of the twin daughters and was accused of drug abuse, Leah Messer was in a horrible mental state.
Now, she admitted that killing herself had crossed her mind during those dark times.
On the latest Teen Mom episode, during a motivational speech gig, Messer got stage fright!
However, she chose not to quit and booked a second one.
That is when she opened up about her suicidal thoughts when she was younger, noting that she had daddy issues.
‘My childhood was not the best, and then I had my own kids, and it was like, ‘I am responsible for not just one, but two little ones.’ I did not know what I was doing you guys. I had no idea what I was doing, but I just tried to be the best mom I could be at all times. I hit rock bottom, I did not know my worth. Today I stand in my power. I know my worth.’
She then had her audience members write down their fears on a piece of paper and burn it.
It is safe to say that her motivational speech was a real success.
