“Thank you for everything. I am growing. Opinions don’t matter anymore, but you are welcomed to wasting yours, Harris wrote on Instagram. "To anyone that struggles. I will be sharing how to get help in a few days. I will take a break to focus on my recovery and healing and be with the people who love me.
