Singer Summer Walker recently took to Instagram to announce to her fans that she will be shortening her current tour due to her having social anxiety.

“I truly appreciate all the support and love. As you know, I have been very open about my struggle with social anxiety. I want to continue to be healthy and to make music for y’all, so I have decided to cut down some of the dates on the tour,” she wrote as the caption of a video where she explained why she made the decision to shorten her tour.

“I hope you all can understand. I’m grateful for every single one of you, and I hope that you understand that wellness/mental health is important. All canceled dates will be refunded asap. Thank you.”

“I just want to say that I really appreciate anyone who genuinely loves my music. Plays the f—- out of my music. Comes to the shows, meet and greets,  and really respects my personality,” Walker said in the video.

“Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to finish this tour because it doesn’t coexist with social anxiety and my integrated personality. I hope that people really understand and respect that at the end of the day I’m a person. I have feelings. I get tired. I get sad. and it’s just a lot. I don’t want to lose myself for someone else. I want to give y’all what I can. I’m going to keep making music. I’m going to do a few shows but I can’t finish.”
