BTS’s Jimin Admits That Although He Lost Many Things, There Was Always Something He Gained From It

This is all a part of growing up.

BTS‘s Jimin has always been genuine in his feelings and gratitude towards the opportunities that have been given to him and the power that he holds.

His mature viewpoint in his journey as an artist have touched many fans and they hope that they can continue to be his reason and happiness throughout this journey.

He felt that although he lost many things, there was always something that he gained from it.

Even with loss I learned a lot of things and I’ve also gained things in the process. In the beginning, I lost friends, the people who see me as I truly am, as well as my freedom.

He admitted that at that time, he didn’t care what others thought of him because what he was doing was so important.

That’s how I felt at first. When we debuted, I didn’t need all those things. I thought “It’s okay. I don’t need them. I’ll do what I have to do.” Those were my thoughts. What I was doing at that time was so important that it didn’t matter if other people looked at me strangely or left my side.

He then began to feel the loneliness and started to look at the people around him.

Then when I got halfway, I started feeling lonely, and that feeling of loneliness made me notice the people around me.

He feels that the pattern of losing and gaining is a natural way of life and is the only way we as people can mature and grow up.

It’s hard to definitely say that I lost something, because there were things that I gained in the process. For instance, If I lost friends, I learned who my real friends are and got to make new friends. It may have felt like I lost my freedom, but I’m actually enjoying even greater freedom. I think I got to learn these things as I grew up.

Jimin has always been true with his fans and they can’t think him enough for being so open about sharing his past struggles and experiences throughout this journey.
