Kristen Bell confesses about her struggle with depression and anxiety
Mental health problems have always been surrounded by stigma and people who face these issues and go through treatments for the same are looked down upon. This kind of a situation makes it very difficult for the patient to cope with his/her problems as many of them don’t even come up to confess that they are suffering from any of the mental health issues. But, this needs to change, as a person can be totally healthy only if he is fit, physically as well as mentally.
Hollywood star Kristen Bell has come up in the open to talk about how she has been living with depression and anxiety. You need to know what all she has to say about living with this condition, so that we as a society can accept that people with mental health issues are not crazy, as they are perceived to be, they should have all the rights to be treated with utmost respect.
1 Kristen Bell and her confessions
First of all, I would like to confess that I was actually kind of shocked to know that someone as chirpy and bubbly as Kristen Bell has been suffering from depression since her teenage days. And now that she has come out in the open to say it all, I only respect and love her more. She had appeared in an episode of “Off Camera With Sam Jones”, and in that interview she surprised the world by saying that she has been taking medicines to deal with depression and anxiety.
The 35-year-old actress admitted very amazingly that her “bubbly” side of the personality actually stems from her desperation to be liked by people. She said that she is an extremely co-dependent person and also confessed that she shatters a bit when people don’t like her. And it has been because of this need to be liked that she leads a life where she is kind-hearted and bubbly all the time. She agrees that all this is not healthy and that she has always tried to fight with these feelings.
