It’s always important to remind ourselves that there shouldn’t be a stigma around mental health issues. Things like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and many other problems that people face are nothing to be ashamed of. And if you’re dealing with them, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, there are tons of celebrities out there who suffer from the same thing, and they’re not afraid to talk about it.
Take Noah Cyrus, for example. While discussing her song “Lonely,” the singer got real about overcoming her struggles with depression and anxiety, and fans are so proud of her.
“I wrote this song last year, and that was one of the hardest years of my life. I felt stuck in this place that I could not get out of for a while and I felt like I had no control over my life, ” she admitted. “I just needed to get it out. I needed the conversation because I couldn’t take it in my body anymore, I couldn’t take the feeling of anxiety circling in my chest. I couldn’t take that anymore, or I was gonna explode, that’s how I felt. No one understood it, no one around me understood it.”
The brunette beauty explained that eventually, she spoke to her manager about her issues and it changed everything for her.
“Just knowing that one person on my team understood,” she continued. “I think the main focus with people with anxiety and depression is speaking out about it. That’s how I got out of it because if I would have just kept it to myself then I would have never gotten the help that I needed.”
It turns out, she’s not the only one. Stars like Dove Cameron, Cara Delevingne, Lili Reinhart, Liam Payne, Ariel Winter, Dua Lipa, Emma Watson, Zendaya, Niki DeMartino, Ariana Grande, Troian Bellisario, Madelaine Petsch, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Kira Kosarin and a ton more have all also bravely opened up about their own mental health issues, and we’re amazed by their strength.
