Kendall Jenner is one of the most popular celebrities in the world right now. However, with fame comes a lot of pressure and it eventually takes its on toll on one’s mental health.
Jenner has started being more open regarding her mental health issues. While speaking in Vogue’s “Open Minded” series, Jenner revealed that she started experiencing horrific cases of anxiety since she was just 8 years old but wasn’t aware of what was happening to her.
“I remember being really young – I’d say 8, 9, 10 – and having shortness of breath and going to my mom and telling her that.”
Jenner revealed that as she continued to gain popularity and became more busy, her anxiety started to get worse. It came to a point where she felt like she was dying.
“I think being overworked and being in the situation that I’m in now is kind of what set it out of control in a way I’ve had times where I feel like I need to be rushed to the hospital because I think my heart’s failing, and I can’t breathe, and I need someone to help me.
Sometimes I think I’m dying.”
Jenner added that despite being so wealthy at 25, she is still a normal human being in the end and can feel everything a normal person can.
I’m still a human being at the end of the day. No matter what someone has or doesn’t have, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have real-life feelings and emotions.”
We certainly applaud Kendall Jenner for sharing such intimate details about her mental health to raise awareness of mental health and its issues.
