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 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 talked about how she handles social media. Jenner revealed that the amount of negativity she sees on social media affects her anxiety the most. Jenner added that social media is addictive to her despite it giving her anxiety.
“What’s affected my anxiety the most is the amount of negativity that I see. There’s just literally too much. I find that the more I’m looking at the screen, the more detached I feel with my own body or to what’s happening right in front of me. My relationship with social media is a bit addictive right now, which I don’t like and I’m not proud to say that, but I also feel like that’s something that probably most of us can relate to.”
Social media is still a very big part of Kendall Jenner and despite that, she admitted, “I don’t like that I feel the need to have social media in the first place.” She added that in the current times, “there really is no escaping it.”
Kendall Jenner then revealed one aspect of social media that “boils [her] blood” is “someone claiming a false narrative for me…I have moments of feeling like I’m breaking or feeling like I can’t take it anymore.”
“Because of social media, everything is highlighted, everything is heightened whether good or bad. I feel most of my social media anxiety is actually more the overwhelmingness of it all,”
We certainly applaud Kendall Jenner for sharing such intimate details about her mental health to raise awareness of mental health and its issues. Mental health is an important subject and should be taken very seriously, as many would agree.
