Dove Cameron Calls Out Media For Speculating On Her Sadness & How They Portray Mental Health

Dove Cameron Calls Out Media For Speculating On Her Sadness & How They Portray Mental Health

Dove Cameron isn’t naming names, but she is calling out media outlets for speculating on her mental health.

The 23-year-old singer and actress shared some Twitter updates on how the media is assuming they know why she is sad.

“seeing some articles speculating about “why” i must be “sad”, & feeling very frustrated with how the media/some people portray mental health,” she started off. “yes, many things have happened in my life, there are probably many easily summarized reasons that an outsider could easily grasp, or label many deaths, losses, many things that you could literally point to and say “it’s probably that”. and while those things are massive contributing factors, and everyone holds grief and loss differently, i sometimes feel that defining sadness or suffering/any and all pain is very diminishing of the human experience of pain.”

“those things, those losses, define me in so many ways. but to say that they are the only sources of pain and sadness in my life, is simply not true. i attempt to talk about my mental health as much as i feel is reasonable as much as i feel is healthy for me,” Dove continued. “but my trauma, my depression, my anxiety and whatever falls in between those things, or goes along with those things, or has a cause and effect relationship with those things, is very complex and varied, every day. because humans are complex. & attempting to sum up trauma/depression with ONE event that we can all point to, leaves little to no room for me to be dealing with my own things, as we all are. you dont know everything about someone’s life, even if you think you do. even if you want to.”

“thank you , all of you who leave room for me to be sad (for a reason you might not know, or might not have read about), thank you to those of you who leave room for me to be wherever i am, even if you don’t get to understand,” she concluded.

Dove Cameron Reminds Fans to Prioritize Your Mental Health

Dove Cameron Reminds Fans to Prioritize Your Mental Health

Dove Cameron left a therapy session and wanted to send a reminder to fans.

The 25-year-old singer and actress reiterated that it’s important to prioritize your mental health.

“just out of another therapy/intensive trauma session. feeling a bit lighter, but also heavily reminded of just how much real work i have to do/pain i have to untangle. this life is hard, y’all. and mental health/needing help is nothing to be ashamed of. take care of yourselves.🖤,” Dove wrote on Twitter.

“also: i know therapy isn’t something everyone has access to/can afford, & i wish that wasn’t the case. but in whatever way you can, whatever you have access to; please prioritize your inner state/mental health. before you can help anyone else, you must help yourself. you matter,” she added.

Laina Morris Announces She's Leaving YouTube

Laina Morris Announces She's Leaving YouTube

Laina Morris is breaking up with YouTube.

The 28-year-old YouTuber, who was the inspiration for the “Overly Attached Girlfriend” meme, announced in a new video posted Wednesday (July 24) that she’s leaving the platform for good.

Laina explained in her video that being on YouTube started to take a toll on her mental health.

“I would say after about a year of doing YouTube, I started to feel the stress and the weight of the job more than I ever had before,” Laina said. “It started to feel like a job more than it had before.”

The viral star went on to explain the specific pressures she was under.

“I started to feel a lot of pressure to make up my mind career-wise, figure out where I was gonna go with YouTube or after YouTube, beyond YouTube, and I couldn’t do it confidently and it really stressed me out,” Laina told her viewers. “After about a year and a half of doing it, I started to feel a bit depressed. And starting around 2014, I would say, the beginning of 2014…I’d sort of landed myself in a real deep depression, and I was keeping it a real deep secret from everyone around me.”

“I felt ashamed and I felt guilt for being stressed and overwhelmed in a world and with job and opportunities that were so great, I didn’t understand why I couldn’t handle it. For years, I was battling a really complicated and difficult…and for me for some reason, almost embarrassing, thing that is depression,” she added.

In 2017, Laina took a break from YouTube that gave her a chance to get some clarity.

“Taking a small break turned into not posting for an entire year,” Laina said. “Then since that last video, it’s been another year. And in that year, I have gone to therapy, I have really thought this through, I have time and time again, battled in my head, ‘Do I wanna do this? Do I wanna quit YouTube?’ And I’ve come to this point and this moment today where I can confidently sit in front of this camera and say that it’s time for me to say goodbye to you guys and officially end this thing that I’ve been really holding on to and not wanting to let go of.”

Kylie Jenner is opening up in a new Instagram about her struggles with anxiety.

The 21-year-old beauty mogul got real with her fans on the social platform during her all-girls trip.

“I’m proud of myself, my heart, and my strength,” Kylie started out. “Growing up in the light with a million eyes on you just isn’t normal. I’ve lost friends along the way and I’ve lost myself too sometimes.”

She continued, “My first tattoo was ‘sanity’ to remind myself everyday to keep it. I’ve struggled with anxiety my whole young adult life and after my baby i dealt with all the internal ups and downs. I felt like i had to find myself completely again. I keep a whole lot to myself but just wanted to share and let you know I’m human.”

“My life is not perfect and what you see here on social media is just the surface.”

Kylie also added a few words of wisdom for others struggling as well: “Be gentle with yourself, move on, and let go. we are all capable of great things, worthy of love, and allowed to express ourselves. do more of what makes you happy and be unapologetic. now is your season ✨ we all have a magnificent destiny.”

Becky G Explains How Opening Up to Fans About Her Anxiety Helped Her

Becky G says her fans have played an important role in her mental health journey.

The 22-year-old singer and actress opened up about her decision to tell fans about her struggles with anxiety in a new interview with IANS.

“There are a lot of topics these days that I feel like we are now more comfortable talking about. For me, two of those things have been anxiety and depression,” Becky said. “I feel those things are very real for me. I never realized how much of a real thing it was, because I thought I was just expected to go through these emotions and do the things – ‘Do the dance Becky G,’ ‘Becky sing the song… it is what you are supposed to do.’”

Not only is it becoming easier for people to open up about anxiety and depression, but Becky says that taking her struggles public actually helped her in powerful ways.

“Talking about it helped me in my journey,” she said. “Knowing that there is help out there, that people are with you [helped one cope with it]. There are a lot of things that will happen and you will have no power over this. [Realizing this] has been very helpful for me.”
