Kylie Jenner Opens Up About Her Personal Struggles With Anxiety

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 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.”

Emily Osment Wasn't As Happy As She Looked During Filming the Final Season of 'Young & Hungry'

Emily Osment Wasn't As Happy As She Looked During Filming the Final Season of 'Young & Hungry'

Emily Osment always seems like the happiest, kindest person ever, and we’re positive that it’s true.

However, the Young & Hungry star just admitted to fans on social media that she wasn’t the happiest while filming the final episodes of the Freeform series – and the show being cancelled wasn’t the reason at all.

It actually had to do with her mental health, and just goes to prove that you never, ever know what a person is going through. The final episodes were filmed over a year ago.

“Special shout out to mental health,” she wrote on Twitter last night. “Your own sanity is so much more important than anything else.”

Emily added, “Weird seeing this season’s young and hungry from over a year ago when I was 20lbs heavier and deeply sad. Get yourself right. Get yourself first. It all falls in line.”

Looks like Emily is feeling much, much better than she was before and it’s all because she put herself first.

Rowan Blanchard Opens Up About Going To Therapy & Her Own Mental Health

Rowan Blanchard Opens Up About Going To Therapy & Her Own Mental Health

One of the best things about Rowan Blanchard is that she’s using her platform for amazing things – like polarizing terms, wage inequality, white feminism and much more.

This month, the 16-year-old actress and activist has opened up about mental health, and how she’s caring for her own mental health, too.

Speaking with Time, Rowan admits that she, like many others, goes to therapy to tackle her depression.

“I’m lucky to go to a therapist. I talk about it with my friends. It’s not this burden I carry. It’s not like a thing that’s my dirty little secret,” Rowan says. “I’m very frank and very open, and that has been aid to me, just letting my friends know I’m really depressed so I might cancel on you five minutes before I’m supposed to meet you.”

“I’ve had that relationship to a lot of my friends because we can talk about our mental health with each other, but we can’t rely on adults the same way to understand that when we tell each other we’re sad, we’re being serious,” she adds. “People who are close in age can understand that things are more surreal and devastating at this age because everything’s happening for the first time.”

Rowan also opened up about the whole term of “self-care” and what it really means to her.

“Part of my self-care was being like, not all of my life has to be public,” she shares. “I realized that I was sharing, sharing, sharing, because that was the culture I was used to, and once I started gaining a platform and writing things about my mental health I realized, oh, actually, it’s up to me what I want to say.”

Rowan continues, “That felt like a way of self-care — it’s up to me, it’s my voice, I can choose how I want to use it. I’m f***ing up every day in my regular life, I’m just not posting about it…I’m trying to figure out how to be a good person, a good daughter, a good sister, a good friend.”

Katie Stevens Opens Up About Anxiety Struggles in Powerful Instagram

Katie Stevens Opens Up About Anxiety Struggles in Powerful Instagram

Katie Stevens is just one of the many people on the planet who suffer from anxiety.

Because May is mental health awareness month, The Bold Type actress opened up a powerful conversation on her Instagram Stories early this morning (May 22) with her fans about mental health.

“Over the past few years, my anxiety has gotten worse as I’ve gotten further into my career,” Katie writes honestly. “I worry about everything, am constantly afraid of the worse case scenarios happening to me, I cry when I’m overwhelmed, cry on planes, cry even when nothing is really wrong. It’s alsos caused me to not be able to acclimate to their new lifestyle of being ‘known’ by people.”

“Everyone’s state of mental health is different,” she adds, “I’m sure some people read this and think ‘oh, woe is you…you have anxiety sometimes’. I’m aware that some people’s anxiety is crippling to the point of not being able to get out of bed, or being sick…although sometimes I’ve felt that way, it’s not an every day [thing] for me.”

“But this is also not about comparison. This is just me wanting to share my story with you guys, in case it can in some way make one of you not feel alone.”

Katie continues in her message, “I know many people who suffer from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder etc. and i’m proud to say that we support each other and find ways to get help (therapy, meditation, and self help books work for me).”

“Let’s stop putting such a stigma on mental health, and being ashamed, so that people who are suffering can feel confident and comfortable to say that they need help, and can seek help. All this to say…anxiety is normal. I live with it, try to love myself through it and am thankful to have love and support around me.”
