Award-winning Hollywood actress, Taraji P. Henson who recently opened a mental health foundation as bravely revealed her own struggle with depression in a sit down with Variety. According to her, “I suffer from depression, “That’s the only way I can get through it. You can talk to your friends, but you need a professional who can give you exercises.”My anxiety is kicking up, even more, every day, and I’ve never really dealt with anxiety like that,” It’s something new.
”I think there’s a misconception with people in the limelight that we have it all together, and because we have money now and are living out our dreams, everything is fine. That’s not the case,” she clarified. “When they yell ‘Cut’ and ‘That’s a wrap,’ I go home to very serious problems. I’m still a real human.”I remember the first time I went, I was angry because I was like, ‘She didn’t tell me anything! She didn’t tell me anything!’ You’re not going to figure it all out in one sitting,” We’re walking around broken, wounded and hurt, and we don’t think it’s OK to talk about it. We don’t talk about it at home. It’s shunned. It’s something that makes you look weak,” she said. “We’re told to pray it away. Everyone was always asking me, ‘Do you have a charity?’ Well, dammit, this is going to be my calling, because I’m sick of this.” Photo Credit: Getty
