It’s easy to mistake celebrities as having it all, but behind the closed doors of those sprawling mansions, many of the world’s most famous people are hiding ongoing battles with severe depression. As it turns out, a lifestyle of money and fame does not automatically shield one from mental illness, and in some cases, it even intensifies the feelings of sadness, loneliness, and anxiety that contribute to depression.
Many celebrities fall into depression because they find nothing on top. The thing they’re struggling for isn’t exactly worth it. The real thing they want is happiness which is just a state of mind anyone can have anytime regardless of name, fame and money.
Celebrities are humans too, and many have battled depression while living in the public eye. But by speaking out about their illnesses without shame, these famous people have shown that not only have they survived, they’re determined to make mental illness a normal topic of conversation for anyone suffering — famous or otherwise.
