Her life may look perfect from the outside, but even celebrity Kendall Jenner struggles sometimes.
While those difficulties might be very different from our own, Kendall says fame can take a serious toll on her mental health — and I totally believe her. It can’t be easy, or fun, to grow up in a house filled with a TV crew, cameras, and strangers. She calls it “a pretty normal childhood, with a twist.”
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Kendall revealed that, like millions of other Americans, she struggles with anxiety. With Kendall’s entire life being open to public scrutiny, though, her anxiety gets intensified.
Kendall admitted that her anxiety is so bad it can actually wake her up at night. She said, “I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks… You go online, and you see everyone saying the worst things to each other, and it’s hard to stay positive.”
Kendall also said she knows exactly what she’d do if she could live without fame for a day. She would love to go to a public beach without being mobbed, or spend the day at Disneyland unnoticed.
It can be easy to forget that our words hurt people like the Kardashian-Jenners — but Kendall’s struggle with anxiety just goes to show how important kindness can be, even when you don’t think anyone will see it.
