Kendall Jenner Reveals How She Almost Quit Her Career Due to This Mental Illness
Being a celebrity can be a blessing and a curse. While the fame and fortune they get from their profession can solve a lot of problems, it doesn’t necessarily mean that their life is any easier than ours.
Kendall Jenner wants to bust the myth that celebrities have everything they could wish for in life and more. Although her modeling career is bringing in millions — after all, she is the highest paid model in the industry — and her family’s reality TV show has contributed to her popularity, she admits that she is far from being comfortable.
In a recent LOVE Magazine interview, Kendall came clean on the reasons why we haven’t seen her on the runway, as of late. As she put it, the reason she didn’t do any show in the just-concluded season is because she was swamped with work in LA, and she would die of the pressure had she accepted any more responsibilities. In her own words, work would have literally driven her crazy.
Instead of being on runways, she chose to take some time off and give herself some privacy. Kendall stayed home, resting and giving priority to her health. Well, she did cheat and modeled for Versace in a Milan show in June, but the model admits she was at the brink of a mental breakdown from all the work-related stress and had to take a step back to focus on her health.
Not vilifying her career choice, Kendall was quick to put across that she appreciates her career and cherishes her family. She even went on to say that she feels particularly blessed, and thinks that her life is extraordinary. However, she admitted that she at times wishes that she could just lead a normal life, and enjoy simple things like taking a walk or going out with friends without attracting any attention.
The Kardashian-Jenner family is not new to online hate, and Kendall hasn’t been spared. However, they are a close-knit family who stand up for each other and Kim has come to Kendall’s defense each time she has been attacked. People have often described the model as a self-absorbed, despicable individual, which Kim blames on a mental health issue that the model struggles with.
According to the mother of four, her sister suffers from anxiety and her episodes paralyze her into a standoffish nature, which people wrongly interpret. According to the older sister, when Kendall is feeling anxious, she is a compassionate and generous individual.
Heal the World with Love
This isn’t the first time we’re hearing of Kendall’s anxiety, and the model herself has spoken about it. Earlier in the year, she revealed to Harper’s Bazaar that she struggles with debilitating anxiety, so much so that she gets major panic attacks in the middle of the night.
She admitted to struggling with everything around her and the world in general. Apparently, all the hate gets to her sometimes, and she just wishes she could spread love all around the world.
To save herself from all the anguish, Kendall has resorted to ignoring all comments on whatever she posts online. However, she still admits that Instagram is a fun platform to be on, and that she loves seeing what people are up to. Still, she says that she’s more into puppies and other cute animals. Without a doubt, such images help calm her down.
