Actor Dwyane Johnson has left a lot of people in shock recently after he shared with the world some more startling details regarding his battle with depression.
The star says he’s learned so much in such a short span of time and it’s sometimes really hard for him to come to terms with everything going on in his mind.
The actor was quick to recall three separate battles with depression and how hard he worked to combat each of them. Moreover, the star was also very specific in terms of mentioning how his journey was certainly not easy.
He gave praise to those that go through mental health struggles on a daily basis but choose to remain silent. Clearly, he was not one of them and is now raising awareness on the matter.
At that time, he had no clue about what exactly mental health was. But now, he’s making it a point to make others understand that it’s equally important to other aspects of your health.
“Paying attention to your mind is so important. You can’t ignore it. I used but not anymore”- the celeb continued to mention.
“I did not have a clue about what depression was during that time either. But what I did realize is that I did not want to be there. I was not in the right head space. I just wanted to get out of it”- the famous actor continued.
The news about the star’s battle with mental health comes at a time when he was announcing his cameo role for the hit film series, Fast and the Furious.
Johnson says that days used to pass by and he would not work out or feel like going into meetings. Everything was just so negative around him and his mood was never great either.
And when that phase went by, his divorce put him in the same dark place. But he reached out for help and hopes others reading about his journey would do the same because it’s alright to do so.
I no just how he feels, it makes you feel so alone an takes you 2 the darkest places, a feeling like you dont belong an the world is against you, very lonely place, an at times its hard 2 fight bk, but you keep goin even though you dont want 2 be here, the only thing that keeps me goin is my children an more so my grankids even though its hard 4 them 2 cope with me when the dreaded depression strikes again, so hope he stays strong xx
