Healing our past selfs hearts with the knowledge we have today.

The glamor of celebrity life often creates an illusion of perfection, but the reality is that famous people face the same struggles as the rest of us, including mental health issues. In recent years, a growing number of celebrities have spoken out about their mental health battles, helping to break down the stigma surrounding mental illness. 

Lady Gaga opened up about her struggles with PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Lady Gaga has used her platform to raise awareness and support for mental health. She said in an interview,  “I invented myself, Lady Gaga. I curated my life to be an expression of my pain. This is how I overcame my depression, by creating somebody that I felt was stronger than me. But…nothing was able to fix how I was genetically made. I was born this way. No matter how much success you have, no matter how many opportunities, fame, fortune no matter how many people accept you, to your face, the person that really needs to accept you is you.”

Demi Lovato admitted in an interview about her struggle with depression when she was at the top of her career when she was supposed to be the happiest. This is what she had to say about her struggle; “It was things like, I remember being 15 years old on a tour bus and watching fans follow my bus with posters and trying to get me to wave outside the window. And all I could do was just sit there and cry… And I remember being in the back of my tour bus watching my fans and crying and being like, ‘Why am I so unhappy?’ ”

By sharing their mental health struggles, celebrities show that they are relatable and vulnerable, just like their fans. By sharing their struggles and successes, famous people are helping to create a more compassionate and supportive environment for everyone. They show that we don’t have to hide our mental health issues and instead spread awareness to others about the struggles we go through in our day-to-day lives. It’s good to know that students at Ace and the rest of the world aren’t alone when it comes to this topic and even the rich and famous go through this struggle.
