It may be hard for some people to empathize with celebrities since they seem to have it all, but many stars deal with everyday with common struggles.
Take Alanis Morissette for example and her postpartum depression.
“I just thought it was a swampy chapter, if I soldiered it out, that it would go away. I came to realize that the longer I waited, the more intense it would become. I think if there is any goal in me talking about it, it would be to eradicate the shame around it. It’s just what happens sometimes and, for me, I just waited way too long to reach out for help.”
Well, you've reaching out for help, and that's all that matters.
We're proud of you, gurl.
