If you didn’t catch the recent headlines, the web has been a-flutter with snippets of The Rock’s recent emotional interview on Oprah’s Master Class Series. He not only shared his story and struggles with depression after being cut from the Canadian Football League in 1995, he later went to twitter to thank fans for all their support, and encouraged others to speak up when they need to. Here are a few snippets from the Master Class and for the full story, click here.
“I found that with depression, one of the most important things you can realize is that you’re not alone,” he said. “Oftentimes it happens, you just feel like you’re alone.”
In the candid video, The Rock really opens up about what it’s like to be at that low point and in a dark place where you just aren’t sure what to do next. He said, “The most important thing is to have faith that on the other side of your pain is something good.” Pretty solid advice, don’t you think?
Thx fam. Hardest thing sometimes (especially men) is asking for help. I wish I did. You're never alone. Speak up. https://t.co/rLC9ELgMpJ
