Cara Delevingne Told about Her Teen Depression
Nowadays, many celebrities like to recollect their past and tell about their difficult childhood and teenage years. And Cara Delevingne isn’t an exception. The 25 year old Cara admitted that she suffered from depression being a teenager and even had suicidal thoughts.
She tells: “If I fail at something, it's the worst thing in the world because I never forgive myself. I didn't feel like I was ever good enough. The fact I couldn't do as well as other people made me hate myself. And you're made to feel that once you get a mark, like a C, that's your mark in life; that's you as a human being. That really sat with me for a long time”.
Cara also added: “I was very good at disassociating from emotion completely. And all the time I was second-guessing myself, saying something and then hating myself for saying it. I didn't understand what was happening apart from the fact that I didn't want to be alive anymore”.
Now, Cara says that she has completely got rid of the depression thanks to love and close people: “I know it sounds really stupid, but I relied too much on love, too much on other people to make me happy, and I needed to learn to be happy by myself. So now I can be by myself, I can be happy. It took me a long time”.
