As someone who unwittingly ~keeps up with the Kardashians~, I know a lot of information about them against my will. That being said, when they're going through something serious and are setting a good example for their followers, I like to tune in from time to time.
Well, today I chose to keep up with the Kardashian/Jenners, specifically Kendall, after she released the first video in her new series with Vogue, Open Minded: Understanding Anxiety with Kendall Jenner.
The series follows Kendall as she opens up about the anxieties she's had since childhood, while talking to several experts in the psychology field to better understand what she's going through.
"I remember being really young," Kendall said. "Like, 8, 9, 10...and having shortness of breath and going to tell my mother that. In hindsight, I know that that was...anxiety."
"Being overworked and being in the situation I'm in now kinda is what set it out of control. I've had times when I think I need to be rushed to the hospital because I think my heart's failing and I cannot breathe," Kendall continued.
However, even though she's opening up about her struggles, she doesn't want "pity" from anyone and she also recognizes that she is very, very privileged.
I mean, there [are] going to be those people that say, like, "Oh, what does she have to worry about? What does she have to be anxious about?" I'll never sit here and say that I'm not fortunate — I know I live a very privileged, amazing lifesyle; I'm a very blessed girl. [But] I still have [a brain], and that thing up there...is not always happy and it's not always connecting...no matter what someone has or doesn't have, that doesn't mean they don't have real-life feelings and emotions.
