    Lili Reinhart Talked About Her Depression And Anxiety In A New Interview And I Want To Give Her A Hug

    "When you hear the term ‘crippling anxiety’, that’s what I had."

    Lili Reinhart is out here slaying on the digital covers of Glamour UK this month 🔥🔥🔥.

    Inside the November issue, the Riverdale and Hustlers star opened up about dealing with depression and how going to therapy helps with her anxiety.

    "Depression has affected me in so many ways. It’s something that never goes away," Lili shared. "I’ve experienced depression and anxiety. Not constantly, but I’m still experiencing it."

    "I find that talking about it and sharing my experience with other people, and reminding myself that I’m not alone has been incredibly therapeutic."

    As a teen, Lili sought out therapy to help with her social anxiety, telling Glamour UK, "I was having trouble going to school every day. I was crying before school. I would fake being sick so my mom would let me stay home."

    "Seeing the therapist allowed me to be understood. The goal for me has been to always leave therapy feeling a couple of inches taller. Feeling like I’ve alleviated myself of a problem by learning how to solve it," the 23-year-old explained.

    Although Lili admitted her relationship with her anxiety is "frustrating," she told the outlet she has come to accept it. "I’ve found a way to talk myself down when I’m getting super anxious."

    Healthy coping mechanisms? We love that for her 👏🏾!
