No one can know and love you when you are full of secrets and living in shame. And when we finally sit in a room full of strangers and tell them our deepest, darkest, most embarrassing secrets, and they all laugh with us, and we don’t feel like trash for the first time in our lives, and we feel seen for the first time in our lives for who we really are, then we can start going out into the world and operating as human beings with hearts, and pretending to be nothing.

It’s admirable that some stars are publicly admitting to these kinds of conditions, as this can certainly help encourage more people to seek help.
