Zendaya has recently revealed that pandemic made her sad so she has been undergoing therapy, according to Health.
The 25-year-old singer, who is the recipient of numerous accolades, including a Primetime Emmy Award, a Satellite Award, and a Saturn Award, explained how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on her mental health.
In a recent interview with British Vogue, Zendaya said the pandemic introduced her to a type of sadness, describing it as a “kind of taste of sadness where you wake up and you just feel bad all day, like what the fuck is going on? What is this dark cloud that’s hovering over me and I don’t know how to get rid of it?”
Zendaya also shared that she is a proponent of going to therapy and that she does so herself.
She said, “Yeah, of course, I go to therapy. I mean, if anybody is able to possess the financial means to go to therapy, I would recommend they do that. I think it’s a beautiful thing.”
Zendaya further explained that the therapy is helpful for her because it allows her to talk about things with a person who is neutral, rather than a friend or family member who may have a stake in the situation, according to Health.
A strong support system from your loved ones is necessary, but a neutral person can also be an incredible resource.
Zendaya explained, “You know, there’s nothing wrong with working on yourself and dealing with those things with someone who can help you, someone who can talk to you, who’s not your mom or whatever. Who has no bias.” The article was published in Health.
