Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s secret battle with depression

Source: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s secret battle with depression: Star reveals he was ‘devastated and crying constantly’ … years after witnessing his mother’s suicide attempt at age 15

I came across this article today during the course of my regular work and my first thought was, “See, anyone could struggle with mental health issues!”

It’s easy to feel alone when I’m in the thick of things and I’m fighting thoughts and feelings I can’t even always pinpoint, and as much as I don’t ever wish it upon anyone else, it’s oddly comforting knowing I’m not alone. I’m not the only one fighting these battles. I wouldn’t be suddenly cured or immune if I was this person or that person, not even if I were rich and famous…

We’re all just people here floating around on this giant rock in the midst of this vast universe.
