The American actress and former television host, Lisa Olivia Munn has revealed and detailed her depression story and mental health issues, she faced in the past. Notably, Demi Lovato, the popular singer, and Munn have done a great interaction related to mental health.
Demi’s show, ‘The Demi Lovato Show,’ a 10- episode series is premiering on ‘The Roku Channel’ from 30 July. In the first episode, the actress Munn was invited to the show and she shared how she got rid of anxiety and depression, and how she coped with suicidal thoughts.
The former host noted, “People who deal with depression, like you and me, and who can have suicidal thoughts, anytime you get to that place and it seems like things are too tough and you just can’t take it anymore, just ask yourself if you can hold on another day.”
She added to her statement and said, “Because, if you take your life, game over. It’s done. You don’t get to see what will happen in 10 years. The pain is really tough. I know you know. We’ve been there. But if I had ended my life when I wanted to, there is so much I would have missed. And that’s worth staying for.”
The way Olivia shared her story makes it clear that she is very brave and handled herself during the harsh times, very well. Munn bravely speaks and shares her mental health journey with all.
In 2018, Olivia after the suicidal deaths of chef Anthony Bourdain and designer Kate Spade, the actress shared her thoughts over her social media.
That time, the actress wrote, “I have lived with anxiety and sporadic bouts of depression for most of my adult life. 10 years ago I tackled it, learned to fully understand it, and haven’t felt the dark depths of depression in about a decade.”
Further, she noted, “For those who don’t understand depression, when someone is in that place it’s not because they want to die … it’s because the ongoing, relentless darkness is too painful to endure anymore. You don’t have to suffer from anxiety and depression to feel that low. Something very sad or traumatic can happen to you just once to bring about that feeling of despair.”
