Ellie Goulding opens up about living with anxiety: ‘Feel like something is broken inside’

Ellie Goulding is the latest celebrity to open up about her mental health issues. With 2021 having come to a close, people are reflecting on their past struggles and looking for a more optimistic 2022. Goulding is among them. The 34-year-old singer made an honest confession about how she is doing. Sharing a long Instagram post, she wrote that she has much to be thankful for this past year, which has been the “best” of her life. The singer wrote that she became a mother this year, which is the “greatest joy” she has known. She released her first book and also performed at a Christmas concert for Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge. She has a dog and a cat that love her, along with friends and a husband who support and adore her every single day.     A post shared by elliegoulding (@elliegoulding) But, she also confessed that the past year was the hardest one yet for her. “This year has also been the hardest of my life. I’ve struggled daily, nightly, hourly with a kind of panic I didn’t even know existed. While the moments of being on stage in front of all of you have been some of the most exhilarating and calming, this year I have been struggling,” she wrote. Goulding continued, writing that her anxiety “dictated quite a lot of my life and career”, which made her “feel sad”. But, it has also made her who she is today.     A post shared by elliegoulding (@elliegoulding) “I want to tell you this on the last day of this year because so many of you have been asking how I’m doing and often do not get a reply. It’s because I’ve been too scared to admit that the answer is, not very good. I feel like something is broken inside — something that has been echoed deeply by the few I have opened up to,” the post read. Continuing, the singer added: “This is something so so many people have gone through, you may be going through right now, or might go through in the future — and I just wanted to say, and I have to remind myself all the time, that it’s not just you, it’s not just me. Crippled by anxiety.” The post ended on a positive note, with Goulding saying “we’re together and we can get through this”. “Let’s get through this together. 2022 is going to be a bright year. Positive energy. Together.” 📣 For more lifestyle news, follow us on Instagram | Twitter | Facebook and don’t miss out on the latest updates!.
