Melissa Benoist plays Supergirl on the hit CW show. But in real life, the actress is not afraid to admit that she’s got a lot of struggles – one of which is anxiety.
But the actress is committed to being open with her fans regarding her anxiety, and keeping the conversation going on mental health issues.
In an interview with Coveteur, Melissa talked about how she deals with celebrity life with her condition. She shared:
“[Finding balance] is something I still don’t know how to deal with yet, because I’m introverted in a really extroverted position. The anxiety is there on days like today, when I’m running around and doing press, talking as Melissa and not as a character.”
The words fail me sometimes, and I kind of retreat back into my shell, and that constriction in your chest is always there. But it’s good to be a little afraid and push yourself out of your comfort zone.”
Melissa adds that she wants to be courageous for her fans, so that they don’t feel ashamed fo things they may be going through.
You truly are Super, Melissa!
