Ryan Reynolds recently opened out on how his girls have influenced him to be more open about his mental health issues.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor wore his emotions on his sleeve.
He continued by adding, “Part of it is because I have three kids at home, and part of my responsibility as a father is to model behaviors and model what it’s like to be unhappy, worried, or furious.” That there is enough room for everything.”
“The house where I grew up wasn’t actually designed for me. That’s not to imply my parents were careless, but they were raised in a different period.”
“Destigmatizing things and starting a discourse about [mental health] is a part of it. I know that when I’ve been at my lowest, it’s typically because I’ve felt alone in my feelings.”
“So I don’t necessarily linger on it or mourn it when others talk about it, but I believe it’s essential to talk about it. And when you talk about it, it sort of liberates others.
