Khloé Kardashian is being up about her struggles with mental illness.
Khloé discussed her ongoing struggle with anxiety as she was ready to appear on The Late Late Show with James Corden during Thursday’s edition of The Kardashians.
Khloé, 37, confessed she has terrible anxiety and recently felt like she was “having a heart attack” during a run-in with paparazzi while sitting with her best friend Malika Haqq.
She said to Malika, 39, “I have to do James Corden. “I’m just so nervous about going. It’s more often the aftermath than the interview. Something s— used to be entertaining, but now I have to listen to everyone say it, judge you, overanalyze everything you say, or rip this apart.”
Khloé went into greater detail about how social media has affected her mental health in a confessional.
She remarked, “Social media used to be lighthearted and playful. “Trolls are unavoidable, and everything is now so negative. My appearance and my relationship with Tristan [Thompson]. Is my hairstyle correct? Why is she laughing like that? I believe I’ve reached a stage where staying home is actually safer.”
Saying a slogan like “F— the haters, tune them out” is certainly everyone’s intention, but she continued, “it’s so much easier said than done.”
Malika went to the late-night show taping with Khloé to help her feel less anxious, but nothing seemed to change for the better.
“Obviously, talking everything through has made me feel much better. People can say things like, “You don’t know them, don’t pay attention,” so easily.” Khloé elucidated.
“Trust me, I try not to, but it’s so damaging to your self-esteem, your confidence, and the way you regard yourself when I walk down the street, and then even paparazzi are heckling at you the same things you’re trying to avoid.”
Even fear of uploading images to Instagram, she added. Even when I add, “I barely did retouching,” I hesitate to upload it for fear that someone will assume I did it.
Khloé made an effort to calm her anxiety once she got to the studio and even invited her mother Kris Jenner to join her.
Kris, 66, stated in a confessional, “I believe anytime that you’re in the public eye, it simply opens you up for scrutiny and judgment about every little thing.” You really need to have a tough, thick skin, which is something we all have, but every so often, our emotions just get the better of us, and I think with Khloé, she does internalize it.
Khloé didn’t start to feel better about anything until Corden entered her dressing room prior to the show, and it was all because of his encouraging counsel.
The 43-year-old Corden said, “We all have to remember, none of these things are about you. “Anyone who behaves in that way is simply a reflection of themselves. That is all; you have nothing to do with it.
When one doesn’t even know someone, how could one possibly evaluate them? You change into something else in their minds, therefore it makes no difference. Only if I grant these words any authority do they exist.
If I let them into my very being, then they become real to me. Look, you’re at work on a Monday at four o’clock in the afternoon and drinking champagne. We triumphed!”
Afterward, upon considering his counsel, Khloé revealed in a confessional: “It sounds so cheesy, but this speech just makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Because I am aware that he is speaking to me while also having this conversation with himself, I feel understood.”
Kris continued, “We need that on a loop.
