Mental health is such an important issue to conquer, and we’re so glad that more and more public figures are making a point to discuss it. Robin William’s daughter Zelda recently opened up about depression in an eye-opening interview with Teen Vogue, and we love every point she brought up. This lady is definitely someone we look up to.
Williams has obviously seen the possible effects of depression in her own life. After the death of her father shocked the world, it was important to note that anyone could suffer — even someone you never expected. Depression is a silent illness, and the more people open up about seeking help, the less alone others may feel.
By being able to identify the disease, we can fight it a little bit better.
On the internet, Williams has detailed her own battle through her Tumblr, reaching an audience of many.
Williams stressed the importance to keep busy with positive activities. She acts, writes, directs, and tries to find happiness in little tasks to try and battle her own negative feelings.
It’s such an interesting way to think about it. But it’s true — sometimes, you just have to work hard to figure out what makes you happy.
For Williams, she said she’s lucky — her mental health issues don’t stem from a chemical imbalance, like it often does with others.
But as you know, being happy typically isn’t as easy as it may seem — and Williams is quite aware of that.
We’re so impressed with Zelda Williams’ strength. She’s a constant reminder that things often get better, and that all of us can conquer the many hurdles that life has to offer.
