Last year, the Kardashian-Jenner family got real about their struggles with anxiety, especially Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. The sisters shared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians that they felt unsafe while traveling due to anxiety (Kim) and sleep paralysis (Kendall).
In the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Jenner opened up to interviewer Cara Delevingne about how much her anxiety has affected her and what’s at the root of the problem.
“I have such debilitating anxiety because of everything going on that I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks,” Jenner said when Delevingne asked about what keeps her up at night.
What’s causing her panic attacks? She says it’s all of the negative things going on in the world—but especially on social media.
“Where do I even start? Everything is so horrible, it’s hard to name one thing,” Jenner said. “You go online and you see everyone saying the worst things to each other, and it’s hard to stay positive. It’s hard not to get eaten alive by all the negativity.”
She added that there are times she’d just rather escape on a trip to Disneyland or just go lay on the beach: “Some days I just want to go live on a farm and not talk to anyone and just exist in the middle of nowhere.”
Jenner announced in December that she would no longer be updating her app because she needs a break from social media.
“Lately I’ve just tried to stay off it, and I definitely don’t look at comments,” she told Delevingne. “I think Instagram is still a fun place for the most part. I like going on and seeing what people are up to.” Most of the accounts she follows are pictures of cute animals.
Twitter, however, just makes her sad, Jenner said. But recently she did hop on the platform to respond to a fan’s comment about her acne on the Golden Globes red carpet.
“I just think that the world needs so much love. I wish I had the power to send Cupid around the planet, as cheesy as that sounds,” she told Delevingne.
To be honest, that sounds pretty nice right about now.
