How Katy Perry overcame depression and improved her mental health: the best motivational success story
"People talk about bullying, but you can be your own stalker in some way, you can be the person who gets in the way of success, and that was the case for me."
Katy Perry is an American artist who was born into a very conservative family. His mother and father were both pastors. His family fought financially. Sometimes they had to use food stamps and eat the food donated to the church.
Katy Perry grew up under many restrictions. He was only allowed to listen to gospel music. And the television programs were forbidden.
In 2001, he released his first album (a gospel record), but the album was not commercially successful. Only a few copies were sold.
The beginnings of Katy Perry were difficult, because she had to face many obstacles and failures before becoming who she is today. Before publishing his album "One of the Boys", which was a great success, many of his songs were archived. In 2010, Katy Perry released the album "Teenage Dreams", which became one of the best-selling albums of all time.

But mental health problems really do not care about fame, fortune, success.
Katy Perry spoke about her mental health problems, alcohol addiction and suicidal thoughts in a live therapy session.
When his album "Witness" came out in 2017 and received many negative reviews, it was a truly devastating period of his life that led him to depression.
In the past, she also suffered from alcohol addiction. Lulling his feelings and his pain with alcohol intensified with his suicidal thoughts.
"I'm embarrassed because, of course, Katy Perry is very strong, but it's difficult because I'm ashamed that she even had those thoughts and I felt so depressed or depressed."
But Katy Perry decided to get up from her disappointment and not give up so easily.
She made changes in her lifestyle and decided to start therapy. For the past five years, he has committed to regular therapy.
She focused on meditation and reconnecting with her faith. She took the time to discover herself in order to identify and destroy the negative behaviors. And because of that, she became stronger than ever.
