Meghan Markle has opened up about her mental health journey, and how being trolled mercilessly on social media impacted her.
Meghan Markle, 39, talked all things mental health when she sat down with the Teenager Therapy podcast on World Mental Health Day. The Duchess of Sussex was joined by her husband Prince Harry for the candid discussion about how being the “most trolled person” in the world affected her mental health. “I’m told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world, male or female. Now eight months of that, I wasn’t even visible. I was on maternity leave or with a baby,” Meghan began.
“But what was able to just be manufactured and churned out, it’s almost unsurvivable. That’s so big, you can’t even think of what that feels like. Because I don’t care if you’re 15 or 25, if people are saying things about you that aren’t true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging.” She also reminded fans that she’s only human, and experiences the same emotions as the rest of us.
