Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson opens up about his depression battle

Dwayne Johnson has opened up in a recent interview about his battle with depression. He said, “I found that, with depression, one of the most important things you could realize is that you’re not alone. You’re not the first to go through it; you’re not going to be the last to go through it. I wish I had someone at that time who could just pull me aside and say, ‘Hey, it’s gonna be okay. It’ll be okay.'”

He went on to say, “Hold on to that fundamental quality of faith. Have faith that on the other side of your pain is something good.”

He said that he struggled with his depressed in his early twenties as his career began to flounder. He was passed over by the NFL and he was cut from the Calgary Stampeders after two months on the roster. He said that he lived with his parents in a small apartment where he hit a low point.

He said, “You just feel like you’re alone. You feel like it’s only you. You’re in your bubble.”

After he became a professional wrestler, he said, “It wound up being one of the greatest chapters in my life.”
