In a special World Mental Health Day interview for the podcast Therapy for adolescents, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry spoke about the importance of mental health, especially during a pandemic. Meghan, in particular, spoke about the challenges she faces as a person in the public eye. She told podcast hosts that she sees the harm social media can do and how it “ends up being a place where there’s a lot of disconnection.”
“I can speak personally too,” she says. “I’m told that in 2019 I was the most hunted person in the world – male or female. Now, eight months ago, I wasn’t even visible. I was on maternity leave or with a baby, but I could just be made and produced. It is almost insurmountable. It’s so big you can’t even think about what it feels like, because I don’t care if you’re 15 or 25, if people say things about you that aren’t true, what that fact on your mental and emotional health is so damaging. “She added that she and Harry use their own personal experiences to talk to people, keeping in mind that everyone’s experiences are different.” We all know what it’s like to have our feelings hurt. . We all know what it’s like to be isolated or thirsty. “
Meghan also spoke about the essential tools everyone uses to feel better and “grounded” in their sanity. She added that she enjoys doing a journal. “It allows me to reflect on where I’m from, and with that comes a lot of perspective. I think most of us can all connect with the idea that sometimes when you go through something, you have it. ‘impression the biggest thing in the whole world. I think when you look back in a year and yes it was still great, it wasn’t that great comparatively. And it’s not to diminish what it was, it’s all of a sudden when you’ve got a perspective that’s only visible when you’ve got people to check you in with that … I think it’s really valuable so that everything does not become overwhelming, so there is always a way to overcome something. “
This interview comes after a huge year for Meghan and Harry. Eight months after the birth of their son, they announced that they were planning to “step down” from their roles as members of the royal family. The couple eventually reunited in Los Angeles with their almost 18-month-old son and moved into their Montecito home this summer.
In July, the couple filed a lawsuit for invasion of privacy over photos taken of Archie by drone. On Thursday, the X-17 Photo News Agency apologized for the matter to Meghan and Harry and agreed to hand over the photos.
“We apologize to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their son for the distress we have caused,” X17 said in a statement. “We were wrong to offer these photographs and to commit ourselves not to do so again.”
