What was the biggest challenge of
overcoming depression for you?
When you’re experiencing success in
your career, there is this pressure to put on a happy face. Like, “Yay,
everything’s great!” And it’s painful when on the inside, you’re feeling
depressed because you’re like, “Wait, I’m supposed to be really happy right
now. All these great things are happening in my life.” I was so low, but I felt
like I had to hide it because so many people know me as fun, happy, cheerful
Kether. I felt, like, guilty if I wasn’t being fun, happy and cheerful all the
time. And then I got scared that I would push people away. So I had to learn to
allow myself to experience some really shitty feelings -- for me, that was the
only way to come out the other side. And as painful as it was, that was what I
needed to do in order to see the light again.
