Pop star Camila Cabello very recently talked about having work-induced anxiety issues due how she could overcome the same through therapy during the lockdown. She further recalled those days when she used to work non-stop.
Opening up about her experience during the difficult days, Camila told an outlet, "Before lockdown, I was burnt out. I was living with a really high amount of anxiety. It was too much and it was not sustainable. I felt like I was running with a broken leg but I wasn't really listening to how I felt."
"I kept telling myself everything was good, 'I should feel fine, I should feel OK.' What I needed to do was say, 'How do I actually feel?' and letting that be OK. I needed to give myself permission to ask for help -- because I needed help. I needed therapy. The pandemic gave me that pause to say, 'Let's not carry on running on this broken leg, let's fix it," she added.
The Senorita star further talked about working endlessly and how it affected her.
"That's something I would never do now. If I felt like that again, I'd just say, 'Sorry, guys'. I know now I have to take care of myself. No one is going to know when I've reached a limit other than me, so I have to take care of myself in that way," Camila said.
The three-time Grammy nominee confessed to achieving success at a high-price, "Anxiety is something I've struggled with since I was a teenager and so this has actually been a really positive time for me. I've learned a lot about balance, about saying no to things because it's better for me to have that hour of therapy and see my friends. It's about not allowing myself to get to the point where I'm burnt out."
She credited her new therapist for all the stability she has been experiencing lately.
"I have definitely seen the benefits in my relationships too. In fact, that's probably one of the most important things - having that stability and having time to deepen intimate relationships," Camila said.
