Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson isn’t someone you’d probably expect to have been depressed. He smashes box office hit after box office hit, is loved universally for the entertainment he provides both with the WWE and in Hollywood and generally lives a charmed life.
However, depression can happen to anyone and many successful and famous people who seem to have everything going for them battle with this problem, reports The Lad Bible.
His life before wrestling is well documented, having been dropped from American Football team the Calgary Stampeders in 1995 and spending months unsure what he wanted to do with his life.
This period manifested itself into depression and last night on Oprah’s Master Class he opened up about it publicly for the first time. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that those months saw The Rock fall into a fit of depression.
Episodes can last several months and sometimes even longer and are far more unpleasant than shorter episodes of unhappiness. Reasons for becoming depressed can be obvious but in many cases there is no blatant catalyst for depression to have sunk in.
Regardless of how it came about, depression can be dealt with – just look at The Rock.
