Singer Ellie Goulding publicizes her mental illness on Twitter. The Briton explains, in addition to anxiety and panic attacks, they also suffer from the so-called impostor syndrome. And she explains what's behind it.
Several years ago, Ellie Goulding had publicized that from time to time she suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. Now she tells her fans on Instagram that she also has the imposter syndrome. A few days after the official "Mental Health Day", the 32-year-old singer wrote: "We all have the right to feel what we feel, whatever it is, whoever we are. Merriment, madness, or just nothing, confusion, chronic sadness … I can sometimes feel all these things within a few days, I'm so relieved to be made more aware of how hard it can be to be an artist of a tour to come home. "Although she had chosen the job itself, she was not prepared for the ups and downs, it goes on. "I know that much of my fear comes from what is called the imposter syndrome, because I do not believe enough in myself and think that I do not deserve my luck, which sometimes leads to my own Sabotage Success. "No Unknown PhenomenonThis disorder is also called Impostor Syndrome or Fraudster Phenomenon. Those affected suffer from extreme self-doubt about their own abilities, achievements, and achievements. She is constantly haunted by the fear that the alleged fraud will fly up. Some studies predict that about 70 percent of people feel occasionally and to varying degrees impostors. In 2016, Goulding had to cancel her tour because she suffered from an anxiety disorder. In an interview with the magazine "Stylist" she said back then that the acute anxiety had felt like she was dying of a heart attack. "It's a very hot, burning sensation, as if your heart were racing uncontrollably, which was extremely scary for me because I actually have a heart defect." At that time, he was constantly tired and tired and did not care about anything. "My body has simply given up." Since then, the British woman has specifically targeted her mental illnesses to the public in order to put an end to the taboo of the topic. "When you feel anxious, you feel very lonely," Goulding explained. "It feels like you're the only person in the world who feels that way." But Goulding is not alone. Only in August did she marry the art dealer Caspar Jopling in York after a two-year relationship. The singer and five-year-old Jopling had announced their engagement a year ago by ad in the British newspaper "The Times". The wedding included Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, James Blunt and Sienna Miller.
