- Rock shared that the process made him realise that in a lot of negative interactions, he was actually the problem
Deciding to go to therapy is not always an easy decision but American comedian Chris Rock decided to take the plunge. Chris recently revealed that he sees two therapists so that he can cope with a non-verbal learning disorder.
The comedian also shared that he goes to therapy so that he can heal from the trauma that came with being the only black student at an all-white school.
He spoke about how beneficial the process has been for him. A non-verbal learning disorder is a condition that makes it difficult for people to pick up non-verbal cues.
Before he was diagnosed, Chris thought that it was his fame that kept him from connecting with others but after some time he started to realise that it was much deeper than that.
"Any time someone would respond to me in a negative way, I’d think, ‘Whatever, they’re responding to something that has to do with who they think I am'," said Chris.
The comedian also shared that after going to therapy, he registered that a lot of his issues were because of him and not because of others.
"I'm really hard on myself. I need to listen. I need to take chances," he said.
