11. “I don't have an issue with marrying an actor, though it's definitely tough. I work with actors and interact with star wives, and I don't know how they do it.

10 Quotes on Her Journey With Overcoming Depression


60 Quotes by Deepika Padukonenshot 2018-11-22 at 4.21.13 PM


1. “It all started on February 15 last year. I'd won all my awards and all the appreciation for 2013 and everything had happened. It was a great time. But I woke up one morning, just feeling empty. I woke up feeling directionless. I didn't know where to go. I didn't know what to do.” As told to NDTV


2. “I kept crying. I think my mother sort of sensed that something was wrong. She asked me if it had something to do with my personal life. Is it your work? Has someone said something to you? And it was none of these reasons.” As told to NDTV


3. “There were times I'd feel ok and there were times I'd feel really low. I remember attending a conclave exactly this year, last time. I'd cry in my room and then I had to go down and give this talk in front of so many people, with a smile on my face like everything's ok. Then I had to fly back and again I'd have to lock myself up in a bathroom and cry because there's just so many people looking at you all the time.” As told to NDTV


4. “This really is not about me right now, it's really about the lives that hopefully, we will impact. For everyone who's watching this interview and for people who have been through or are going through right now. Even if we can impact one life or save that one person from taking their life because they're just so down and out, I think we've achieved what we wanted to.” As told to NDTV


5. “Of course, there are people who are going to think, ‘oh, it's timed with some film release.' Or there are people who are going to say ‘oh, she's getting paid for supporting a cause like this'. If we're a nation that's the most depressed in the world, there's definitely a much, much larger issue that we all need to sort of focus on and work towards.” As told to NDTV


6. “I had a lot of strange questions in my head. Why is that person so happy, then why am I so sad? And then I'd start feeling even worse. There's a huge difference in being sad and being depressed. I know that sadness comes from a different place in my body and having anxiety and going through depression comes from a completely different place. It does something completely different to my body.” As told to NDTV

9. “I feel like I was on auto-pilot in a sense. Of course, there's one side of me saying 'listen you have to professional, you have to reach the shoot on time, you have to do this interview because you've committed to it.' There's that part of me which is saying you have to do this, you have to do this, you have to do this.” As told to NDTV


10. “I would not have been able to come out of this if I didn't have my mum, my friends, my father who spoke to me and said it's okay to go to a doctor, it's okay to go to a psychologist, it's okay to take medication.” As told to NDTV Also Read Our Story On Deepika Padukone Face Exercise AWESOME NEWS!
