Celebrity Sensitivity: Pete Wentz

Pete WentzOk. I recently posted on Pete Wentz, bassist for Fall Out Boy, who has openly admitted to struggling with depression and suicidal ideation. He recently said that his relationship with Ashlee Simpson and and regular therapy sessions have helped him to overcome depression. There is no mention whether he took psych drugs as part of his recovery.

But Wentz is convinced that although he still battles with mental health issues, his relationship with Simpson has made him more emotionally balanced.

He says, “The hardest thing about depression is that it is addictive.
It begins to feel uncomfortable not to be depressed. You feel guilty
for feeling happy.

Spoken like someone who really struggles with depression. Wentz’s story underscores some points from my “about me” post that emphasizes the need for encouraging and healthy relationships.
