Chris Rock On Goes To Therapy 7 Hours A Week Amid COVID-19 Pandemic: I Could Be Very Hard On Myself, I Need To Relax
Earlier this year Chris Rock revealed that he was diagnosed with non-verbal learning disorder (NVLD) and that he goes to therapy for 7 hours a week.
In a new interview, Chris Rock, 55, says that he increased the amount of therapy visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I learned that I could be very hard on myself. Like really, really hard on myself, and I need to relax. And I need to listen, I need to take chances.”
Chris Rock, who sat down with TV host Gayle King for the interview, says that he also learned how to swim during the pandemic. He also says that in therapy you “have to tell the truth” and be “prepared to tell the worst part of yourself every week.”
“Sometimes I wasn’t kind, and sometimes I wasn’t listening, and sometimes I was selfish, and some, you know, a lot of times. And sometimes, you know, I took advantage of circumstances, and positions, of you know, just everyday things. And you know, it’s ultimately, who do you want to be?”
The actor said he has two therapists and while in quarantine he is also examining how is childhood trauma has affected him.
