Meanwhile, in the pre-recorded of Teenager Therapy, they accompanied the five teens from Anaheim, California, to tackle mental health.
Furthermore, they also spoke about other crises that are currently happening in the world.
However, in the same interview, Meghan named herself the most trolled person in the entire world in 2019.
“Now, eight months of that, I wasn’t even visible. I was on maternity leave with the baby. But was able to just be manufactured and just churned out — it’s almost unsurvivable,” she recalled.
The tumultuous year actually happened during her stay as the senior member of the royal family. But the family left the monarchy and started living in Santa Barbara, California.
The Duchess of Sussex then mentioned how people’s untrue statements could mentally and emotionally affect one person.
Sussexes push people not to hold back
During the same podcast, Meghan empathized with everyone and said that people know what it feels like to be hurt.
When asked if they ever faced a hard time seeing things positively, Prince Harry said that self-care is always important.
“There are good days, there are bad days, but I think putting your self-care as a priority is hugely important — vulnerability is not a weakness, showing vulnerability in today’s world especially, is a strength,” the royal prince went on.
Prince Harry, Meghan encouraged everyone
Before talking about their struggles again, the couple encourages everyone to let out their feelings. Although the potential is always there, speaking up about what one thinks and feels is essential.
In the end, Meghan pointed out that saying mental health already offers a negative impression. Instead of calling it that way, she suggested referring to it as health.
Currently, they isolated themselves from the media scrutiny they have been receiving when they were still senior royals.
Right now, their main goal is to safeguard their child, Archie, and promote mental health even more amid the pandemic.
