Thank you Kendall for having the courage to share your story! It was an honor to have this important conversation with you. I hope the tips we shared help others who may be struggling with anxiety too.

SUMMATION: Good looks do not heal you.
Amhiel Del Rosario
Amhiel Del Rosario:
As a psychology student, this kind of conversation makes me happy. Seeing people in the big industry talk about mental health is one of the best ways to show to people that mental illness is true and not just an imagination.
She’s already had like 5 obsessed stalkers try and break into her house. I couldn’t sleep at night
Sophia Little
Sophia Little:
i love how honest she is and knows how privileged and blessed she is
Roxy Reyes
Roxy Reyes:
Anxiety being a magnifying glass to only negative things is so true.
Rhianna Reynolds
Rhianna Reynolds:
To everyone asking what can Kendall Jenner be anxious about, here are few things I’d be anxious about if I was in her position! :
1 being famous and everyone knowing me and coming up to me and talking to me
2 what I look like constantly
3 flying all around the world
4 stalkers
5 my private information becoming public knowledge
6 if my friends are actually my friends or people using me
Jordan Reese Tidwell
Jordan Reese Tidwell:
I hate that a lot of people view having anxiety and being shy as being “rude”. My parents don’t understand my anxiety (though they say they do) because multiple times after we have met people my parents have told me that the people probably thought I was rude and stuck up. It’s really does suck.
Grace McCoy
Grace McCoy:
the part of this video that truly sent me was when she asked Dr. Ramani how to handle anxiety over a loved one who isn't being cautious about covid...weren't you the one who had a massive birthday-halloween party during one of the worst time periods for COVID?? and then told everyone not to take any pictures or videos to avoid being called out??
Karina Kaplun
Karina Kaplun:
You can’t control anxiety, ppl with anxiety sometimes can’t really control of how they act especially in public, and that’s why ppl think they are being rude, when in reality they just can’t control it. I’m glad Kendal opened up about it, it makes me feel a little less lonely.
Such an important conversation 💙 We are so honored that MedCircle and Dr. Ramani got to be a part of this

My 17 year old daughter is dealing with this she used to be so cheerful :( ..... I’m trying my best to help her maybe we’ll watch this together today
Polden Odink
Polden Odink:
Goshh I hate anxiety.. I have social anxiety tho.. sometimes I feel like people don’t get what it can do with a person. If you’re reading this whether you have anxiety or not I want you to know that you’re not alone! ❤️
Gaia. Cavalcante
Gaia. Cavalcante:
Ok but why is no one speaking about the part of the loved one who is not being conscious during covid . She said " I feel this” when she literally did a party for Halloween with no masks and no social distance. Make it make sense.
Suzanna Jayne
Suzanna Jayne:
How could she not have anxiety? She’s had a lot thrown at her at an early age. Bless her... I know what she is saying and I think she is helpful to talk about it.
Claire Roberts
Claire Roberts:
Even though she has money and everything she could want doesn't mean she won't have anxiety. She's a human being too. Money doesn't by happiness she could truly be struggling!
Najsierra Colvin
Najsierra Colvin:
just talking about anxiety makes me feel even more anxious and it sucks
Jean Salazar
Jean Salazar:
Is anyone counting how many times Kendall says "right..." or "hmm." On the other hand, I do love & admire she's actually trying to raise awareness for mental health
44 NK
44 NK:
Kendal doesn’t need to respond to every word, she can just listen.
Roxy Reyes
Roxy Reyes:
I hope she is able to overcome her anxiety its hard to deal with it celebrity or not.
Ola Rami
Ola Rami:
That really proves that she's really just like all of us, but only with a more famous life.
Rachael Shay
Rachael Shay:
When she talked about getting used to the solitary lifestyle in quarantine and alot of the expectations were gone; Then following that with saying going back into social situations now gives her anxiety I felt that immensely. I've been experiencing that myself lately and it's truly frustrating
Jane Denton Gaming
Jane Denton Gaming:
I really like Dr. Ramani's videos she's so clear, concise and relatable.
Kimberley Ferreira
Kimberley Ferreira:
The short of breath, feeling like people staring at you. Oh that sounds so familiar. It's terrifying.
Grace Slip
Grace Slip:
YouTube getting real comfortable with these no skip adds
Sham Persaud
Sham Persaud:
What is important about Kendall is that she is able to understand and express her feelings and that is also helpful to speed up healing . A problem shared, is a problem halfway to healing.
I find it difficult that’s she putting so much emphasis on “real” anxiety. And how people are using the term lightly. Sometimes people who are casually dropping the term “anxiety” are actually going through a lot but don’t feel comfortable enough having a serious conversation about it and exposing themselves too much. So they kind a of joke about it. Never judge a person on what you think they are going through, because you just don’t know. I found the Doctors POV very helpful though.
Ritrisha Mondal
Ritrisha Mondal:
It's great how they are talking about this here. For people like us who can't afford therapy it's really useful because knowing more about these things helps a lot.
Bárbara Montserrat Morales Campero
Bárbara Montserrat Morales Campero:
I'm glad Vogue is raising awareness on anxiety but I wish they could go a little bit deeper. Because anxiety has a lot to do with a low self-esteem and the need to be liked by everyone. Competitive and narcissist people also feel anxious when they feel they'll show weakness or imperfection. So, anxiety can be the consequence of a much more complex disorder or problem to solve. It's hard to get over anxiety if you haven't worked on your ego. It takes effort to admit that our mindset can be based on toxic principles.

Never had a normal childhood, constantly being filmed since early age. Thank you Mom.

I'm a psychology student and watched with a smile on my face. I should to say that thank you Kendall for really encouraging people and for pointing out how important is this
A great tip is to look upwards! Also straighten your back and shoulders wide.
When we feel anxious we tend to lower our head and tighten our shoulders kinda curl up a bit which does not help. So keep ur body open not closed and keep ur head up, literally.
And I promise that’s gone help you a little bit =)
Jennifer Adesina
Jennifer Adesina:
"I feel this" you literally had parties during the lockdown
Ughh I love Dr Ramani , she has impacted my life in many ways already !!🤘🏾🤘🏾
i just love the way she's so open about her anxiety... this actually calmed my panic attack down and im just very thankful Kendall is so honest and open about this.. thank u ♡
Brooke Rogers
Brooke Rogers:
It helps a little for me to know that someone of Kendall’s status, is the same as mine, or anyone else’s for that matter. Thank you Kendall for sharing your time and experiences with us!
Anxiety is such a real thing. It interferes so much with my day. This was great to listen to.
Amira oubaiche
Amira oubaiche:
I have social anxiety and just closed my self for like 5 months , and tomorrow I have a very important presentation where I have to talk in front of many persons ! This helped me alots , it's like the universe send it to me ❤
Samuel Hockey
Samuel Hockey:
This is incredibly brilliant! I would love to have Kendal come on my mental health podcast if she would be open to it.
Joana Vassalo
Joana Vassalo:
Great video. Kendall have always been opened about her anxiety but i didn't know how much she struggled with it.
K. G. M.
K. G. M.:
Thanks to Kendall for being open and vulnerable! This is the side of her I'm glad she's showing to the world. Dr. Ramani is beyond brilliant. She has a gift very few have.
Beatrice C
Beatrice C:
thank you so much, I finally feel like I'm not alone and that someone really understands what it feels like living with anxiety
Proud of you Kendall
Oh Jesus. I love self-awareness. As I say in my videos, being self-aware is always the beginning of a magical journey of delving into a deeper discovery of yourself and your connection to others and the world.
Thank you for this beautiful message.

"I don't like the pity party."
As a fellow anxious scorpio, I highly connect to that.
orion brooke
orion brooke:
using the term loosely while saying you’re feeling anxious is valid. anxiety is a natural human reaction to adrenaline. anxiety DISORDER or PANIC disorder is a whole other level.
Lichee wooo
Lichee wooo:
I have anxiety AND i couldn't even talk about anything personal even with my "close friends" i just have the fear of them not wanting to listem to my stories and stuff.i still suffer it to this day.i want to try and be more open with my close friends
Sarah S
Sarah S:
Anxiety has nothing to do with her privilege. She goes through human pain no matter what’s in her purse. I swear anxiety is worse than physical pain. I’m sad she feels this, and you know fame is probably most of the cause.
Joti Maan
Joti Maan:
She’s a smart girl and very aware of herself.
it makes me so glad that kendall is bringing attention to this. this can help so many people, as it has helped me. hopefully this will spark more conversations surrounding this topic for a wider audience. thank you kendall, Dr. Ramani, and vogue.
She had a huge birthday party during covid and says she's been super isolated... sure
Amna G
Amna G:
@vogue, thank you so much for this, I have never related to anything more and this video really answered questions I've wondered about since I was a child. I am so proud of Kendall opening up to this because so many people can relate to this and I hope she knows she is not alone. And I am like her and can never put my thoughts into words but this video was everything I needed. <33333333
Carol Tanner
Carol Tanner:
That’s so true . When u suffering with anxiety you have to have ppl around you with Happy conversation
Madeline Annabella
Madeline Annabella:
I completely understand having anxiety but what I don't understand is people who belittle others and laugh about it
She comes off so vapid. I don't think she's ever said a single genuinely funny thing in her life.
Colin Admiraal
Colin Admiraal:
love kendall and really happy to see her open up about her mental health situations. anxiety sucks but whatever doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Thankyou KJ. peace

Love how you said the nice things about anxiety! We don't hear that enough. Looking at my own anxiety that way helps me find a way to embrace it so I can live a balanced live with it :) Daily training my body and mind to interact better through using both to influence the other is the other key I found :)
Michelle M
Michelle M:
I could watch many hours of this, it's so helpful to hear that others get it and to hear all the analogies and tips, etc.

Everything Kendall shared is me😭😭😭
Glad to know I’m not alone.

Bianca Arendse
Bianca Arendse:
It must be scary having anxiety and being a celeb. You're scared that people are watching and judging you.. When in fact, they actually are.. So it's not just in your head
Thx you for "normalizing"/opening up the conversation/admitting of social anxiety so those dealing with it (like me) don't feel like a weirdo or alone in it.

bella dı manno:
I really relate to the magnifying glass note; I literally thought I had sepsis, a stone in my mouth, lymph node cancer, damaged vocal cords when it was only jaw pain lmao
Gillian Dsouza
Gillian Dsouza:
I really like it when people of a celebrity status comes out cause we always believe people of success are perfect but coming out with mental health issues shows u can b a success inspite of mental health issues.
Sara Brown
Sara Brown:
Dr. Ramani, I love how down to earth and real you are in any situation. This is a great snippet and a very informative video!
Alexandria Thomas
Alexandria Thomas:
as a person who has had anxiety their whole life i really do understand what shes going through just because she doesn't talk or do much doesn't mean she is trying to come off as "rude" she is just scared of being judged can anybody with anxiety agree on this
Angel Lee
Angel Lee:
Mad props to Kendall for doing this, thank you!! Also I loveeee Doctor Ramani, such an awesome lady.
Maribel Garcia

This conversation help me to understand that I’m not the only one with anxiety 😥 I have been struggling with this since 2014 😔 this has affected my life so much. Kendall I hope you get better!
Mavis Carlos
Mavis Carlos:
I’m so happy that Vogue really opens up or talk about this topic that PEOPLE RARELY TALK ABOUT. I’m so happy. Really happy. That VOGUE made episodes about this. Thank you Vogue. Also the last part that doctors give some advice and Tips for some people who are experiencing it
Kendall is so NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL!!! She reminds of the 1970s of Natural and Pure Ivory commercials

"anxiety is like a magnifying glass and it magnifies only the bad things"
wow what a quote
Mona Stea
Mona Stea:
So happy that this conversation is taking place. Love this Doctor. I can relate to every single symptom explained in this video. I feel overwhelmed when I interact with more than what i’m use to during the pandemic. I thought I was the only one.
Love her for this ❤️🥺 she’s so brave for speaking on her mental health
I love dr. Ramani. For Kendall I think it's deeply problematic that she launched a tequila line only days after this big interview when alcohol is the number one self medication for anxiety that makes things infinitely worse.
Tanya G
Tanya G:
I "love" Dr. Ramani her channel is amazing(dealing w/Narcissists) so I'm glad this was done w/her. I'm not a fan of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, but I respect Kendall for putting herself out there like she did. Anxiety of any sort is hard to talk about/deal with/control. Thank you to all involved for making this video.
to everyone saying she doesn't have the right to have anxiety and therefore empathy because of her background; anxiety is not exclusive to the under-privileged.
Bryn Roby
Bryn Roby:
im so happy that someone that is famous and a huge role model to so many is speaking out about anxiety, its honestly a relief.
Nena Linda
Nena Linda:
Did Kris Jenner not put these girls in therapy while they were developing? All those resources but it seems like this is Kendal’s first time being validated in her experiences. Interesting...
In conclusion Kendall only feels anxiety when she has to deal with the "commoners", because when she made a birthday party in the middle of the pandemic with celebrities she did not feel anxiety. And also only acts rude to "commoners" and celebrities as gods.
Priyodarshini Banerjee
Priyodarshini Banerjee:
For the first time in my life, I can relate to Kendall Jenner.
Hi Lol

Kendall’s my favorite honestly. She always stuck to being herself ❤️
Hats off to Kendall for having the courage to represent all of us who struggle with social anxiety...
The ‘introverts’ of the world thank you...❤️
Julia Kruse

Can’t I make the case that all of these physical symptoms are a direct result of having Kris Jenner for a mom?

Thank you so much for coming up with this issue... People always confuse the term depression with the anxiety... I have always suffered this kind of anxiety attack throughout my life... Never understood that it was anxiety... Always confused with depression... This vdo has opened my eyes... Lots of good wishes Kendall... You are such a strong soul with good heart...
Kendall is so genuine. I love this. Thank you for sharing your journey with us Kendall. ✨
Its good to see her show this side of her. Very smart girl.
Love that Kendall is brave enough to open up about this!!!!!
i just love it when celebrities use their massive influence to reinforce awareness and to educate others 💛

Thank you Kendall for speaking out and opening up about anxiety. Because I have gone through this. Especially the rushing to the hospital part and my family think i was crazy.

I have social anxiety as well. It took me years to understand. Others still think Im weird and shy but it's so much more than that.
Thank you Kendall ❣️

Having anxiety attack is not a joke. There’s a lot of things running in my mind and I sometimes wanted to commit suicide.
divyatejaswini vengada
divyatejaswini vengada:
So if your mind has the capacity to make you sick (physically), then your mind can make you feel better, heal your body. I hope that everybody gets this simple basic thing "Your thoughts control your reality(health, relationships)". If you want to feel good/better, you can. Just deciding that you want to feel good, you are one step ahead in your healing process. When I get anxious about something, the first thing that I repeat to myself is "I trust my future to be good".It is not an overnight process, I repeat the statement whenever I feel anxious over and over again so that my brain switches into this thought whenever I feel anxious. Btw anxious --> fear of future, depression --> still holding on to the past(I repeat "I'm willing to let go of the past that is no longer serving me". Listen to this while you sleep , it literally did a miracle to my subconscious brain and saved my life. I hope you heal ,sending love and light :)
Maika Martinez
Maika Martinez:
it gives me less anxiety when I knew that like a people like Kendall experiencing that same situation that give her anxiety same as mine, and it gives me realizations that "oh she's rich and have all of things , but she's have anxiety" in that realization it helps I'm not the only one whose have anxiety :)
