“A lot of the last few years has been about focusing on mental health for me, and it’s a slow process. But because of that work, I feel very grounded and rooted in who I am and very clear about everything in my life, whether it’s my career or my relationships or my own internal worth,” she continued. “I feel very grateful to have walked that line of fire, because now I know what I don’t want to ever go back to.” “Now I’m on the other side of it, thank God. A lot of the last few years has been about focusing on mental health for me, and it’s a slow process,” Woodley said.
“It spun me out for a while. You feel so incredibly isolated and alone. Unless someone can see that you have a broken arm or a broken leg, it’s really difficult for people to relate to the pain that you’re experiencing when it’s a silent, quiet and invisible pain.” In an interview withThe New York Timesin April 2020, Shailene revealed that her health struggle has lasted terrifyingly long. “I haven’t spoken much about this yet publicly, and I will one day, but I was very, very sick in my early 20s. While I was doing theDivergentmovies and working hard, I also was struggling with a deeply personal, very scary physical situation.”
“I haven’t spoken much about this yet publicly, and I will one day, but I was very, very sick in my early 20s. While I was doing the ‘Divergent’ movies and working hard, I also was struggling with a deeply personal, very scary physical situation,” Woodley said. Shailene implied that her condition wasn’t physically visible, which was part of the struggle because people couldn’t outwardly tell she was suffering. “Unless someone can see that you have a broken arm or a broken leg, it’s really difficult for people to relate to the pain that you’re experiencing when it’s a silent, quiet, and invisible pain,” she said. “I’m on the tail end of it, which is very exciting, but it’s an interesting thing, going through something so physically dominating while also having so many people pay attention to the choices you make, the things you say, what you do, what you look like. It spun me out for a while,” she added. She said the unnamed health condition made her turn down work, saying not to a lot of projects because she physically could not participate in them.
“Because of that, I said no to a lot of opportunities because I needed to get better, and those jobs ended up going to peers of mine who I love,” she added. Big Little Lies actress Shailene Woodley has talked about a health scare that almost finished her career in her early 20s. “And I definitely suffered a lot more than I had to because I didn’t take care of myself,” she said. Shailene channel marketing manager asus fremont Woodley has revealed details of a “debilitating” illness. Woodley says that she and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers publicly announced their engagement in February only so they wouldn’t be beaten to it by someone else. “When we announced that we were engaged, we wanted to do that only because we didn’t want someone else to do it before we did,” she explains.

Odds are Woodley will continue to enjoy some quality time with Rodgers, all the while taking care of herself — something she does by prioritizing sleep, practicing more positive self-talk, and using astrology to help encourage “more self-compassion.” “I was by myself with my dog and didn’t see anyone for three months,” she said of her living situation prior to Rodgers. Though Woodley continued to work, she worried whether she would ever be in a place again where her health wouldn’t affect the projects she was able to take on.
