Kim Kardashian on Kanye’s disorder
Kim Kardashian West wrote in lengthy Instagram stories that she had been reluctant to speak publicly about how her husband’s illness had affected his family “because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy.
“But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health,” said Kim.
She mentioned that, “Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor.”
“People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
Kim said that she understood that Kanye’s words were subject to criticism and would lead to “strong opinions and emotions.” But she added that Kanye is a “brilliant and complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother … has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.
“Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.”
She summed up saying that even the disorder couldn’t stop Kanye from achieving his big dreams.
“We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it,” said Kim Kardashian West.
“I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this,” she concluded.
