English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding recently opened up about struggling with chronic anxiety that slowed down her career. In the early 2010s, Goulding was a worldwide sensation, and most of her songs dominated the top charts. However, over the years, the singer has not been as active as she once was, mainly due to acute anxiety that makes her feel numb. She has revealed that music has helped her a lot in getting through tough situations. The singer prioritizes her mental health over everything in her life. The 34-year-old pop star welcomed her first child, a boy named Arthur Ever Winter, with husband Caspar Jopling back in April 2021.

In December 3rd’s issue of Stellar Magazine, singer Ellie Goulding opened up about her struggles with chronic anxiety that leaves her feeling “numb” and the rare moments of joy when she is not feeling panicked. She said,

“I get such chronic anxiety that in the rare moments I don’t have anxiety, I feel so happy and full of joy that I’m not having it. If I am in an anxious state, I don’t feel things. I numb myself to everything.”
