Ellie Goulding is opening up about her battle with anxiety.

Over the weekend, Goulding and her mother detailed her struggle with the feeling of dread and described the uneasiness Goulding experiences in an emotional Instagram post.

“This past year has been the very best of my life,” she wrote. “But this year has also been the hardest of my life.”

In December, the singer, who performed for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and gave birth to Artur, her son, in 2021, said she’d had many unforgettable moments in 2021. Still, anxiety has also played a significant role in her life.

“I’ve struggled daily, nightly, hourly, with a kind of panic I didn’t even know existed,” Goulding wrote. “While the moments of being on stage in front of all of you have been some of the most exhilarating and calming, this year, I have been struggling.”

“If I was to really think about it, my anxiety has dictated quite a lot of my life and career, and I feel sad about that,” she added. “But it has also made me who I am, and sometimes at my most terrified, when I feel there is no escape from the sheer panic and dread in my heart and brain, I remind myself that I can feel. I feel so much, and that is how I have got to this place in my life.”

As 2021 ended, Ellie said she wanted to share her experience with her fans and explained why she did not answer too many of them when they asked her how she was doing over social media. She went on to say that she has been “scared to admit” that she has not been feeling well.

“I feel like something is broken inside – something that has been echoed deeply by the few I have opened up to,” she said. “This is something so so many people have gone through, you may be going through right now, or might go through in the future – and I just wanted to say, and I have to remind myself all the time, that it’s not just you, it’s not just me. Crippled by anxiety.”

After sharing her story, Ellie hopes that others who are feeling or going through the same problems get the courage to talk about their feelings.

“Talking and opening up is the hardest and the best thing you can do,” Goulding said. “Life is a precious thing, and seeing Arthur grow every day gives me so much hope. I have so much love and energy for anyone going through this.”

“Let’s get through this together,” she added. “2022 is going to be a bright year. Positive energy. Together.”
