#Going to therapy for seven hours a week has given #Chris #Rock a greater understanding of himself.
#After revealing this fall that he sees two therapists to deal with a non-verbal learning disorder — as well as painful childhood bullying as the only black student at an all-white school — the comedian is now opening up about the benefits he sees.
“You have to tell the truth,” #Rock, 55, tells #Gayle #King, 66, on this weekend’s “CBS #Sunday #Morning” (via #People). “You have to tell – you have to go into therapy prepared to tell the worst part of yourself every week, you know?”
The “Top #Five” star also learned that I could be very hard on myself.”
“Like really, really hard on myself, and I need to relax. #And I need to listen, I need to take chances,” he told #King.
#Prior to his diagnosis of NVLD — which makes it hard for #Rock to pick up on non-verbal signs — the funnyman assumed his fame was the main barrier keeping him from truly bonding with others.
“And I’d always just chalked it up to being famous,” he said in #September. “Any time someone would respond to me in a negative way, I’d think, ‘Whatever, they’re responding to something that has to do with who they think I am.’ #Now, I’m realizing it was me. A lot of it was me.”
