The Rock, as he is also known, took part in The Pivot podcast where he talked about the depression he experienced a few years back, also revealing that he has had three episodes where he has felt depressed, The first was when he went to college in Miami.
“I didn’t want to go to school. I was ready to go. I quit school. I didn’t take a partial exam and I quit. But the interesting thing is that at the time I didn’t know what it was. I didn’t know I didn’t know what mental health was. I didn’t know what depression was. All I knew was that I didn’t want to be there, that I wasn’t going to any team meetings, that I wasn’t going to participate in anything. Wasn’t taking it.”

Dwayne Johnson commented that in 2017 he felt depressed again and luckily he already knew he had depression, and his friends supported him.
Years later, around 2017, I went through a bit more. I knew what it was like at the time, and luckily, I had some friends at the time that I could lean on and say, ‘You know, I’m a little wobbly. I have a little fight going on. I’m not seeing a little gray and blue.'”
In the end, the actor sent a message for all those people who are going through depression.
“As men, we didn’t talk about it. We put our heads down and got over it. It wasn’t healthy, but it was the only way we knew how to do it. version turning into hell, the most important thing you can do is talk to someone. If you keep that pain inside it can’t be healed. Courage to talk to someone Patience is your superpower. I lost two friends to suicide. Talk to someone. No matter how you feel, you are never alone.
