Jennifer Aniston Opens Up About Her Years of Therapy: I Needed Help Expressing My Anger.

JENNIFER Aniston has opened up in a candid interview about her struggles with anger, dyslexia and people’s constant obsession over her desire to have a child.Like many movie stars, the actress overcame her learning difficulties and admits she was relieved when she learned of her diagnosis in her early 20s – because she thought she simply “wasn’t smart.” The former “Friends” star tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I went to get a prescription for glasses. Unfortunately, her beloved doctor passed away at not-the-best time. “It was at a crazy time, right when we were going through our divorce and everything,” Aniston shared with the publication when referencing her split from Brad Pitt. “But I learned so much in the four years I worked with her, that when she did pass away I remember thinking, ‘Wow, everything that we talked about and discussed, it’s allowed me to be really peaceful about it all.'” According to the publication, Aniston’s therapist focused on the fundamental issue of self-assertion allowing the Golden Globe nominee not to bottle her anger up in unhealthy ways. “Her whole thing with me was really saying, ‘You have to stand up for yourself in life,'” she disclosed. “She was really trying to help me deal with anger and learning how to express it without feeling terrified that I was going to get murdered in response.” To this day, Aniston also makes meditation a priority in her life to help maintain a healthy mindset.

My eyes would jump four words and go back two words, and I also had a little bit of a lazy eye, like a crossed eye, which they always have to correct in photos.” “I would come out passive, things would come out passively.

You don’t have to be a hysterical human being and have veins popping out of your neck and turn bright red and terrify people — or else keep quiet and put your head in the sand. Which has been something that I’ve really tried to work on.” She’s also tried to master her need for order. “I’m a control freak,” she admits. “I like to be in charge of everything. I mean, at this point it’s starting to become – please, give more credit to these human beings.” As she gets older, Aniston is taking more risks in her career. She took the lead role in , despite naysayers who thought she wasn’t right for the role. “I’ve been told so many times ‘You’re not the type’ that part of me went, ‘Am I not?
