Chrissy Teigen’s Therapist Advises Social Media Detox: ‘Despite My Tough Exterior, I’m an Empath Who Absorbs Others’ Pain’

Chrissy Teigen is one of the most outspoken celebrities on social media who is not afraid to back down from a fight, even when it involves the president of the United States.

But underneath that grit is a soft soul, she told Marie Claire’s Fall 2020 issue, which goes on newsstands September 10. That is why she has started therapy and is taking a break from social media.

‘People think I’m tough, but I’m such an empath, and I take on other people’s pain and sadness as my own. And when I let people down, I’m hyperaware of it,’ said the beauty who is pregnant with her third child. ‘Sometimes I feel like people aren’t going to be as hard on me as I am on myself.’

That is why she has hit the pause ʙuттon on social media.

‘I’m barely online anymore, and that was at the request of my therapist,’ says Teigen, who has over 43 million collective followers across Twitter and Instagram.
