‘One of the hardest years of my life’ – Flight attendant star Kaley Cuoco opens up about seeking support


Do you tend to withdraw into a shell when you’re having a hard time emotionally? You’re not alone.

In a heartfelt interview with Variety, HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant star Kaley Cuoco revealed how she found the strength to ask for help as she struggled through her divorce – which the American actor, 36, said it was “one the hardest years of my life”.

“It was my first time starting therapy — I’ve been very open about it,” Cuoco said. “I started at the beginning of season two because I went through so much just before we started shooting. it was horrible go away I literally had fire in my leg for three months. I could hardly walk.

Explaining that finding support and moving in together with her co-star Zosia Mamet helped ease some of the pressure, Cuoco shared, “I really needed someone with me. I really lost my mind. She had an Airbnb and it only lasted so long. And I thought, ‘Why don’t you just move in with me?’ It was the loneliest thing I’ve ever felt, and I’m not really someone who shares that.”

The Big Bang Theory star’s words probably ring true for a lot of people — especially if you’re someone who usually has a hard time sharing when you’re going through a tough time.

If that’s the case, how can you be more comfortable with this move?

Ask for help with small things

dr Claire Vowell, Clinical Lead at Limbic (limbic.ai), believes that being able to ask for help is a process — and you can build on it. If the idea of ​​asking for support feels like a daunting leap, think about it, one small step at a time.

“Practice asking for support in smaller ways—it gets easier over time,” says Vowell. “It’s often easier to frame the topic as a conversation rather than directly asking for support. For example, say to a friend, ‘Can we talk about xyz’ instead of saying, ‘I need your help with xyz’. Sometimes simply telling a friend you’re having a difficult time can be a good way to start the conversation.”

Ask why it’s hard for you to say you’re having problems

If you find it difficult to ask for support from those around you, or just to admit you’re having a little trouble, there may well be a reason.

It could be really helpful to get curious about it and ultimately become aware of what’s going on for you.

“Try to become aware of your own beliefs about asking for help. If you’re having a hard time asking for support, you probably have a set of beliefs standing in your way,” says Vowell.

“For example, were you told that asking for help was weak growing up? Or maybe you think other people will always let you down. Once you are aware of your limiting beliefs, you can work on trying to challenge and reframe them.”

Choose your person and your timing

It’s okay to have boundaries and be selective about who you share what with and when. So, thinking about who you’d like to open up to will help you take that step.

“Choose the best person to ask, make sure it’s someone you trust and feel comfortable with. Then think about when the best time to ask the question is, for example, you don’t want to catch them when they’re particularly busy or stressed,” Vowell suggests.

If a friend is also going through a tough time, maybe check if they have the emotional resources to support you right now – we’re all human, after all. It’s not about taking on the role of a therapist, it’s just about sharing and being there for one another. Being more open can actually bring you closer together.
