It's almost weird to think of a time where Kendall Jenner's face wasn't gracing our screens or the latest magazine cover. But that doesn't mean it's always been easy. Unfortunately, it hasn't. The reality star recently opened up about her life in the spotlight - and perhaps it's not as glamorous as it may appear...

For starters, Kenny's struggle with anxiety goes back years - long before her reality called for jet-setting across the globe. "I have struggled with anxiety and panic attacks since I was a little girl," the model revealed on May 6. But while she may be able to recognize the symptoms now, it wasn't always that way.

"I remember being really young – I’d say eight, nine, ten – and having shortness of breath and going to my mom and telling her that," Jenner explained on Vogue's new series, Open Minded. But as the reality star put it, her time on Keeping Up With the Kardashians might just be to blame...

"I think being overworked and being in the situation that I’m in now is kind of what set it out of control in a way," Jenner confessed of her family's time on our screens. Sure enough, 20 seasons later, and their on-screen journey is finally coming to an end. And while KUWTK may have brought a wave of anxiety, there's one thing Kenny wants us to know...

After decades on our screen, the KUWTK star has got nothing but appreciation for her time in Hollywood. "I’ll never sit here and say that I’m not fortunate," the star assured. "I know I live a very privileged, amazing lifestyle. I’m a very blessed girl."

As for where Kenny goes from here? With pandemic regulations continuing to loosen, we've got a feeling we'll be seeing a whole lot more of her. And we can't wait to see where her next chapter takes her.
