How Lady Gaga Overcame Depression and Won an Oscar - Success Story of Lady Gaga
This is the motivational success story of Lady Gaga. Her Journey from chronic pain, depression and anxiety to an Oscar for A star is born.
Lady Gaga didn't have an easy childhood. At school she was bullied for her eccentric look. She was called a slut and was not accepted by her classmates.
When she was a teenager, she was sexually assaulted. I was raped when I was 16 years old. It took me 7 years — and being assaulted a second time — to admit to anyone that something happened to me. Had I known that people were talking about rape, and doing something about it, maybe I would have told someone sooner. At the very least, I would have felt less alone.
After the sexual assault, lady gaga says that she has been changed forever
Lady Gaga rose from the ashes of her pain, bullying, rape, rejections, depression, and culminated with her standing on stage and accepting an Oscar for her work in A Star Is Born. This is her acceptance speech:
"Depression doesn't take away your talents—it just makes them harder to find. But I always find it. I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that's left. I'm lucky I found one little glimmer stored away."
