Savannah Chrisley struggles with the 'pressure to be perfect'
In an interview with People in July 2020, Savannah Chrisley spoke candidly about the untold truth of filming Chrisley Knows Best. “Growing up on TV, a lot of people think oh that’s amazing but for me I know there was a lot of pressure to be perfect and to know that mothers are allowing their daughters to follow me on social media and look up to me,” she said. “I’ve put a lot of pressure on myself in order to live this perfect life and not disappoint people.”
Chrisley also revealed that therapy has been an integral part of overcoming her anxiety. “Right now, I’m at a place where I want to live my life for myself and not be so fixated on what people think. Opinions hurt. I see them and sometimes they hit close to home. You have to have that healthy balance, and for me I am a huge advocate for therapy. I think it takes a lot of strength to go and talk to someone, and that’s been my saving grace throughout this whole thing.” She said that her reality TV lifestyle “has had it’s pros and cons, but overall it’s given us a platform to help others and meet a lot of people. I don’t think we can complain too much.”
Best wishes to Savannah for a smooth surgery and speedy recovery! Something tells us papa bear Todd Chrisley will be there to take care of her every step of the way!
