The runway model has been open about her anxiety battle for the past few years and her struggles to shoulder responsibilities from a young age.
On many occasions, Jenner has spoken about her preference for a quiet country life on a farm with several animals over super busy city life. She also shed light on her difficulty making friends as a child and her skepticism when one asked to visit her reality tv show home.

Kendall Jenner Says She Isn’t A Mean Girl
In the October 20 episode of “The Kardashians,” Jenner got candid about how she felt whenever people made specific comments about her and her famous Kardashian-Jenner clan. During a confessional in the reality show, the supermodel revealed that contrary to what most people thought, she was not a “mean girl.”
“Anything I do gets hate. I could be walking down the street doing absolutely nothing, and somebody always has something bad to say.” Jenner further revealed that she was hurt because people constantly made assumptions about her without knowing her.
“I think the one that hurts the most is that people think I’m a mean girl,” the reality star continued per E! News. “‘Cause that’s just not the case. It can be upsetting when someone is questioning your character. And if only people knew me.”
She Finds Crowds Overwhelming
The 818 Tequila founder further revealed that she felt overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas and wanted to be in a “complete opposite” situation. The model described her perfect life as one on “a farm in Wyoming with a ton of animals.” “That’s where I wanna be,” she added.
Jenner also admitted that she had problems knowing who her real friends were because of how famous her family was. The reality star recalled a time in middle school when a number of her friends wanted to come over to be a part of the famous “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” at the time.
She explained, “They just wanted to come over to be on it. So my walls went up then. I also just get uncomfortable; I never want to be like, ‘Hey, do you want to be on my show?’”
Kendall Jenner Felt Lonely As A Child
While talking to ZAZA WORLD RADIO in 2018, Jenner recalled her childhood and admitted that she did not have many friends growing up. “I remember there was a time when I was in middle school, even high school a little bit, I didn’t have that many friends,” she stated.
Jenner explained that her younger sibling, Kylie had several friends, and at some point, she felt like she would never be as popular. The model recalled, “I was sitting in my room a lot of days crying because Kylie had so many friends, and I didn’t know what to do, and it’s gonna make me emotional right now.”
“I really never thought that I would have more friends than Kylie, not that that’s ever a competition or should be anything we’d — I don’t want that to come off weird, but again, she’s so happy with the life she’s living,” she said per People.
Kendall Jenner Shares Her Battle With Anxiety
“The Kardashians” star has been open about her issues with anxiety over the years and revealed how she coped with it in an August interview with Vogue. She also talked about her recurring issue with insomnia and how she had a routine to help her with it.
“I like to wind down in the evenings,” Jenner said. “I have struggled with anxiety for years, and it can have good and bad days. If I need to wind down, I really make a point to take 15 minutes to meditate to settle my anxiety so I can get a good night’s rest.”
The reality star went into detail about her anxiety and its impact on her in a 2018 appearance on Harper’s Bazaar. “I feel like the life I live is extraordinary in a lot of ways but that it also comes with a lot of responsibilities,” Jenner explained. “I’ve had to grow up pretty fast and deal with situations most 22-year-olds aren’t really put into.”
