Gisele Bündchen has lived a life full of luxuries and glamor that has raised envy for decades.

This has been announced by the mannequin himself, who has published a memoir, ‘Lessons: my way to a meaningful life’, in which she explained that she has even thought of suicide as an escape route to his problems.

Suffered strong anxiety attacks

The anxiety caused by the high rate of work produced strong panic attacks. In fact, this led to a phobia of closed sites such as tunnels or elevators: “I felt powerless. Your world becomes smaller and smaller and you can not breathe. It’s the worst feeling I’ve had. ”

However, what they predicted nothing had to do with reality, Gisele end up occupying dozens of covers. In 1997she achieved international fame when she paraded topless for Alexander McQueen. Three years later, she signed a contract of 25 million with Victoria’s Secret and began a relationship with one of the most desired actors of the time, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Suicide as an escape route

So bad was with so much anxiety and irrational panic that she even considered suicide as an option to rest: “I started thinking if I jump from my balcony this will end and I will never have to worry about the feeling that the world It comes over me, “he confesses in his memoir.

Panic and anxiety attacks

Everything happened at such a speed that it ended up producing anxiety and panic attacks. The first one suffered in 2003, after having a bad experience aboard an airplane in which more violent turbulence occurred than usual.

Bündchen thought about taking his own life: “If I jump from my balcony ”

The trip left sequels. The model remembered how she felt: “I was going through a wonderful moment in my career, I was as close as ever to my family and, in my case, I had always considered myself a positive person. I could not understand why I felt this way, I had the impression that I had no right to feel bad, and I was very hard on myself. I had no strength, it made me tiny and I could not breathe. It’s the worst feeling you could experience. ”

The Brazilian model, aged 38, has published her biography: ‘Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life’ (Lessons: my journey to a life with meaning), in which she reviews her career, which has led her to be one of the best-paid models in the world, but also has revealed its lights and shadows of his life, hitherto unknown, such as the suicidal thoughts she had during a time.

Things may look perfect on the outside, but you have no idea what is really going on. I think it’s time to share some of the things that make me vulnerable and explain why I would not change any of the experiences I’ve had. ”

The model was born in Horizontina (Brazil) in 1980, grew up with her five sisters, one of them, her twin, and at age 14 was discovered by a model agent in Sao Paulo, in a shopping center. “They told me that my nose was too big and my eyes too small and that it would never be on the cover of a magazine,” she recalled.

However, what they predicted nothing had to do with reality, Gisele end up occupying dozens of covers. In 1997she achieved international fame when she paraded topless for Alexander McQueen. Three years later, she signed a contract of 25 million with Victoria’s Secret and began a relationship with one of the most desired actors of the time, Leonardo DiCaprio.

After that, she began to dread the closed spaces, even the elevators or the tunnels. “I felt powerless. Your world becomes smaller and smaller and you can not breathe. It’s the worst feeling I’ve had. ”

It was then that the thought of suicide burst into her head. “I started to think: if I jump from my balcony, this will be over and I will never have to worry about the feeling that the world is coming at me again.”

She does not regret the decision to leave the actor because “everyone who crosses our path is a teacher, they enter our lives to teach us something about ourselves. I learned a lot with him, “he wrote in his biography.
