Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shares his powerful testimony of overcoming his bout with depression and the career-defining moment that came out of it on an upcoming episode on “Oprah’s Master Class.”
After playing football for four years at the University of Miami, The Rock was bypassed by the NFL. He was scooped by the Calgary Stampeders, but a short time later, he was cut from the team.
At 23, Dwayne returned home to his parent’s small apartment, feeling defeated, and battling depression.
In a post on his IG, The Rock wrote:
When asked by Oprah what the key elements were for me getting thru my multiple bouts with depression, I told her the only anchor I was able to hold onto during those hard times was faith. Look forward to sharing more life lessons with you guys this SUNDAY at 8pm on #MasterClass #OwnNetwork #WeveAllBeenDown #AndDeserveToGetBackUp ??
