Idris Elba is going to therapy to assist him stop a “unhealthy habit” that has been weighing on his life. The British actor, who is 51 years old, talked about therapy on the “Changes with Annie Macmanus” show. He went to therapy around this time last year.
“It’s a lot,” he replied. “In therapy, I’ve been thinking a lot regarding changing, almost to the stage where naturopaths are changed and shifting.” “It’s not that I don’t like myself or anything such as that; it’s just that I’ve gotten into some bad habits. And I am employed in a field that pays me for having these bad habits.”
“A lot of what I talk about in therapy is how I want to change,” he said. “It’s not that I don’t like myself or anything like that. I just have some bad habits that I’ve been doing for a long time.”
I Am Employed In A Field That Pays Me For Having These Bad Habits:
Elba also said, “I work in a profession that pays me for these bad habits.” “I love to work. I have to work all the time. In general, that isn’t good for life. Nothing that goes too far is a good thing. Everything needs to be in harmony.”
The actor who was nominated for an Emmy said that his job is good for “someone who can say, ‘I’m not going out with my relatives for six months.'” And I’m in there working hard, building a new family, and then abandoning them.”
“Nothing that’s too extreme is okay; everything needs balance,” he said. “But I’m rewarded a lot for being a workaholic as opposed to someone who’s like, ‘Eh, I’m going to miss my family for six months,’ and I’m within grinding as well as making a new family as well as leaving them.”
“Those are paths where I had to say, ‘I have to change.'” “So, I’ve been thinking regarding this a lot, as well as oddly enough, a lot of our childhood actually lies at the root of it,” the London-born star said.

And that makes me happy and calm at the same time.”

He has also worked upon the other side of the camera, directing his debut full-length film, “Yardie,” and making the TV show “In the Long Run” in 2018. “My studio occupies my home, and I love being here so much.
I’ll open my computer and say, “I have no idea what to make today,” and it’ll turn out this way or that way. “That makes me happy and calm at the same time,” he said.
“I could work on a movie for 10 days, including underwater scenes where I had to hold my breath for six minutes, and then I’d rather stay in than hang out with my family on the couch, which is bad, right? It’s the part where I have to figure out what makes me calm; I can’t just work all the time,” he said.
