Ruby Rose's battle with depression

Ruby Rose's battle with depression

Ruby Rose hopes her battle with depression will inspire others to "hang in there".

The 'Orange Is The New Black' star opened up about her struggle with the condition in the hope others will take the negative energy she felt at the time and turn it into something positive.

Talking about an old tweet she had been resent by a fan, she told E! News: "It was a real spinout when I got sent that [post], and it was something I had posted three years ago, you know, when I was really really depressed and I didn't think that I could live another day or want to live another day, let alone live my dream.

"So, my message was really just that, to really reflect on how many people in the world right now feel like they don't want to go on another day, or they can't go on another day, and they're just seconds or minutes or days away from reaching their full potential and blossoming and being free and happy. I just thought that's got to be millions of people and that's just my message. Just hang in there, like one day at a time, and it does get better. I know that's cliché, but it just does."
