The Transformation Of Kaia Gerber From Childhood To 20

It’s not everyday that we get such candid conversation from celebrities about topics like codependence, but Kaia Gerber has been rather open about the topic. The model spoke with Lena Dunham in a 2022 Instagram Live session about how she realized she was letting other people have power over her well-being.

“One of my favorite self-help books is ‘Codependent No More,’” Gerber told Dunham, according to Us Weekly. “Even if you’re not technically codependent, just not allowing your happiness to rely on someone else’s I think is a huge thing. Because I was like, ‘I’m so independent. I’m good,’ and I was reading that book and I was like, ‘Nope, I am absolutely codependent.’” Gerber joked that Cindy Crawford would often offer advice during her childhood gleaned from self-help books and Gerber dismissed it until one day she saw the merit in speaking truthfully and standing her ground.

Learning to speak about negative things was also a lesson for Gerber. “I’m a trusting person,” she told Vogue in May 2021. “There were moments I’d be going through a hard time, and people would ask me how I was, and I’d say, ‘Oh, I’m good.’ Now it’s more, like, maybe the person I’m talking to is also having a bad day, and we can talk about it. If we close ourselves off, a lot of things get buried.” So Gerber’s message is all about opening up and sharing what’s really going on, rather than what’s easy or comfortable. Sounds like a great example of vulnerability.
