Meghan Markle opens up about her 'hopes, fears and insecurities' as she slams 'instant gratification' culture
The 38-year-old mother made the comments while visiting the Luminary Bakery which is a London-based project to help disadvantaged women
The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle shared that humans are not "mechanical objects that need to be fixed" as she got candid about her "hopes, fears and insecurities" during an intimate chat.
Meghan Markle spoke about the current culture of "instant gratification" where people are looking for an "instant fix". She also shared that humans should be seen as "wounded creatures that need to be healed".
The mother of one, 38, was visiting the Luminary Bakery which is a London-based project to help disadvantaged women. She shared, "I was talking about this with someone the other day. We get into this habit of wanting things done immediately nowadays."
"There's a culture of instant gratification, of the instant fix. But we aren't mechanical objects that need to be fixed. You're a wounded creature that needs to be healed, and that takes time," she continued. Meghan also spoke to Daily Telegraph and shared that when you "strip all the layers away", people can find a deep connection with each other.
"Our lives may be different, our backgrounds, our experiences, all varied, but I find that in these moments of connection it becomes abundantly clear that our hopes, our fears, our insecurities, the things that make us tick, well, those are very much the same. And there's comfort in that," she revealed.
The Duchess of Sussex also added that she would be watching the rugby World Cup final with baby Archie in England.
