London: Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik says he no longer has anxiety issues -- something that he mainly dealt with when he was part of the boyband.
Malik had earlier spoken about struggling with an eating disorder, but now feels he is more composed, reports eonline.com.
"I now have no problem with anxiety. It was something I was dealing with in the band," Malik told The Sunday Times Style magazine.
"People saw strength in that, and they didn't seem to expect it from a guy, but they expect it from a female, which to me is crazy. We're all human. People are often afraid to admit difficulties, but I don't believe that there should be a struggle with anything that's the truth," he added.
