Bella Hadid is getting down to business.
The model is well recognized for her appearances on magazine covers, but she has recently been using her platform to discuss issues that she is passionate about. That has previously been linked to her advocacy and Palestinian roots. She’s now opening out about her mental health struggles to her admirers.
On Tuesday, the 25-year-old shared a video of Willow Smith, claiming it «made me feel a little less alone» and encouraged her to talk about her own fear. In the video, the host of Red Table Talk speculated that insecurity may be «learned.» She stated, »
“All humans are different, every single human has something so special and unique to offer. And people forget that everyone is basically feeling the same way: lost, confused, not really sure why they’re here. That anxiety, like, everyone is feeling that and trying to cover it up in some way. We’re gonna come together in our flaws. In our insecurities, in our joy, in our happiness, and accept it all as beautiful and natural.”
Gigi Hadid’s sister tweeted multiple tearful selfies alongside the video of Willow, stating that the images were «very much my every day, every night… “It’s been a few years now.” She expressed herself as follows:
“Social media is not real. For anyone struggling, please remember that. Sometimes all you’ve gotta hear is that you’re not alone. So from me to you, you’re not alone. I love you, I see you, and I hear you. Self help and mental illness/chemical imbalance is not linear and it is almost like a flowing rollercoaster of obstacles… it has its ups and downs , and side to sides.”
The caption continued:
“But I want you to know, there is always light at the end of the tunnel , and the rollercoaster always comes to a complete stop at some point. (There is always room for it to start up again, but for me it’s always been nice to know that even if it’s a few days, weeks, or months, it does get better, to some extent, even for a moment. )”
The runway star concluded:
“it took me a long time to get that in my mind , but I’ve had enough breakdowns and burnouts to know this: if you work hard enough on yourself, spending time alone to understand your traumas , triggers, joys, and routine, you will always be able to understand or learn more about your own pain and how to handle it. Which is all that you can ask of yourself. Anyways. Not sure why but it feels harder and harder to not share my truth on here. Thank you for seeing me and thank you for listening. I love you”
Wow. Powerful stuff.
Friends and fans alike supported her vulnerable message, with commenters including big sis Gigi (“I love you!”) and Willow herself, who wrote:
“Your honesty and tenderness heals so many » width=»16″ height=»16″ data-src=»https://overviewnews.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/echo/2764.png» />“
What a powerful statement, especially coming from a celebrity whose image has been meticulously managed. It’s always wonderful to be reminded that we’re all dealing with the same issues. We hope that Bella’s fans pay attention to this message and take care of themselves and their mental health.
