“And if not, you probably know someone who is…something that I have been dealing with for a few years but finally at a point where it doesn’t consume me as much as before. still have bad days along with the good, but grateful and proud of myself to be in the place that I am today, going into my 23rd year of life.

“With that being said, I would like to add that everything you see online or through social media is not always what it seems.”

The happiness we create online while being sad in real life makes no sense, but sometimes it just seems easier to live within your sadness rather than talk about it – Bella hadid

On the importance of self-care:

“Don’t feel pressured by things online…if you don’t want to get out of bed, don’t. If you want to cancel plans, cancel them. Being kind and protective to yourself and your energy is something I’ve learned to be helpful.”

On asking for help:

“When the world feels like it is collapsing around you, you are allowed to ask for help… you do not have to deal with your mental state alone. We need to spread love and allow love in.”

On the power of small acts of kindness:

“You never know how much your words or just a smile can change someone’s day and even yours as well. If you are reading this and feel like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel… there is…and I see you! You are strong, you are good enough and you DESERVE to be happy!!”
