Bella Hadid has been avoiding social media for the last little while, after her family made headlines for a domestic dispute between her mother Yolanda and her sister Gigi's baby daddy, Zayn. Apparently Zayn called Yolanda a "dutch slut" and that is apparently an insult, even though it's my new favourite saying.
Bella made her way back to Instagram today to share a few thoughts she had on mental health and social media. The model shared an album full of photos of herself crying along with her little pep talk and lets just say, even though she looks sad Bella is the hottest sad chick around! If you need some words of support; Bella is here for you.
"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. 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. ) 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"
