Bella Hadid opens up about mental health in candid post

Written by FDM

Bellah Hadid has practical advice on mental health issues and how important it is to spread awareness.

October 10th was Mental Health Awareness day. A struggle that not even the most successful people escape. Bella Hadid is one of them, and she took to her Instagram to share her endeavors in honor of the day.

In honor of World Mental Health Day, Bella explained that she still has bad days in addition to the good ones. “Grateful and proud of myself to be in the place that I am today, going into my 23rd year of life,” she wrote alongside a quote from mental health writer Hannah Blum. Bella went on to say: “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.”

You have to be able to take a step back and take care of yourself, she continues: “You have to be able to take a step back and take care of yourself, she continues: “Do not put pressure on the things you see online. If you do not want to get out of bed, do not do it. If you want to cancel your plans, cancel them, she advises before inviting users to ask for help if they feel bad. You do not have to manage your mental state alone.”

She went on to stress the importance of asking for help when needed: “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.”

I wanted to say thank you so much for all the birthday wishes. You have no idea how much it means to me reading each message.💛 Yesterday was mental health awareness day. A struggle that I know a majority of us have dealt with in the past or dealing with currently. 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. if it wasn’t for the people closest to me, I probably would have still been in that place, and for that, I am forever thankful to them…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. When the world feels like it is collapsing around you, you are allowed to ask for help… you do not have to deal w/ your mental state alone. We need to spread love and allow love in. Be kind ! To the people around you! strangers! everyone!.be aware! the moments that we have are singular and you will never know the struggle or the pain of another person until you are in their shoes. so reach out n ask. We all need love&support and if you can be the one to bring somebody happiness or a calmness that they can't find in themselves, please be that person..You never know how much your words or just a smile can change someone’s day n 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!!I am going to write a new morning mantra right now and you should too! I love all of you out there so much! Sending a big virtual hug
