She stated, “I feel I have a responsibility to share this because somehow it might help one of you and that’s all I want from this. To give anyone suffering the belief that you can overcome your obstacles in life.”

“This time last year I was suffering from anxiety & depression behind closed doors. This resulted in me having insomnia, extreme mood swings & losing two stones in weight.”

“I was insecure, lost all my confidence & lacked love within myself. I couldn’t bear to look at myself in the mirror because I didn’t recognize myself both physically & mentally. I completely lost myself and I wasn’t sure who I was as a person anymore.”

She continued by explaining how it was affecting every aspect of her life and said that she had become upset by various messages she had gotten because of her weight.

“I was lost, depressed, and unhealthy, but somehow I developed the strength to work on myself,”

She proceeded by saying that she eventually discovered how to use criticism and negative comments to stimulate improvement in herself.

She concluded on a happier note, “I turned every negative comment into fuel and motivation to get better and today I stand here, healed with a healthy mind & a happy heart.”

 “I feel beautiful, confident & I love my body now more than ever. I never understood mental health until I experienced it myself and how important it is. I urge everybody to be kind because you never know what someone is going through, everyone has a story. Every cloud has a silver lining, I am living proof of this.
