‘I’ve experienced breakdowns and burnouts,’ Bella Hadid says
Bella Hadid, the supermodel, recently opened up about her mental health rollercoaster of “breakdowns and burnouts.”
She reminded her 47 million Instagram followers that “you’re not alone” in an Instagram post. Bella, 25, has previously revealed that she has suffered from severe depression and anxiety since she was a teenager. She was replying to a video by Willow Smith on insecurity and anxiety, stating Willow’s remarks made her feel “less alone.”
She posted a snippet from Willow’s video, as well as several images of herself crying. “Social media is a fabrication. Please keep it in mind if you’re having trouble. Sometimes all you need to hear is that you’re not alone, and that’s all you need to hear. I’ve had enough breakdowns and burnouts to know that if you work hard enough on yourself, spending time alone to understand your traumas, triggers, joys, and routine, you’ll always be able to understand or learn more about your own pain and how to endure it. “ In the caption, the model wrote,
Bella has already spoken up about her mental health. She claimed it was “a battle that I know a majority of us have dealt with in the past or are struggling with today” on Mental Health Awareness Day in 2019.

Lana Del Rey’s accounts were deactivated in September, and Ed Sheeran has largely been absent from social media since 2015.
Meta (formerly known as Facebook), the corporation that owns Instagram, has recently come under fire, with one former employee suggesting that it is more harmful than other kinds of social media.
Last month, whistleblower Frances Haugen stated that Instagram is unquestionably exacerbating hate.
“Instagram is about social comparison, about bodies, about people’s lifestyles, and that’s what makes it worse for youngsters,” she told a joint committee of MPs and Lords.
In her message, Bella also offered some advice to those who may be struggling with their own mental health.
