27-godišnja britanka Iskra Lawrence na Instagram profilu je objavila fotografiju na kojoj uplakana pozira i bez šminke. Kosu je sakrila kapuljačom a svojim fanovima je kazala da je doživjela emotivni slom i to upravo zahvaljujući ovoj društvenoj mreži. Manekenka je već ranije otkrila da se bori s tjelesnom dismorfijom, poremećaj zbog kojeg osoba postaje opsjednuta nekom umišljenom tjelesnom manom, a ovaj put progovorila je i o svom mentalnom zdravlju.

It’s still an internal struggle to post absolutely everything. I felt like a mess, and felt like I looked a mess and my emotions were shook after something that happened yesterday and a combination of other personal issues that I think lead to this emotional breakdown. 🙈 I try and commit to showing you ALL the realness, even though I do feel more comfortable posting the “best bits” which there is nothing wrong with but I’m hoping this post can make at least one person feel better with not being OK. 💕 I took this pic and wanted to post it because Instagram can be completely unrelatable, overwhelming, triggering and even damaging for our mental health. 🚫 Don’t ever compare your happiness, confidence, body, beauty, relationships, success or life to ANYONE online. Many people are struggling with their own issues privately or publicly and no one has to share online or post things they aren’t comfortable with. 💕 To myself I want to be honest, I want to accept myself in all of my emotions and I know it’s OK to cry. I am gentle on myself and practise self care. I’ve surrounded myself with family, friends and faith so I know I’m supported and loved no matter what and I’m beyond grateful to have that. 🙏 So shoutout to all my people going through something, I see you and I’m sending you my love and a huge hug. 🤗 To anyone who has my number please don’t text I’m fine now and will explain when I see you what happened, and I’m grateful I had the opportunity to share this with you all when I was upset and not 100% or all smiles like I usually am. PS feel free to post a crying selfie and tag me I know I’m not alone but can’t remember the last time I saw a photo like this on the gram🤔🤷♀️ 💕 #cryingcusimhuman #nomakeup #Fyourfacetune #itsOKtonotbeOK #cryingdoesnotmakeyouweak #mentalhealthawareness #realstaGram
– Još uvijek se borim s potrebom da objavljujem apsolutno sve. Osjećam se užasno, izgledam kao užasno, a jedna situacija koja mi se jučer dogodila me toliko emotivno potresla da sam u kombinaciji s drugim problemima doživjela emotivni slom – napisala je manekenka u svojoj objavi, koju je lajkalo gotovo 300 hiljada ljudi.

Kazala je i da se na ovaj korak odlučila u nadi da će pomoći drugima koji se bore s istim problemom.
– Objavila sam ovu fotografiju da vam pokažem kako Instagram može biti previše za vas i može biti okidač za probleme, može vam čak uništiti mentalno zdravlje. Nikad nemojte uspoređivati svoju sreću, samopouzdanje, tijelo, lice, veze ili uspjeh s bilo kim na društvenim mrežama. Mnogi se ljudi bore sa svojim unutarnjim demonima i nitko ne mora objavljivati nešto zbog čega se ne osjeća ugodno. Ja želim biti iskrena sama sa sobom, prihvatiti sebe sa svim svojim emocijama i znam da je u redu plakati – napisala je Iskra.
Od svojih pratitelja dobila je brojen poruke podrške, ali su joj se zahvalili i na iskrenosti.

Its much easier to post a pic like this, when I’m my usual happy self, my bestie did my hair and makeup, and I’m feeling my best. I don’t even think twice, I feel good I feel beautiful inside outside- it’s gram time. So I’m proud I was able to post that selfie the other day, because I had the courage to not only post the “best bits” I posted something that made me feel uncomfortable that I would usually be scared to. But it worried my loved ones who don’t live in the same country as me and then it got shared all over the world online and people started to misinterpret why I was posting and so I don’t know how much longer I can keep it up. I felt like my vulnerability was being taken advantage of for a headline, and I suddenly It felt like a personal moment was taken from me and critiqued. The whole purpose was to encourage anyone who is struggling to know they aren’t alone, that all emotions are valid and are relative to ones own life experience. That it is human to cry, it’s the soul detoxing, and also to disrupt the usual content that is created online perpetuating this “perfect life, relationships, career, body etc” that isn’t always real. Thank you to all the beautiful souls who sent me love, positivity and prayers. The real ones who created a movement and felt able to share their raw and real emotions – thank you for sharing your stories I’ve been so humbled and moved I love you all so much thanks for being the best family online I could ever ask for😘❤️🙏
