Camila Cabello Opens Up About Her Anxiety: ‘It Was Bringing Me So Much Pain’
Camila Cabello recently went to Instagram to prove that she’s just like everyone else and has immense struggles that she deals with. In a lengthy post, she opened up about her anxiety and what she does to keep it under control. She wrote:
“All of us go through the same things and are trying to figure it out – none of us are exempt from stress, anxiety, sadness, pain, and countless other internal struggles, whether it’s moments of it, or longer than just moments – for me, i suffered from anxiety so much that I had no choice but to change, to look for different tools that could help me, because it was bringing me so much pain- the last few months especially, I’ve worked so hard on this and am experiencing so much growth – which means, to anybody struggling, that growth and change is completely possible!”
“But today I just want to share this loving kindness meditation that is my favorite thing I’ve learned so far- because it’s easy to forget in our own struggles (I’ve been guilty of this and that’s why I love this particular practice so much) that everybody around us, and on this planet is fighting their own battle, and is feeling their own pain – some at a way more excruciating level than others, and therefore, EVERYBODY, even the people that most piss you off, are in DESPERATE need of love and kindness – I hope you try this practice today : for 10 minutes I breathe and picture somebody I love and say these phrases, I picture them happy and smiling as if it’s the best day of their lives, I picture them sad and wish them with all my heart that they be free from it – then I picture myself and say them about myself, then someone I’m not as close to (or someone you don’t get along with so much), and then I picture all the humans on the planet, and then all animals and living beings too- it really makes me feel connected and not alone , because the truth is – we never are, we’re all in it together.”
Camila is currently in England, where she is filming a new version of Cinderella. Per Elle, the singer spent Valentine’s Day there with her boyfriend, Shawn Mendes.
