Hindi na itinago ni Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo ang tunay niyang pinagdadaanan at ayaw na niyang pagtakpan ito sa pamamagitan ng mga magagandang photos na pino-post niya via Instagram.
Inamin ng Sports Illustrated model na dumaraan siya isang personal turmoil na ilang buwan na ang nakakaraan. Nag-ugat daw ito sa pakikipaghiwalay niya sa New England Patriots player boyfriend, Danny Amendola.
“I was depressed. I had no appetite, was drinking way too much, smoking, couldn’t sleep, and couldn’t eat. But I was still taking photos on social media and pretending everything was great.
“I was going through a difficult situation that left me mentally, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt and it had taken its toll physically.
“The feeling of despair is a relatable one, so I feel a responsibility to anyone else going through something difficult to say that it’s ok to not be ok.
“I am looking healthier. I have my appetite back and am treating my body correctly,” sey pa ng former beauty queen.
Pinaalala pa ni Olivia na mapanlinlang daw ang social media. Kaya raw nitong pagtakpan ang tunay mong pinagdaraanan at grabe raw ang pressure na binibigay nito sa kahit sino.
“It can trick us into thinking everything is perfect in other’s worlds. We are all connected because we navigate life with similar ups and downs; good times and bad.
“Social media can create a crazy amount of pressure to live up to an idealistic standard of ‘perfection’ which obviously doesn’t exist!
“Hard times happen and the most important part is putting one foot in front of the other, knowing the moment will pass, and being patient with yourself.
“No filter is going to take away from the normal ups and downs of life that we all have.”
