Lily Collins shares heartfelt message for #mentalhealth awarenessweek

We’re not crying. You’re crying.

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / May 22 2020

In honour of #mentalhealthawarenessweek in the U.S., Lily Collins chose to share her own mental health journey with a lengthy Instagram post. Alongside a photo of herself as a teen, her caption spoke to her history with eating disorders:

“On the surface, this was a happy, confident girl. On the inside, I was struggling with so much insecurity and doubt within myself. At this age throughout my late teens and into my twenties, it felt really difficult to speak out about my internal struggles — with family, with relationships, eating disorders and overall uncertainty.”

Lily reminds her followers that they are not alone and that it’s okay to ask for help if you’re struggling with mental health issues, “we’re here to get each other through these moments not judge one another for having them. So if I could remind that younger me of one thing it would be that I’m never alone. We’re never alone.”

She finishes by saying, “let’s give ourselves and each other a little boost of encouragement this week and everyday moving forward and try our hardest not to judge one another too harshly.”

Nicely said.

Need to relax? Selena Gomez shared her self-care routine and it’s *chefs kiss*.
