Model Reveals Anxiety On Social Media
Following our prior stories on models who have exposed the day-to-day reality of their lives, another model, Stina Sanders has gone a step further. She has opened up to the Independent about the psychotherapy she has undertaken to help her with the anxiety she suffers from and how social media encourages people to be "fake":
“I know how fake social media is and how a simple photo can portray someone in a completely different light. Unfortunately having the model stigma attached to me hasn’t been easy, so I wanted to reveal what life really is behind the mask. My life isn’t as pretty as it seems - I suffer from anxiety and have a disabled sibling. No one’s life is perfect.”
By being vulnerable and honest about how challenging it has been to keep up her facade, Stina has opened the door for other people to know they aren’t alone and that they don’t have to suffer in silence. How many of us have found ourselves pretending to be someone we are not at times? Honesty is a trait common to the most successful legends - you’ll find that they are often most honest with themselves and others.
