So last week it was mental health awareness week. A bit late but I am going to talk about my struggles. However, May as a whole is mental health awareness week. I have had quite a few problems with bullying, anxiety, and body confidence issues. Being an influencer on my main instagram @emily.nedily can actually get quite stressful sometimes. And people will probably be thinking, having all those followers would be so amazing. But the reality is, you are constantly worried about what people will say or think. I have got used to it and don't care what people think. But when you are new to this world of fame, you can struggle quite a bit. There is always the pressure to look a certain way. When I was younger I used to be bullied a lot and this caused me to become very self-centred, on top of this my dad had passed away. Which sent me into a downward spiral as I got older.
I started having quite a lot of body-confidence issues, and I didn't want to answer questions in class, as I was worried that everyone who bullied me would laugh at me if I got it wrong. It was just such an isolating time. I felt like I couldn't speak to anyone at all. So I started putting a lot of time into getting fit.
I am a lot happier than I was and there are a lot of things I don't want to mention on here. But just know you aren't alone.
