Bella Hadid shares tearful selfies and mental health message

In a lengthy Instagram post Tuesday, the model shared some tearful selfies and quoted singer and “Red Table Talk” cohost Willow Smith.

“‘That feeling of thinking you’re good enough or insecure about your art — is natural — but at the same time, I feel like it’s learned,” Hadid quoted Smith. “‘All people are different, each person has something special and unique to offer.'”

“This has pretty much been my daily, every night, for a few years now,” Hadid wrote in response to Smith’s quote in the caption. “Social media is not real. For anyone who is having a hard time, please remember that.”

“Sometimes all you need to know is that you’re not alone,” Hadid continued.

“Self-help and mental illness/chemical imbalance are not linear and it’s almost like a smooth rollercoaster of obstacles… it has its ups and downs, and side to side,” the caption read. “But I want you to know that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, and the roller coaster always stops at some point.”

“There’s always room to restart it, but for me it’s always been nice to know that even if it’s only for a few days, weeks or months, it gets better to some degree, even for a moment.” .”

Hadid concluded by writing, “I’m not sure why, but it feels more and more difficult not to share my truth here. Thank you for seeing me and thank you for listening. I love you.”

CNN has reached out to representatives for Smith and Hadid for additional comment.
