“Fog in the head”: Bella Hadid speaks openly about her mental problems

Supermodel Bella Hadid (25) speaks in an interview with “WSJ Magazine” open about their mental health problems. After a few “depressive episodes” she is currently doing much better, she says. But she also explains that she has to deal with her inner struggles from day to day. “I have good days too. Today is a good day,” said Hadid. “My brain fog is better, I don’t feel depressed. I don’t have as many anxieties as I used to.” But that can obviously change quickly, because she adds: “But tomorrow I could wake up and the complete opposite could be the case.”

The subject of fashion triggered fears

Bella Hadid also revealed that at one point it became difficult for her to put together an outfit and leave the house in it. The paparazzi in particular scared her. But after learning to manage her anxiety and other mental health issues, she would have also learned to embrace her fashion style and dress in a way that makes her happy.

“Over the past year it’s been really important for me to learn that it doesn’t matter if people talk about my style, whether they like it or not, it’s my style,” she says. “When I leave the house in the morning, all I think about is: Does this make me happy? Do I feel comfortable in it and do I feel comfortable?”

Selfies of crying Bella Hadid

In November, Hadid had a series of selfies on Instagram shared where she was seen crying. The American now explains:

“I was having really depressive episodes, and my mom or my doctor would ask me how I was, and instead of responding by text, I just sent them a photo. That was the easiest thing for me at the time because I could never explain how I felt,” said the younger sister of supermodel Gigi Hadid (26). “I was in just unbearable and debilitating mental and physical pain and didn’t know why. That was in the last three years,” she continued.

She published the photos “so that everyone who feels this way knows that it is okay to feel this way”. Hadid added: “Even though everything looks so beautiful on Instagram, at the end of the day we are all made of the same cloth. I felt like it was just good for me to speak my truth and eventually I wasn’t anymore able to post nice pictures. That’s it.”

The feedback on the post actually made her “less lonely” because many people who felt the same way got in touch. “When I go outside and remind myself that there are so many people who are going through similar things as I am, it makes me feel better,” she adds.
