Lili Reinhart is on a “journey of self-love” and don’t even think about stopping her.
The Riverdale star revealed on her Instagram Story on Friday night that she started therapy again. Although the crux of her post was about her starting treatment again, she wanted to encourage others not to feel ashamed for seeking help.
“Friendly reminder for anyone who needs to hear it: Therapy is never something to feel ashamed of,” she wrote on the social media platform.
“Everyone can benefit from seeing a therapist. Doesn’t matter how old or ‘proud’ you’re trying to be,” her statement continued.
She added, “We are all human. And we all struggle. Don’t suffer in silence.” Reinhart urged others, “Don’t feel embarrassed to ask for help.”
The Betty Cooper actress then explained why she was turning to therapy for her own self-care. “I’m 22. I have anxiety and depression,” she wrote. “And today I started therapy again. And so the journey of self-love begins for me.”
Many celebrities in Hollywood nowadays, such as Selena Gomez, have become much more transparent about mental health and personal struggles. Even Prince William is speaking out about it and has made the topic one of his biggest priorities.
Reinhart has been very open in the past about personal insecurities, including body dysmorphia, bullying, acne and more. In July, the 22-year-old was bullied by trolls online after some people made comments about her physical appearance.
“Telling someone they don’t deserve to feel insecure because their body is ‘fine’ or ‘just like’ whomever.. is wrong,” she tweeted on July 2. “That’s part of the problem. That’s part of body shaming.”
