As fans may recall, Bella has been very vocal about the importance of mental health over the years. While celebrating her 23rd birthday in 2019, Bella shared a note on Instagram about asking for help in times of need.
“I would like to add that everything you see online or through social media is not always what it seems,” she began, “the happiness we create online while being sad in real life makes no sense, but sometimes it just seems easier to live within your sadness rather than talk about it. if it wasn’t for the people closest to me, I probably would have still been in that place, and for that, I am forever thankful to them…don’t feel pressured by things online…if you don’t want to get out of bed, don’t.”
“If you want to cancel plans, cancel them,” she added. “Being kind and protective to yourself and your energy is something I’ve learned to be helpful. When the world feels like it is collapsing around you, you are allowed to ask for help… you do not have to deal w/ your mental state alone.”
