Kristen Bell Is Reflecting On The Importance Of Self-love.
Throughout the month of May, which marks National Mental Health Awareness Month, celebrities are sharing personal videos about the advice they would give their younger selves.
Kristen Bell recently partnered with The Child Mind Institute's #MyYoungerSelf campaign and shared a personal story about her struggle with anxiety and depression in a video.
The Child Mind Institute's #MyYoungerSelf campaign is aimed at promoting acception and awareness when it comes to mental health and learning disorders.
"You deserve to feel just as beautiful on the days you wear no makeup and the days you don't shower and the days you feel like you're depressed,” the actress said. “You have an obligation to take care of yourself from the inside out, because that's how you can truly feel beautiful."
In the video, Kristen said she's struggled she was 18 and advised her younger self and other women to not be fooled by “this game of perfection that humans play."
“Instagram and magazines and TV shows strive for a certain aesthetic and everything looks so beautiful and people seem like they don't have any problems,” she said. "But everyone's human. Everyone has problems. Everyone feels yucky on the inside sometimes."
