In a recent post on Instagram, Pakistani actress Mawra Hocan opened up about her battle with anxiety.
The actress spoke about the fact that it has been an year that she’s diagnosed with anxiety and now she is no longer embarrassed of it.
“We all have our days of weakness & breakdowns, I am lucky my job allows me to express my grief on screen. It’s been over a year since I’ve been diagnosed with anxiety & I’m no longer embarrassed of it.”
Mawra also sent out a message to people telling them that she went to a therapist and people should seek help in whatever way possible.
“I’m putting this out because I want all of you who fight anxiety everyday to be okay with it & not be ashamed of it. I went to a therapist in Sydney at the end of 2018 who told me that even though certain deficiencies contribute to my anxiety, it gets worse because I’m fearful of it. I decided that day to no longer be afraid of it or hide it from anybody at all.”
“In 2020 I can easily identify when my body starts to feel anxiety & more often than not I’m able to control it without any help. I drink a lot of water & I pray. Anybody reading this can have their own method or seek help from a therapist or a family member.”
She concluded her post by saying,
“Having said that I want to tell you that even if you break down , you’re brave, even if you cry you’re not weak. Whoever you are I want you to know that every new day will be a better day. InshAllah❤️”
