Reflecting on that a few weeks later, she says that learning how to communicate her feelings has been “revolutionary” in her life. “You realize that people truly care about you and they’ll help you, and they don’t mind helping you.” Now when she feels down, she tells someone (or a lot of someones). “Being in those places is inevitable for me; I’m going to end up there again,” she adds. “But the fact that I’m prepared now to go to those places—and I have a toolbox, and I know I can pull myself out—is really helpful to me in my mental health journey.”
Also helpful: regular self-care, which goes hand in hand with her message of self-love. She’s become something of an icon for the latter, but as with her success as an artist, those feelings of confidence and empowerment are hard-earned. “I take self-love very seriously. And I take it seriously because when I was younger, I wanted to change everything about myself,” she says. “I didn’t love who I was. And the reason I didn’t love who I was is because I was told I wasn’t lovable by the media, by [people at] school, by not seeing myself in beauty ads, by not seeing myself in television...by lack of representation. My self-hatred got so bad that I was fantasizing about being other people. But you can’t live your life trying to be somebody else. What’s the point?”

Opinion | The World 9/11 Took From UsIn Opinion Omer Aziz writes about the Sept. 11 attacks: '18 years later, I am still in mourning, and perhaps always will be, for the worlds that went up in smoke on that September day.' You need to name the people that were responsible for it. It was Islamic radicals. Muslims. Don't be such a coward to call them out. That doesn't mean all Muslims, but those people that killed 3000 18 yrs ago were Muslims! Seems New York Times has a new twist... it wasn't Islamic terrorists in their minds but rather AIRPLANES WITH THEIR OWN MINDS!! WAKEUPNEWYORKTIMES How about you publish something, from an actual victim (maybe one of the tens of thousands who lost a love one) instead of a muslim who is offended by extra scrutiny?
