Camila Cabello en luchas contra la ansiedad
La cantante Camila Cabello habló sobre su batalla con la ansiedad y alentó a las personas a luchar por sí mismas, ya que son muy valiosas.
Camila reveló que cuando era niña nunca actuaba frente a su familia y amigos, ya que se ponía nerviosa cuando le pedían que lo hiciera.
“Canté en mi habitación cuando mis padres se fueron a Walmart y lloré cuando un día los vi filmándome a través de la puerta”.
“Yo estaba abrumada. En general, era increíblemente nerviosa y socialmente ansiosa cuando era pequeña; y la gente siempre tiene esta expresión de incredulidad cuando les digo eso”, escribió.
La creadora de ‘Senorita’ recordó haber dado una entrevista recientemente en la que le preguntaron cómo terminó aquí en medio de sus problemas de salud mental, y dijo: “Siento que toda mi vida ha habido dos Camila en mí”.
“Hay una pequeña Camila que está aterrorizada por lo desconocido, está consciente de todas las maneras en que todo puede salir mal y piensa que es más seguro quedarse en casa a jugar a la pelota. Luego está la otra Camila que sabe lo que quiere de la vida, es consciente del poco tiempo que tiene para dejar que la pequeña Camila haga funcionar el espectáculo mientras pasa el tiempo, agarra a la joven de la mano y la obliga a salir por la puerta diciendo: ‘Vamos. Vas a sobrevivir, y no voy a perderte ahora’…

I remember growing up hearing stories of the singers I loved, all the stories sounded the same, kids who would grow up performing for their families and putting on talent shows for their parents when they were little who grew up to be dazzling to me. I was the opposite, I never ever sang in front of my parents or friends and would get flustered when they would ask me to, I sang in my room when my parents left for Walmart and cried when one day I saw them filming me through the crack of the door, I got teary eyed when people sang happy birthday to me because people looking at me actually made me overwhelmed. I was generally incredibly nervous and socially anxious when I was little; and people always have this look of disbelief when I tell them that. I did an interview the other day where I got it again, the interviewer said something along the lines of “So… how’d you end up here?” The answer is, I feel like my whole life there’s been two Camila’s in me. There’s little Camila that is terrified of the unknown, is aware of all the ways everything can go wrong, (actually can picture them vividly lol), and thinks it’s safer to stay home than to play ball. Then there’s the other Camila. And she knows what she wants out of life, is aware of how little time I have to let little Camila run the show while time passes by, and grabs young me by the hand and forces her out the door saying “Let’s go. You’ll survive, and I’m not gonna miss out on this. Let’s go.” And that is literally how I can sum up how I’ve gotten to this point in my life. (I’m talking about as a person, not success.) remember feeling discouraged when I felt like some people were just “born” to do things. That they always had it in them. “They were always this outgoing, they always loved to entertain, they were always this bold, they were always this outspoken.” (…..continue)

(part 2..) The truth is you decide who you’re going to be. Every day. I’m not talking about talent or success. I just mean the type of person you’re going to be. If you haven’t been very brave, or very social, or wild, or an adventure seeker, if you describe yourself as the opposite of those things… it doesn’t mean you can’t be. The other you needs to grab little you by the hand, yank you by the hairs and tell you, “Let’s go.” Little me hasn’t left. I just don’t let her boss me around as much. I felt like sharing because I think sometimes we see other people do things and think “Ah, well.. that’s just not me. I’ve never been like that.” It’s NOT TRUE. I’m telling you. I went from never wanting to sing in front of my family to being addicted to performing, from being too anxious to hang out with new people to… still being a little anxious but having THE BEST time and making irreplaceable memories. The essence of me is the same, but i’ve changed so much as a person. You choose who you’re going to be. Force yourself to do what you’re afraid of, always- and go after what you want and who you want to be, because you’re worth that. You’re worth the fight. It’s the most worthwhile one there is. Love you ❤️
