Fashion blogger Sharon Mwangi has said she has been fighting depression for a longtime now but has never let the public know.
She recently took to social media to share her depression story saying that she was forced to mask it with a warm face but was suffering inside.
“If you know me or if you’ve followed me for a while you know that I literally always have a smile on my face & on all my pictures too. However, For years, I have battled depression, self doubt, among other issues & I did it with a smile on my face. (Talk about being a pro at masking lol),” she said.
The fashion blogger went on to add that she had to finally let go of her fears and opened up with the issue which made her feel better.
“I finally let go of all my fears and self doubt and I open up in my latest video, (probably the most vulnerable you’ll ever see me – direct link in bio) and talk about my personal experience with mental health, a conversation I feel is very neglected in Kenya although a lot of us battle these issues. And Oh, this means I’m back on YouTube now after months of being away ,” she said.
“I have since learnt (in the hardest ways possible) & taught myself to find happiness and inner peace in myself. I still struggle sometimes but I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and I hope for anyone who’s still struggling that they’ll get to this point too.”
