Bella Hadid recently returned to social media after a subtle hiatus and she’s shared an important message about mental health and wellbeing.

The model returned to Instagram last week, sharing a series of photos of crystals, self-help books and personal photos of herself presumably at her mother Yolanda Hadid’s Pennsylvania ranch.

However, it was the caption of the post that aimed to leave a crucial message about mental wellbeing to her followers.

“I took some time away to reflect and learn about myself in a way that would be too much to explain at the moment, but with time I will express,” the 24-year-old said.

The model went on to say she’s been renewed with a new “sense of self-love [she’s] always lacked”.

“The memories and fortune I came back with are pure wisdom, a closer relationship with myself & my spirituality, a sense of self-love that I have always lacked, a few great friends, and these books that saw me through. I found myself, my strength and my light again,” Hadid said.

Most importantly, Hadid highlighted that taking care of your mental health is “worth it to get to your full potential”.

“I am only here to be an instrument of peace & love to help people that suffer and hopefully the world, in time,” she said. “Thank you to my angels who have supported and have continued to love me, for me. You saved me.

“Take time to get help for your mental health. It’s worth it to get to your full potential.”

Receiving well over one million likes on the post, it’s clear the message resonated with many people.

Many flooded to the comments section of the post, including Hadid’s father, Mohamed Hadid, who said, “I love you Bella. You are a shining light in the darkest night.”

Given the current global situation, it’s more important than ever to focus on self-love and being kind to yourself, just as Hadid said.
