23-year-old ‘To All the Boys’ acting star Lana Condor is opening up about battling body dysmorphia!
Condor says she’s struggled with the condition for quite some time; opening up to SELF magazine in a new interview: “When you see yourself in a mirror constantly, and you’re, like, wearing nothing, you can really just nitpick yourself to death, which is so unhealthy. When I stopped doing ballet and classes, I felt like that was the beginning of where I could start working on the body dysmorphia…[that] was the beginning of, Okay, I definitely need to heal because the way that I thought about myself when I was dancing was not healthy.”
She continued: “I’m not in a place where I can say, ‘Oh, yeah, it’s over.’ I have to work on it every single day.” Condor then goes on to say that exercise, therapy and her boyfriend have really helped. “Working out in a healthy way has helped a lot because it makes me feel good. It makes me feel stronger. I used to work out constantly… And that was so unhealthy for me. So now I’m trying to do things that I just genuinely love and not in an overt, burnout way.” Watch Lana’s interview with SELF below and let us know what you think:…HAVE YOU EVER MET SOMEONE WITH BODY DYSMORPHIA BEFORE???
