Charli D’Amelio Opens Up About Having an Eating Disorder
Charli D’Amelio is using her platform to hopefully help others.
The 16-year-old TikTok star opened up in an Instagram story about her struggles with an eating disorder.
“i’ve always tried to use my voice when it comes to issues surrounding body image, but I’ve never talked about my own struggles with eating disorders,” Charli wrote.
“it’s so uncomfortable to admit to even your closest friends and family, let alone the world,” she continued. “i’ve been afraid to share that I have an eating disorder, but ultimately i hope that by sharing this i can help someone else. i know eating disorders are something that so many other people are also battling behind closed doors.”
Charli then went on to apologize for playing a song that could have been triggering to some people.
“to anyone i could have hurt by unintentionally playing a song and not realizing that those lyrics could have [triggered] you, i deeply and truly apologize and i hope you know that i never intended to cause you harm,” she wrote.
“for anyone that is struggling with this, i know some days can be worse than others, but i really hope you’ll swipe up to this link and get help if you need it,” Charli added. “i need you to know you are not alone. remember it’s ok to reach out and get help. we all need help sometimes. i love you all and please stay strong.”
Charli included a link to the National Eating Disorders Association, and you can find resources for them RIGHT HERE.
