Camila Cabello is getting candid about her battle with social anxiety.
The 22-year-old songstress took to her Instagram to reveal that growing up she was never one to embrace the spotlight and couldn’t even bring herself to sing in front of friends and family.
“I was generally incredibly nervous and socially anxious when I was little…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,’” Camila explained.
She added that while she used to think some people were just “born” to be a certain way, she now knows that isn’t the truth.
Camila continued, “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.”
“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 ❤️,” Camila concluded.
