Michelle Madrigal recently dropped a vlog on her YouTube channel where she opened up about her dark past and how she eventually overcame it.
The actress turned fitness coach explained how being in showbiz at such an early age caused her trauma, depression, and anxiety. Michelle started dabbling in the entertainment world at the tender age of 15 and according to her, she was forced to mature faster because of it.
Furthermore, Michelle began to live rebelliously and engaged in self-destructive behavior in order to blunt the pain she was feeling but could not express or share.
“I think the way that I coped up with it was through rebellion. Talagang I was such a rebellious kid growing up. Teenage years ko I wasn't taking my artista life seriously. I was really partying almost every single night. As in self-destructive talaga. Why? To numb the pain.”
Michelle clarified though she was never an alcoholic she used to drink more just so she wouldn't feel the pain.
“I guess dealing with that growing up with no outlet, I was really lost. And I think at some point I was depressed I was always always drinking. I was never an alcoholic but every single night kahit pagod ako from work I would just drink because I don't wanna feel that pain.”
Nevertheless, Michelle successfully turned her life around by deciding to change herself. She also removed herself from the people who pull her down and surrounded herself with mature and stable people to serve as her role models.
Finally, Michelle shared an enlightening message to her viewers who are being subjected to the same feelings and emotions.
“If you guys have been feeling depressed, stressed, or anxious lately, know that your feelings and your emotions are valid. Note that it is normal to feel both emotions and super important to take care of our mental health as it is to take care of our physical health.”
