Fatima shares her difficult days



Mumbai: In recent times, several actors have opened up about dealing with mental health issues.

Opening up on the subject, Fatima Sana Shaikh says why it is important to seek help when needed.

“I have gone in for therapy, and that’s why I am here one-and-a-half years later. It is important. I feel everybody should go in for therapy. It’s not because you are emotionally weak, they (therapists) give you tools to understand your pattern. Therapy has helped me,” Fatima shares.

From being overly self-critical to being pragmatic, Fatima says she has come a long way. “I was very judgmental about myself. I have not been kind to myself. I needed a lot of validation from the outside to feel that I was good as a person. I associated self-love with narcissism and was extremely hard on myself,” she confesses.

It has taken the actress a while to change her thought process. So, is she kind to herself now? “I have to practice it. I am kinder to myself than I used to be. It’s a pattern that you have to break. You keep going back to it, but you need to keep pushing,” she replies.
