Camila Cabello has opened up about her struggles with anxiety and fighting against her ‘shy’ inner self to come out of her shell in a heartfelt series of Instagram posts which have been liked over two million times and been praised for their candidness.
The 22-year-old explained to her 36 million followers that she fights a constant battle between her introverted and shy self, and the superstar performer within her.
She wrote: “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…then there’s the other Camila.”
“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.”
The Havana singer continued: “I went from never wanting to sing in front of my family to being addicted to performing, from being too anxious to hang out with new people to… still being a little anxious but having THE BEST time and making irreplaceable memories.”
It seems the Cuban pop star has been taking some time to reflect on things recently, ever since speculation of a possible romance with long time BFF and collaborator Shawn Mendes, as she also recently posted a cryptic post about ‘coming back to what your heart knows.’
Many took the message to be about getting together with Shawn, who she has been close friends with since 2014, but have recently been spotted kissing and holding hands.
