Fatima Sana Shaikh shares self-love is a long process
When asked about what Fatima would like to say to those who are dealing with self doubt and body image issues, she said, “I would say that learn to be kind, and kind to yourself. It’s not easy to love yourself. It’s very difficult. I can say that start loving yourself but it doesn’t happen overnight. For me to look into the mirror and say that Fatima you are the best girl in the world, wo mere se abb tak convincingly nahi bola jaata. Humko bolte hai naa ke bolo you are the best actor and this and that, mai khud ko dekhti hu aur bolti hu ‘bhai neeche dekh lo’, Nahi dekha jaa raha khud se. (I cannot tell myself convincingly that I am the best girl in the world . I look at myself and tell ‘look down’)”
She added, “So, I would say that learn to be okay with being vulnerable, being okay with your flaws, your weaknesses. What you think might be your weakness might actually be your strength. Self doubt me itna hi apne aap ko neeche mat leke aao ke aapka soul crush ho jaaye. Aur, kyu ki log unko dabaate hai jo waise hi daba hua hai. Agar aap uss pressure me chale gaye naa toh aapko koi khada nahi kar payega.”(Don’t drown yourself in self doubt so much that your soul gets crushed. People bring down those who are already down. If you go into that pressure, then nobody can bring you up.)
