Sameera Reddy speaks about postpartum depression, body issues and being imperfectly perfect – Times of India

Actress Sameera Reddy is known to be a beacon of positivity and candour, by speaking about pressing issues on Instagram. On Wednesday, the actress opened up about struggling with body issues and post-partum depression, among other things.

“Was I ‘still’ sexy Sam? Can I now be branded a ‘yummy mummy’ ? How many followers did I have ? Was my worth still valid ? Was I now a ‘Former’ actress ? Just a ‘Mother’? Bollywood friends I can ‘plug’ in selfies ? 👉🏼 this was April 2019. I was coming back from a long break from the public eye and was asked these questions by an industry person as to what image was i going to project??” she began her post on Instagram.

She then began opening up about her struggles in the regard. “I had resurfaced after struggling with Post Partum Depression after Hans, lots of weight on me, self worth issues, a major emotional struggle and confusion with where I stood in my own mind. A career girl was now ‘just a mother’ . Lost . So I surrendered . I remember telling Akshai, I can’t hide . I can’t lie to myself . I struggle . I’m as scared as anyone else out there,” she said, adding that all she wanted to do was to own her real self.

“I don’t have a plan . All I know is I want to own it and have any other woman feel she can too . Own her flaws , her scars , her struggles , her weight , her losing battles, her low self worth, her grey hair , her hair loss , her cellulite, her pimples , her age , her pain, her expectations. And that’s
#imperfectlyperfect . Many of my posts aim to remind people that accepting and loving yourself is the most powerful tool to achieve a positive space . And I’m so grateful to have our community of amazing women and men who want change , who seek a real space, who know there is a place for everyone and we don’t need to pull each other down to survive . The past year has only taught me that the truth does set you free. We’re all in this together 🙏🏼❤️
#imperfectlyperfect,” she concluded the post.
