New mum Molly-Mae has bravely opened up about having ‘a bit of a breakdown’

Opening up about your mental health struggles is one of the most difficult things to do. It takes a lot of strength and even more courage, but it is always worth it.

In a recent YouTube video, Molly-Mae reflected on how she recently suffered “a bit of” a meltdown.

She told her followers that she had a difficult time when she was in New York recently.

She said she was trying to get ready for an event, but she wasn’t feeling up for it.

“As women – and I’m sure guys get this too, you sometimes just don’t feel nice even when you make an effort.”

Molly decided to call her fiancé Tommy Fury for some support, but she felt even more upset after the call because she missed her family.

“Then I was on the phone to Tommy and talking about Bambi and I was just getting upset.”

“Then I feel like suddenly, all at once, everything came on top of me. I had a bit of a breakdown just before we went out.

“Some tears were shed and I had a bit of a moment which was weird because I was literally feeling fine all day,” she explained.

However, Molly-Mae said sometimes it all just hits you at once.

“Maybe it’s everything, the jet lag and eating rubbish food and missing Bambi so much and really trying not to think about it too much.”

The former Love Island star reminded her followers that we all have bad days and down moments, but that’s normal. The worst thing you can do is beat yourself up over it.
