- I used to feel low and sad all the time: Ileana D'Cruz
- Ileana says there was a time when she wanted to "end things "
- "If you have depression, seek help," says Ileana
Ileana D'Cruz said that the depression is "real" and it can be dealt with. "Don't sit back and think it will get okay but go get help. Like you have a sprain and go get yourself checked, if you have depression, seek help," IANS quoted her as saying.
Ileana also said that imperfections are a part of life and one should learn to love who they are. "You are a human being and are allowed to be imperfect, and you are allowed to be flawed. There is a lot of beauty in your imperfections, in your uniqueness. You may look at us actors and think that 'Oh my God, they are so pretty, so perfect'. But that's not how it is. It takes two hours to get ready and look like this. Love yourself for who you are and trust me if you are happy from within, you are the most beautiful person and your smile is your best asset," she said.
"I am not saying that I had this miraculous recovery, every day is a process, every day is a step towards healing yourself and getting better," Ileana added.
