Kylie Jenner got real with her social media followers in her latest Instagram post.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is currently enjoying a trip to the Turks and Caicos with her best friends in celebration of the release of her Kylie Skin summer collection, and she has recently been posting a series of incredible pictures from her lavish vacation. However, she decided to be as genuine as possible with her fans, reminding them that what they see on the internet doesn’t always correspond to the truth.
Kylie shared a gorgeous Instagram photo of herself standing by the ocean, facing an amazing sunset with her arms open while wearing a skintight white minidress. She appeared to be reflecting upon her life, particularly upon growing up in the spotlight, which she said “just isn’t normal.”
The 21-year-old explained that she had lost friends throughout her life — she was possibly referring to cutting ties with her former best friend, Jordyn Woods, after the latter was involved in a cheating scandal with Khloe Kardashian’s baby father, Tristan Thompson — and that she, too, sometimes loses her sense of sanity.
The Kylie Cosmetics founder then revealed she has “struggled with anxiety my whole young adult life,” and that she had a hard time dealing with “all the internal ups and downs” after giving birth to her daughter, Stormi Webster, last February.
“I keep a whole lot to myself but just wanted to share and let you know I’m human. my life is not perfect and what you see here on social media is just the surface. be gentle with yourself, move on, and let go. we are all capable of great things, worthy of love, and allowed to express ourselves. do more of what makes you happy and be unapologetic,” she wrote in her caption.
Kylie is currently enjoying a well-deserved tropical vacation with her best pals, including Scott Disick’s girlfriend Sofia Richie, Stassie Karanikolaou, Yris Palmer, Ariel — her makeup artist — and Draya Michele. And while all of the women in Kylie’s entourage have been sharing lots of photos and videos of their luxurious trip, Kylie probably felt the need to open up to her fans and explain that, despite her wealth and fame, she also goes through the same emotional struggles that everyone else does.
However, many of her 140 million followers did not seem to be buying Kylie’s inspirational moment.
“Hahaha try going through all of this WITHOUT the money,” one critic wrote, garnering hundreds of likes.
