She explained: “At a young age, as a child entertainer, your feelings are always the last thing that matters to people. I think that you become a people lover very quickly and try to be whatever each of you wants you to be. And so I think that in many cases you will be misunderstood. I’ve fought a lot against it for most of my adult life, and I’m still new to my adult life. And I think that’s something I work towards every day so as not to worry that people won’t understand me because I understand myself. ‘
Nowadays she has her own realm and is always focused on understanding herself without caring too much about what others think of her.
“Sometimes it’s a lot easier because I just have to please myself. I find it so easy to be alone because I really like myself. That’s what’s so crazy because people assume if you always want to please or be nice to people because you have a problem or an appreciation problem with yourself. But actually no. You don’t know what you want and you project onto me what gives me the stress. I alone, in my own room, am damn happy, ”she continued.
