She is finally at peace with herself… Since the summer of 2021, Bella Hadid has been in a relationship with artistic director Marc Kalman. While her tumultuous relationship with singer The Weeknd has long been in the news, it was in the Victoria’s Secret podcast, titled VS Voices, that the pretty brunette revealed that she had already been “abused.” Transparently, the model explained, “I constantly went back to men – and also women – who had abused me and that’s where people’s fun came in. I started to not having boundaries, not only sexually, physically and emotionally, but then it extended to my workspace,” adding, “I didn’t want to associate with anyone – I didn’t want to have any boundaries. “Friends, I didn’t want to have a family. I wanted to make everyone happy when I was working. Only other people’s opinions mattered, not mine, because I was basically putting my worth in everyone’s hands.”
Earlier in this interview, Bella Hadid explained that she felt like her voice wasn’t as important as the men around her and that it affected her relationships later on. “I always felt like my voice was never heard growing up. I grew up around men – whether in relationships or family, or whatever – where I was constantly said that my voice was less important than theirs”, she revealed, before specifying : “Then, the fact of entering into relationships while growing up, and of not having the limits to be able to defend myself and making my voice heard, affected me very intensely in my adult relationships. My nervous system would break down. It was fight or flight. Either I would go quiet and cry, or I would rage and leave.”
Meditating has helped Bella Hadid tremendously
In all transparency, the little sister of Gigi Hadid assured that following therapy and doing meditation had been healing tools for her. In addition, taking time for her, away from social networks, would have helped her. “It’s very cliché, but not having other people’s energy and their projections on you is one of the most powerful things ever. It may sound trite, but it works,” she said. .
