Aaliyah Kashyap and Shane Gregoire, who got engaged a couple of months back, regularly talk about love, life, and everything in between on their podcast titled ‘Opposites Attract’. In the latest episode, the couple shared their stories of battling insecurities and thoughts on confidence.
Aaliyah shares her struggles with weight and body image
Aaliyah shared that she is insecure about her weight and body right now, and reflected on how bad such insecurities can be to one’s mental health. “It’s detrimental how bad your mental health can get because of this,” she said.
Antidepressants and weight gain
When Aaliyah began taking antidepressants two years ago, she started gaining a lot of weight. “I think I’ve put on about 12 or 13 kgs in the last year and a half, which is a lot for me. It’s a huge change from what I’ve been used to my whole life,” she said.
An unhealthy relationship with food
Aaliyah shared that she started having a really unhealthy relationship with food, which affected her mental health. “People started commenting about my weight which affected my mental health. A couple of weeks ago, I got a massage lady to come and give me a massage at home. This is the lady I used to call about a year ago when I lived in my old apartment,” she said.
The impact of comments on body image
Aaliyah said that people should never comment about someone’s weight. “Whether you look skinny, fit, or whatever because you don’t know their struggle with their body. You don’t know their relationship with their body. I don’t think it’s a good idea to comment,” she added.
Aaliyah Kashyap’s honest discussion about her weight gain and body image struggles sheds light on the impact of antidepressants and the importance of treating individuals with empathy and understanding. Body shaming and commenting on someone’s weight can have severe consequences on their mental health.
