Bella Thorne has opened up about her past experiences of sexual abuse.
The actress penned a poignant poem to her Instagram page, alongside an artistic nude shot, about how her childhood has impacted her insecurities in romantic relationships.
The star revealed that she has felt that “sex” is all she has been able to offer the world.
“What is wrong with me? Why do I always need Validation from everyone but mostly men… Everyone keeps telling me to be single, be alone, and make your self happy.,” she wrote.
“I can’t accept myself. For some reason in my head I’m just not f*cking good enough. Not good enough for him or Her or anyone else. And if it’s not him I just look for the “next” him, or her Why can’t I just look for the next me?”
“Find me and accept me. Was it because I was molested my whole life. Exposed to sex at such a young age it’s all I know how to offer to the world…or is it because I was raised to think I wasn’t good enough,” she continued.
The actress expressed that she wished to work on herself and her issues:
“I can’t blame my childhood, in fact I can’t blame anyone for anything. All I can do is blame me. I blame me for not loving myself,” she wrote.
“I blame me for not thinking I’m attractive, I blame me for putting this on everyone around me. Expecting people to love me enough for me to love myself. But at the end of the day that will never happen.”
Bella’s poem comes from her book Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray.
