“No matter how many followers or how many friends I have, I never felt like I was alone.”
Since skyrocketing to this year’s fame, Tiktok superstar Charlie D’Melio has been the subject of intense online bullying. So much so that she says she has to get therapy.
Charlie recently sat with Tickcock’s star Avni Greg on Avni’s Messenger show Here for For a candid conversation about cyber bullying, and things went much deeper.
At just 16 years old, the dancer and influencer confronted people with real death threats, making fun of their physical appearance. And it all started before he became famous.
Charlie says that she used to face anxiety until all her feelings were broken.
When she first tried therapy, she hated the experience and stopped going. But thankfully he gave it another shot a month ago and it made a lot of difference.
“I think it’s accepting that you’re not well. It took me a while. I was like, ‘You were never really upset. You’re not depressed.’ You can’t celebrate your feelings just because you’re happy sometimes. “
Charlie said that even if you think you are doing great, there is no harm in talking to anyone.
Charlie and Avni also spoke with therapist Katie Morton, who described how she helps patients who have experienced bullying.
