Dove Cameron Tearfully Opens Up About Identity and Image Crisis

Dove Cameron is getting candid about unlearning “self abuse and hatred.”

On May 18, Cameron went to Instagram to communicate her struggles with “the concept of self, my inner relationship to who I know myself to be and my outer perceivable self who I feel I have never known but other people seem to.”

She shared the message along with a photo of herself in tears. Adding, “I’ve been crying a lot lately, sometimes terrorized by my identity and image, sometimes in absolute flow with something new and peripheral and joyous to me.”

The Descendants star recently came out as queer, saying, “sexuality and performative gender norms, societal rewards and identity are really throwing me for a loop.”

She currently feels that social media is “not optimal for mental health, clarity of energy or relationship to our inner world. This is a modern problem not designed with human health in mind.”

She continued, “We all deserve a life unburdened by the societally created identity, we all deserve to unlearn self abuse and hatred. I am on that journey now, and I’m sharing so that we may all feel more comfortable in a conversation that may be confusing, and we may navigate something that feels difficult to put to words, together.”
