Then think long and hard if you want to. It's important to speak up and normalize mental health but fight your fight first. "And sharing publicly is not for everyone - and I say this with no judgement". "I know lots of intelligent, brave people who has no interest in sharing publicly. I know OTHER lots of intelligent, brave people who get bothered by hate and comments on social media. So they focus their valuable energy elsewhere. Take care…” she said with a heart emoji. Ira also said: "Don't share your personal things publicly. Unless you've thought long and hard about it, I know it sounds strange coming from me considering I've done a lot recently, but that's why I wanted to talk about it". She added, "Not that this is any kind of benchmark. But just to let you guys know, I thought about it for about a year before making my Instagram account public, and then I thought about it for two year before I decided to talk about my mental health and my issues on social media publicly. "I had to make sure that I was in the right mind space. Also it depends on what kind of person you are. I don't get bothered by hate on social media or what people comment." She ended the video saying, "Everyone's different, and it's not brave of me to do this because it's not something that scares me. What's brave is that I am dealing with my issues and facing my fears –reaching a point where I am comfortable with my vulnerability."
