Now it's my turn to tell part of my story.
Sophie Grégoire Trudeau
In French, Grégoire Trudeau recalled the time when she called her mom while she was in her bed and shaking because she decided she didn’t want to hurt herself any longer.
That moment was her first step towards healing and changed her life.
She noted that she struggled with bulimia and anorexia, along with anxiety as a teenager where she grappled with her inability to control everything and wanting to please others.
Grégoire Trudeau said that she suffered in silence and she doesn’t want that for others.
She wants there to be a social net built that’s like a big hammock where those who are suffering can be accepted and rest because she believes healing depends on how we treat each other.
Recently, she posted a makeup-free photo on Instagram to celebrate who she is and call out unattainable standards of perfection.
