Following her sister Gigi Hadid’s Instagram revelation that Hadid has been undergoing intensive treatment for the illness and was taking a break from her career to prioritize her well-being, Hadid has now decided to speak about her situation in her own words.

Motherly support

Hadid expressed gratitude to her mother for keeping her medical records, staying by her side, providing unwavering support, and, most importantly, believing in her throughout this ordeal.

Despite being surrounded by blessings, privilege, opportunity, and love, she found herself in a state of confusion and illness. Hadid assured her followers that she is alright and they need not worry. She also emphasized that she wouldn’t change anything about her journey, as it led her to the person she is today.

Staying strong vs Lyme

Hadid spoke of the painful yet beautiful ways in which the universe works, encouraging those who are struggling to believe that things will improve with time. She advised stepping back, staying strong, having faith in one’s path, embracing authenticity, and trusting that the challenges will eventually fade away.
