In this exclusive conversation with Etimes, when asked about how she deals with her insecurities, Sushmita answered, “Ofcourse I have my insecurities and they keep changing as the day of the week. They pop out of nowhere. Sometimes out of conditioning or otherwise. I count my blessings and as I have too much to be grateful for. Sometimes when I look at myself in the mirror and see I have a puffed up face, or my eyes are small or a I broke out or I’m not looking my best or feeling my best, I have just had a heart attack! There are so many tragedy queen moments to look back in my life and then I go stand in front of the mirror and look at myself and say how dare I say these things to myself. I don’t need someone else to tell me, I tell myself that I have so many gifts of life. I thank God and the minute I say that, something happens. The filter that we put on instagram just comes on naturally because there’s something so beautiful about the power that’s born inside.”
Sushmita also highlighted how she prefers to keep her social media timeline filtered and clean. She blocks people if they opt to say anything nasty about her on her feed and deletes out those comments to protect her mental health.
