MUMBAI: The third runner-up of controversial reality show 'Bigg Boss 13', Rashami Desai, recently opened up about her fight with depression. She revealed that counseling and her work really helped her to overcome the toughest part of her life.
Speaking to the Hindustan Times, Rashami described how she felt during the days of depression. She said, "You start feeling low, your self-esteem is hit, your self-confidence is almost zero. You become moody and sad and your choices change. Many people face this but they do not talk about it. Maine apne aap ko baandh liya tha (I restricted myself). The beautiful part is that my work always supported me. Because I worked, it helped me a lot. Three to four years later, I also took counseling and realized that if I could create something, I could also undo something."
Rashami also opened up about her battle that she faced just because of being a girl inside the BB house. Everyone made her feel that she could not do anything and cannot achieve great things in life owing to her gender. However, it is only because of her family and the hard work that she is so successful in her life and has so much love from her fans.
Advising all the others out there who face depression, Rashami said, "ou should be with people who want to see you grow and who can help you grow. Often, we do not realize but our choices may be wrong. We are sad when things do not match our expectations. I think you should always move ahead and never give up."
Rashami has a wide fan following and that just doubled after she arrived in the reality show 'Bigg Boss 13' and presented her real-self. She has now bagged the role of Shalaka in the Ekta Kapoor's TV soap 'Naagin 4' and the audience seems to not get enough of the actress.
