MAFS’ Selina Chhaur Opens Up About Mental Health Struggles Post-Show
Warning: This article deals with the topic of mental health and may be distressing for some readers.
“MAFS‘” Selina Chhaur has bravely shared her ongoing battle with mental health following her time on the popular reality show. The influencer opened up about the decline in her mental well-being after moving from Adelaide to Sydney last year.
Behind the glitz and glam, Selina revealed the harsh reality she has been living.
“It may seem like I’m living it up over here, but trust me, it has been far from that,” she said on her Instagram stories. “There have been many sleepless nights filled with tears.”
Navigating the influencer world and the current Sydney property market made it tough for Selina. She spoke candidly about her fear of becoming homeless just a few weeks ago.
MAFS’ Selina Chhaur Feared She Would Be Homeless
“I literally was fearing that I was going to be homeless in Sydney,” she said. “I’m so lucky and grateful that I got approved for this apartment.
“I still live this narrative at the moment where brands still don’t want to work with me because I don’t fit this cookie cutter ‘blonde haired blue-eyed’ influencer look,” she continued. “That’s my reality at the moment, it’s not fun and rainbows all the time. It sucks, life does suck sometimes, and that’s okay.”
However, one of the most challenging aspects for Selina has been the absence of contact with her family since wrapping up “MAFS” in January 2022. It wasn’t until just recently that her mother reached out.
“Going through all of that without my family’s support has been incredibly tough,” Selina shared, acknowledging the emotional toll it took on her.
But amidst the struggles, Selina made it clear that she’s currently in a better place emotionally. “I’m finally taking care of myself, eating well, and getting the sleep I need,” she said.
