On May 5, 2020, Komal Pandey shared a post where she talked about how she dealt with anxiety. Talking about her relationship she said, "My past relationships have brought monumental changes in my life. I was dating a guy for 4 years in college, but during my finals, we hit a rough patch. He left me for another girl & I was shattered. In the blink of an eye, I lost everything.
I had a gap year & since fashion interested me, with nothing left to lose, I started blogging. I began making videos & kept growing; people loved my content–I reached 500k followers within 3 years! But behind the success, I was crumbling."
The blogger then was in another relationship and said, "At the time, I was in another relationship–he left me for someone else as well. I began comparing myself to other women; I felt I wasn't as smart, pretty or talented. I’d get panic attacks because I was scared of being alone or not being ‘enough’ for yet another man."
She then talked about her fight with anxiety and said, "After my 2nd failed relationship, I began therapy. I was diagnosed with clinical anxiety & put on medication. After a year & much internal work, I was a changed person. I was a pushover but finally, I felt confident to just be me."
Pandey then talked about how people on the internet were not supportive saying, "So I let my real self come out online, but people couldn’t accept the new & bold Komal & began to hate. Almost all comments were like, 'You used to be so sweet, you’re so arrogant now–we don’t know you’. All the hate boiled down to slut-shaming me for my clothes & makeup."
