Tammin Sursok has taken to Instagram on December 5 to share a collection of intimate images from her childhood.
The Pretty Little Liars actress shared the collage with fans and left with it a heartbreakingly honest message about how she used to battle with her demons as a child.
The actress introduced the post, "Hey guys. :) So I was going through some pictures from my family home and I came across these. It actually took me back to a place of painful memories."
Sursok went on to reflect on the insecurities she faced in the past, "I remember the lack of self love and the lack of compassion I had for myself."
The actress confessed, "I think it's important to speak about this around the holidays - especially when all we are seeing is everyones "highlight" reel, the filters, the perfect families, the perfect bodies - and I know there are many people out there who are struggling, who don't feel like they are enough, who have no hope. I PROMISE you, you can change your life. You can get out of a painful situation. It takes one positive step in the right direction. Just one step."
Sursok explained, "This is not about weight, it's about positive change from whatever negative situation you find yourself in. This is coming from me, this was my story, a little girl close to 200 pounds, who woke up one day and decided enough was enough. I love you all and I truly believe in every one of you.#thisisbeautiful."
Fans were quick to reply to the 33-year-old, some also sharing their difficult experiences.
