Constance explained, “For the next few decades, I put my job aside to focus my mental health,” Constance who had a child in 2020. AsAms are not able to talk enough about mental health. We are quick to praise representation wins but avoid the uncomfortable topics that affect our community.

Constance’s tweets included her own. Constance stated that they became so touchy, that many of her AsAm colleagues decided it was time to either ignore me or ice out me. It hurt, I will admit. But it made me realise how crucial it was to help people going through difficult times. 

So she felt inspired to create. She says that she is here to help others talk through the difficult stuff, to make sense of it and to find ways to heal. If we want to be seen, really seen…We need to let all of ourselves be seen, including the parts we’re scare of or ashamed of—parts that, however imperfect, require care and attention. We must stop beating ourselves up and not beat each other. 

She’s human, just like everyone else. Although my book might not reflect the best of intentions, she said that it was as real as possible. “Because the truth is, I’m not poised or graceful or perfect. I’m emotional. I make mistakes…lots of ‘em!” 

Now, after three years, she is ready to return to the social media world.  

She concluded, “After taking a break from Hollywood and doing a lot therapy, I’m OK enough to return on this (at least temporarily)” Even though I am scared, I have decided to share my story with others because it may help them.
