Paulina Porizkova Shares a Tearful Selfie & Reveals What She's Ashamed Of

Paulina Porizkova is getting honest on social media.

The 56-year-old star shared a tearful selfie on Thursday (August 12) on her Instagram.

“I know you all enjoy happy posts, seeing people pick themselves up, dust off their pants and get back on the horse, all while smiling to let you know this fall just made them stronger and better people. But. Everyday is not a happy day in the path of recovery,” she began.

“Trust after being betrayed seems as far fetched as being shot into space. Correction. It’s easier to see myself shot into space at this moment. When you’ve been betrayed- promised something, only to have that promise broken without your participation – you were blindsided. You trusted someone you loved, and now all love is suspect. But love is not possible without trust. And a world without love is not worth living. (All kinds of love),” she continued.

“So what does one do when you want to stay open, but the wind of betrayal keeps slamming the door? I guess -maybe – walk outside and brave the weather? You’ll find me in the metaphorical closet pilling on layers for protection.🤣. For you who’d like to point out a crying selfie is the height of narcissism, I whole-heartedly agree!🤪”

One day later, she reflected on the reaction she received from that post.

“Shameless or Shameloss? Firstly, thank you all so much for the unexpected amount of sympathy. A few of my friends accused me of being a narcissist and posting my emotions on IG for so I could get attention and my ass kissed by sycophants. I had to think about it. Am I here to gather sympathy? And what I discovered is really important to me,” she remarked.

“No. I’m here because I’m trying to lose my shame. I post thoughts and emotions that I’m ashamed of. I am ashamed that I’m am grieving, heartbroken and sad. I am ashamed that I am needy. I am ashamed that I’m aging. I’m ashamed that I can be a judgmental bitch. I’m ashamed I wasn’t the parent I meant to be. I’m ashamed that that those I loved left me. I’m ashamed of my fear that I’m not worth loving. I’m ashamed to not measure up to expectations and disappoint. I’m ashamed to cry. I’m ashamed of all my vulnerabilities,” she admitted.

“So I share them. Sharing them is making them less shameful and in return, I gain acceptance of who I am. The authentic me. Not the one I would like to sell you.
#shameloss @jenpastiloff #nomakeup #nofilters #real There. I shared with you to lose my shame. You’re welcome to do the same!”

She also recently revealed that she’s been kicked off of a dating app.
