Nicola Peltz Beckham wants the world to know that it’s okay not to feel good.
The Transformers star, 27, wasn’t afraid to get vulnerable in a poignant Instagram post about how she deals with tough days and people trying to bring her down. Along with her post, Nicola included a series of photos showing her tears in bed with a stuffed animal.
“Sometimes I have a hard time showing the sad parts of me,” she captioned her Aug. 5 post. “Growing up with seven siblings and two very strong parents, made me really tough, they hammered me not to let people put me down or hurt my heart. It made me put up such a wall for myself. protect, especially in this industry.”
It’s a barrier she hopes to break down in the future.
“We all have days when people make you feel bad and it’s okay to be hurt by it,” she continued. “I just thought I’d write something because I never show that side of me here. I wanted to show that side of me. I love you all so much and really appreciate all of your support.”
