Y&R Spoilers – Words Of Wisdom

Khalil explained on Instagram,

“I have to be honest, I had to take a break from the gram because I was feeling overwhelmed with feeling like I always had to say something, post something, or ‘use my platform’ for specific reasons and it became everything I am not about. I found myself scrolling aimlessly, feeling badly about myself from seeing what other people were doing and everything I wasn’t doing. I think social media can be great in some ways and toxic in other ways depending on your perspective.”

The actress added,

“I know I’m not saying anything new here, but I have to remind myself that these are just highlights. This picture depicts an amazing highlight in my life with my man who is my everything and brings so much joy to my heart. But what it doesn’t show, are all the dark moments I also have experienced and have had to persevere through. So, here’s to posting a highlight, to remind myself that life is beautiful, impermanent, and shouldn’t be taken for granted.”
