Mia Khalifa was in tears when she took to TikTok with an emotional post about ‘healing her inner child.’
The 29-year-old posted the clip as part of a trend where users share something they have learned to love in their life that their past self would have appreciated.
In the clip, which has more than 88,000 likes, the Lebanese-American Onlyfans star was seen wiping tears from her face as she revealed a photo of herself as a child with braces.
She was responding to the other user’s text which reads: “We get it. You finally love your culture. Who cares?”
Then when the clip says “she does” the pair show photos of themselves as children suggesting they didn’t always feel that way.
Mia seemed to be the most emotional of the two as she captioned the post with: “Inner child healing hurts. This crushed me.”
Her fans flocked to the comments to offer their support as other women with Middle Eastern heritage claim to have felt the same at one time or another.
One user said: “Felt this. All my Middle Eastern queens, you’re so worth it.”
Another added: “I need to embrace my non-white side more too.”
A third said: “Healing your inner child hurts sm! But the peace you feel after is so worth it!”
A fourth wrote: “I wish I could tell my younger self there is no reason to be ashamed of being brown. I understand this too well.”
The news comes after the former adult actress took a moment at an awards ceremony this weekend to deliver a feminist message to a presenter.
