The decision wasn’t made lightly; it was because of constant online bullying. “There’s been a ridiculous amount of body shaming,” Bader said. Trolls belittled her because of her changing weight. At first, the influencer believed that talking about her fitness, diet, and lifestyle would help others facing the same challenges. Unfortunately, the bad side of the internet made that impossible.

“I try to not look at the really mean things online the best that I can because it really saves my mental health,” she confessed. Yet, anyone who has faced online bullying will tell you that it’s easier to talk about ignoring nasty comments than actually doing it. It takes immense emotional strength to navigate through a sea of negativity daily, only to encounter more of the same the next day.

The decision to keep her fitness journey private is not one Bader took lightly. “I felt like it could be helpful for people going through similar struggles, but I decided tonight that I’m no longer gonna do that,” she said. It’s a harsh indictment of a culture that often forgets there’s a human being behind every social media profile. Bader’s sentiments are a wake-up call for many to consider the impact their words can have, especially when they’re negative.

The influencer also had a message for those showing hate. “You can pretend you want good for me, but it’s actually people that want the worst for me, and it’s just fun for them to keep making fun of me and do it publicly.” This showed how mean some parts of the internet can be.

Bader’s courageous stand against body shaming is a necessary step toward reclaiming not just her mental health, but also her online space. And setting boundaries that should have been respected from the outset. As she fought back tears, she promised to focus on making the “best” decisions for her mental and physical health, serving as a reminder that we should all extend a little more empathy and a lot less judgment.
