She further added:

“I’ve been covering mirrors lately. I’ve been feeling wrong in clothing that used to make me feel beautiful lately. i’ve been crying a lot lately, sometimes terrorized by my identity and image, sometimes in absolute flow with something new and peripheral and joyous to me.”

Dove explained:

“What I am choosing to say is I am in process, I’m investigating. I’m struggling more than half of the time and I’m trying to maintain a quiet, non-judgmental curiosity, rather than punish myself for not knowing what I’m feeling or where I’m going,” 

Lastly, Dove explained that she shared all of her internal struggles with her followers without any fixed answer hoping that people with the same struggle don’t feel lonely.

“I share this without conclusion because I don’t have answers from myself yet, and because I have a feeling it’s a very intrinsically (modern) human conversation, and I never want you to feel alone in a sea of what seems like humans who are comfortable in their identity.”

In her caption, she continued:

“I’m feeling it out, and if you are too, we can do it together. The longer I’m alive, the more I realize these inner dialogues are actually pretty universal.”
