Felkavaró fotókat mutatott egy színésznő, akit elütött egy busz

2020.05.31. 16:10

A Bordélyház sztárja, a jelenleg az ausztrál Szomszédok-ban, vagyis a Neighbours című szappanoperában látható Madeleine West a napokban több felkavaró fotót is kitett magáról, amelyek 18 éve készültek, miután a színésznőt elütötte egy busz. A koponyája több helyen megrepedt, elég komoly sérülései voltak, de szerencsére semminek nem maradt nyoma az arcán. Erős idegzetűeknek mutatjuk a baleset utáni képeket, alatta pedig pár frissebb fotót arról, hogy West miként néz ki manapság.

Thank you....I know this looks like a failed audition for The Mummy or I’ve contracted a nasty case of leprosy, but it’s just a very vulnerable image attached to a very heartfelt ‘thanks’. I wrote this week about being hit by a bus 18 years ago, and the response sent my heart ricocheting about my chest like a tennis ball between Nadal and Federer. To those who have lent support and simple kindness expecting nothing in return, the words to express my gratitude have not yet been coined. Beyond just…’Thank you’. Your generosity has compelled me to do something I’ve not had the guts to, til now... you see, to this day, I have a #phobia about buses. Any #bus passing by me at speed stops me in my tracks. I freeze... It would seem that, despite much #therapy, much psycho-babble, and directives such as that from one wit who, having read the recent post I wrote about the #accident, felt the need to tell me to ‘get over it’, in some ways that incident haunts me to this very day...and I need to accept it probably always will unless I make a #change... SO... today I’ve booked a flight to #Sydney. Destination: Oxford Street. I’m going to find that same bus-stop, and stand beside it watching the buses roll by. There I will stay til the #fear, the #panic, the fight or flight response fades. It might take all day. But I know when I walk away it will be with a new gratitude for all that has passed, and more importantly, all that is yet to come. Thank you, all of you, for reminding me that that is the point of a life changing experience...it has the #power to change your life, if you are brave enough to let it. Stay safe, live large....

Today I’m celebrating 18 years since being hit by a bus in the head...always wanted to be the kind of girl who stopped traffic. Just preferably not with my face. This pic was snapped on the road to healing, but doesn’t reveal the three skull fractures leaking brain fluid, the cerebral hemorrhage and hematoma, the busted teeth, broken capillaries, the wounds that wouldn’t knit, the endless nights of excruciating pain, the months of therapy to regain gross motor skills, but it demonstrates what I thought was the greatest tragedy: the effect it had on my #appearance. However: that would be the greatest #gift. You see, The way we look, as definitive as we think it is, actually makes up the tiniest portion of who we are. Yet if we take all we are, all we have to offer, our gifts, our personality, our ambitions, our #dreams, and try to cram it into that tiny percentage, then how much will we miss out on? How much will the world miss out on? And what kind of world do we live in if everyone slices and dices the essence of who they are to allow their most definitive character trait to be their appearance? I learned that no-one should ever be forced to give up their dreams. No matter who we are, where we come from or how we look, our dreams are what sustain us. Our ambitions get us out of bed in the morning, and if you have the #courage, the #determination, the drive, and the willingness to work hard to transform the dream into reality, then nothing can stop you … not even a #bus. To all the girls and boys out there, desperately primping, pimping and punishing themselves, labouring to make themselves Insta-ready, editing those selfies, all for a world that tells them their nose doesn’t seem to fit their face, that their butt is too big, those boobs are too small, where is your waist? Your perfect hair? Your perfect teeth? Your perfect mani-pedi? I call BS, and encourage you to as well. The glass ceiling is yours for the breaking, and at the end of the day, the most attractive quality you can possess is belief in yourself.
