I Never Sent The Message
I never sent the message because I was afraid of what would happen if I did.
What was the message you were trying to send Adriana
When Adriana Lima walks, the world stops and watches. The Brazilian-born supermodel has a career that most people could only dream of, with contracts from some of the biggest names in the fashion industry, including Victoria’s Secret, Maybelline, and Prada. She’s also a mother, a wife, and an entrepreneur. So what was the message Adriana Lima was trying to send when she strutted her stuff on the runway at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show?
For starters, Lima is no stranger to the VS Fashion Show. This was her 18th time walking in the annual event, which is basically the Super Bowl for models. She’s also been an Angel since 2000, making her one of the longest-serving members of the VS family. So it’s safe to say that when Lima walks down that runway, she means business.
This year, however, there was something different about Lima’s walk. For one thing, she wore a pair of angel wings that were significantly smaller than her usual ones. The wings were also adorned with the words “mental health” in big, bold letters.
It’s no secret that Lima has been vocal about her struggles with anxiety and depression in the past. In an interview with Vogue earlier this year, she opened up about how she used to wake up in the middle of the night shaking from anxiety. “I was like, ‘What is happening to me?’ I had to find my power again,” she said.
It’s clear that Lima is using her platform to raise awareness about mental health issues and to encourage others to speak up about their own struggles. By wearing those wings on the runway, she sent a powerful message: that it’s OK to talk about your mental health, and that you’re not alone.
Why didn’t you send the message
I’m sorry I didn’t send the message. I was busy and I forgot.
What were you hoping to accomplish by sending Adriana a message
I was hoping to accomplish a few things by sending Adriana a message. First, I wanted to let her know that I was thinking about her and missed her. Second, I wanted to see how she was doing and if she needed anything. Lastly, I wanted to apologize for anything that I may have done wrong and to let her know that I’m still here for her if she needs me.
Did you ever end up sending Adriana the message
I’m sorry, I never ended up sending Adriana the message.
How did you feel after you realized you hadn’t sent Adriana the message
I felt awful after I realized I hadn’t sent Adriana the message. I had meant to send her a congratulatory message after she got the promotion, but I completely forgot. When I saw her name in my inbox, I felt terrible that I had forgotten and felt even worse when I saw that she had been promoted.
What did you do instead of sending Adriana the message
I’m sorry I never sent you that message, Adriana. I was going to, I swear. But then I didn’t. I don’t know why. Maybe I was scared. Or maybe I just didn’t know what to say. But I should have sent it anyway.
I think about you every day, Adriana. I wonder how you are doing. I wonder if you ever think about me. I hope you do. I hope you think about me as much as I think about you.
I miss you, Adriana. I miss your smile and your laugh and your company. I miss hearing you talk and seeing your face light up when you’re happy. I even miss your anger and your frustration, because at least that meant I was still in your life somehow.
But you’re not in my life anymore, are you? You left and you took a piece of my heart with you. And I can’t get it back no matter how much I want to.
I’m sorry, Adriana. I’m sorry for everything. I’m sorry for not being brave enough to send you that message. Maybe it would have made a difference, or maybe it wouldn’t have changed anything at all. But at least I would have tried.
Why did you choose not to send Adriana the message
I didn’t send Adriana the message because I wanted to respect her privacy. I know she’s going through a lot right now and the last thing she needs is me adding to her stress. I’m sure she’ll appreciate my discretion when she’s ready to talk about what’s going on.
What would you have said in the message to Adriana
Assuming you are Adriana’s friend:
Hey, I’m just thinking about you and wanted to check in. I hope you’re doing well and staying safe. I miss you a lot and can’t wait to hang out with you again. Stay strong!
What do you think Adriana’s reaction would have been to your message
Adriana would have been thrilled to receive my message! She is always looking for ways to connect with her fans and make them feel appreciated.
Do you regret not sending Adriana the message
If you are wondering whether or not you should send Adriana that message, the answer is probably yes. It is better to err on the side of sending too many messages than too few, and you will likely regret not sending the message if Adriana does not receive it.
