Shei Mitchell opened up to experience a miscarriage in 2018 and thanked fans for their continued love and support.
The actor of "Pretty Little Liar" went to Instagram to shed light on the "hardships" she experienced last year, revealing she felt compelled to tell her followers that life is not as perfect as it appears on social media.
When sharing the major moments of the year, the 31-year-old writer sent a heartbeat of the sonogram beside the title: "We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life.
"And sometimes it's easier just to show the good times of social media, which is the reason many people criticize it for lack of authenticity. Having so many people who follow me on Instagram and read my opinions is incredibly calm and very exhilarating.
She added: "The support and love that many of you show me, raises me during my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I lost my child from my hopes and dreams.
Shey then called on people to be more noticeable in their words: "In the New Year's Eve, I think we should remember that we are all together on this journey – in good times and in bad – and recall that we rarely know them or understand the struggles and difficulties that other people are passing through. "
"So, for 2019, let's all try to be a bit more compassionate, compassionate, patient and careful with each other," she concluded. "This sounds like a great resolution for me. I hope you will agree."
