Young and Restless’s Christel Khalil (Lily) reveals why she was quitting Instagram for a while
I don’t want to stress it too much, butâ¦ what she said.
Every now and then one of our favorite stars says something that really hits home and resonates. On July 8, this star was Christel Khalil, who made a confession that was both frank and raw, beautiful and inspiring.
“I have to be honest”, the Young and restless leading lady started. âI had to take a break from the ‘gram’ because I felt overwhelmed by the feeling that I always had to say something, post something or ‘use my platform’ for specific reasons, and that has become everything that I am not. “

As a result, Khalil ended up enjoying his time on social media. “I found myself parading aimlessly, feeling bad about myself seeing what other people were doing and everything I was not doing,” she admitted. âI think social media can be great in some ways and toxic in others, depending on your perspective.
âI know I’m not saying anything new here,â she added, âbut I have to remember these are just highlights.â

To reorient himself on a positive path, Khalil then shared a special moment of his own. âThis photo portrays a highlight of my life with my man who is my everything and brings so much joy to my heart,â she said of the gorgeous photo she posted. âBut what that doesn’t show are all the dark moments that I also went through and had to go through.
“So, I’m going to post a highlight,” she concluded, “to remind me that life is beautiful, fleeting and shouldn’t be taken for granted.”
