She flew high and fell low. The St. Gallen influencer Dijana Cvijetic (28) lost herself for her urge for fame and recognition. Five years ago she took part in the Miss Universe pageant in the Philippine capital of Manila. Although she did not make the top 13 of the 86 competitors, it was a victory for her to even have made it into the ranks of the world’s most beautiful, as she told Blick at the time.
Then she reinvented herself. She changed optically for her self-optimization. Had lip injections, cheeks got squarer, teeth got new, she dyed her hair light blonde and showed herself to be more and more erotic. The eastern Swiss woman matched her appearance to that of TV reality star Kim Kardashian (42). Two years ago she trotted through German trash TV shows such as “Kampf der Realitystars”, “Like Me – I’m Famous” and “Love Island”.
Around 150,000 fans follow her on Instagram
The latter not only brought her a new love, which broke up after two years at the beginning of the summer, but also many followers on Instagram. There are now around 150,000, but also money from their TV appearances and advertising contracts in the monthly five-digit range.
What she looks like in her, who not only suffered from a rare intestinal disease for a long time, but also in love until she was unlucky, she recently wrote in a cry for help on her social media platform with the words: “How long will burnout last? How much longer to cry? How long in 2022 that has me completely torn apart? How much longer am I going to have to put up with all this?” She has received a lot of motivating, loving reactions to her honesty from her internet community, which builds her up a lot.
For eight days she could hardly get out of bed
Because for ten months she has been suffering from complete exhaustion and depression. «I could hardly get out of bed for eight days, I couldn’t stand daylight. It was a nightmare, I’ve been suffering from burnout for far too long,” she says to Blick. You’ve been trying to do yourself good lately. “I went to the forest to breathe deeply, to the lake to read.”
But the problems would always catch up with her. “I can’t say no, that’s my biggest,” says the model. “I tried to function, was always there for everyone, did everything for everyone, but who for me?”. She was exhausted, always wanting to meet expectations, thinking she had to. “I was never my top priority, I want and have to learn that in a healthy relationship.”
Next year should be “super good”.
In January she is therefore admitted to a Swiss rehabilitation clinic for a month. “There are a lot of talks and breathing therapy to do,” she says, adding: “I know it will do me good. I fight my way back into my life step by step and then go full throttle again at my own pace.” Then she wants to take part in other TV shows, work on her influencer career and maybe meet her great love after all.
“It comes as it must. I just hope next year won’t be like this one, just super good. If I can motivate others to seek help when they are not feeling well, my difficult path will, at best, give others the hope of never giving up.”
