“…you and my family really give me a purpose to live & helped me realize life is much more than materialistic things & you gotta just keep through the b******t,” wrote Cori in the caption.

She also went on Instagram live and notes that colorism and sickness contributed to her depression and negative self-image.

“I think it starts from my childhood. I grew up with two light-skinned brothers…I was the only chocolate one,” shared Cori. “I was overweight, I got lupus at six…And that just automatically just messed with my health. I’ve always been sad, I’ve always been depressed, ’cause I feel like I’ve just been through a lot. Like, as far as my sickness and not knowing if it was cancer or if it was lupus and then finding out it was lupus [at six years old].”

Cori also adds that just because her father is Snopp Dogg doesn’t mean the struggles just go away.

“Just because my dad is who he is, that doesn’t mean I don’t get sad,” she continued. “That doesn’t mean  I don’t want things or I don’t feel a way.”

Being diagnosed with lupus at a young age took a toll on Cori from the very beginning.

“When I first got lupus my face used to peel and my hair was falling out, and even just me being dark like people looked at me like I was an alien like I was a monster.”

Her struggles with the illness took a toll on her both mentally and physically.

“At 13 I was ready to die,” recalled Cori. “Like, just so sad crying to my mom like ‘Mom, I’m so ugly. Why did you have me? Why do I look like this? Why don’t I look like my brothers? Why?…. I hated everything about me.”

Cori reiterates that just because it seems like a person has it all doesn’t mean that they don’t face obstacles in their lives like everyone else.

“Just because you have money, and just because you’re able to do certain things that people can’t doesn’t mean that you don’t have a heart, you don’t have a mind, you don’t have a soul,” she continued. “I go through it just like everybody else.”

Talk about being brave enough to share her story to encourage others! Our prayers continue for Cori Broadus.
