Following the loss, Pink no longer felt comfortable in her own skin. “When that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do,” she said.

"I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out," Pink said. "What I love about therapy is that they'll tell you what your blind spots are. Although that's uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with.”

“I think the reason I can go to such uncomfortable places and be so honest is because I have a really healthy sense of humor,” she continued. “I'm extremely self-deprecating, and when s**t goes bad — which in any life is inevitable — you've just got to find the funny. It's because I can laugh that I can cry so hard."
