Lily Collins has recently opened up about dealing with troubled boyfriends, eating disorders and father issue in her new collection of essays, Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Lily said, “It’s definitely like having my diary published.”

Lily stated, “I’m willing to put myself in that awkward position, to be the first to stand up and say, ‘Well, this is something I went through.’”

The Emily in Paris star revealed she penned the book to inspire her young fans, saying, “This is my way to open up conversation with young women and say, ‘Hey, we’re all the same.’”

“We all have the same struggles,” remarked the 34-year-old.

Lily discussed about eating disorder, explaining, “Eating was no longer a fun social event, but instead a chore and a punishment.”

“I was exhausted and antsy and bitchy all the time. I sure as hell wasn’t much fun. But my plan was working! I was in control! I was skinny!” she mentioned.

The To The Bone actress also disclosed about dating few men who had issues with sobriety.

“The hardest of these relationships was with an ex-boyfriend who used substances as a way to self-medicate, alternating between drugs and alcohol,” she explained.

Lily wrote in her book, “We all make choices and, although I don’t excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can’t rewrite the past.”

“I’m learning how to accept your actions and vocalise how they made me feel. I now understand that my frustrations surrounding our communication are not about changing you, but accepting you as you are,” added the actress.

Lily noted, “I found myself in a romantic relationship filled with deceit, infatuation and codependency.”

“I know now that I fell for his image,” she added,

Lily concluded, “Self-love is the one and only love that you need first and foremost.”
