OnlyFans star Mia Khalifa has told her followers that being strong and independent is a crutch people use to hide their traumatic response to emotional neglect in a brave Twitter post.
The ex-PornHub star has flourished since retiring from the form and now lives as an influencer travelling all across the world.
Speaking directly to her 4.9 million followers, Mia argued that the fixation stems from a fear that we will never be properly taken care of.

Taking to Twitter, Mia said: "Being strong & independent & selfless isn’t the compliment you think it is, hyper independence is a trauma response to emotional neglect- the conditioning that strong and independent is an honorable trait feeds into our fear that we’ll never get to be soft and small and taken care of."
In response, her followers were quick to reassure her that she'd find her peace.
One said: "Move away from the city find great people in the country who will just love you for who you are and all that’ll get taken care of."
Another told their tale of woe, writing: "I understand exactly what you saying it really is like you became that way because of the way a person treated you or being hurt and it makes you become that type of person."
It comes after Mia ruled herself out of dating a legendary US sports star after revealing she gets "the ick" from him.
Her rejection of American football quarterback Tom Brady comes just a day after the news broke of his divorce from Gisele Bundchen.
The pair announced their divorce after 13 years of marriage, but Khalifa, 29, was quick to rule herself out of the running for Brady's future dating scene.
Taking to her Instagram story, Mia showcased a screenshot of her odds on a betting website and declared she got "the ick" from the record-setting American quarterback, and said she was "out of contention".
