Duffy returns to Instagram after four years following kidnapping and rape ordeal

Duffy has returned to Instagram after four years following her horrific kidnapping and rape ordeal.
The Welsh singer-songwriter left the spotlight after suffering a traumatising incident which she first revealed in February 2020.
The 39-year-old previously opened up about being raped, drugged and held captive “over a period of days” following her huge success and becoming a Grammy Award-winning artist in 2008.

Duffy whose real name is Aimee Anne Duffy shared a clip featuring different animated art styles set to poignant music.
A man’s voice narrated the video and quoted Bianca Sparacino’s healing novel The Strength In Our Scars.
The man read: “You’re going to realize it one day – that happiness was never about your job or your degree or being in a relationship.”

“Happiness was never about following in the footsteps of all of those who came before you; it was never about being like the others.”
“One day, you’re going to see it – that happiness was always about the discovery, the hope, the listening to your heart and following it wherever it chose to go.”
“Happiness was always about being kinder to yourself; it was always about embracing the person you were becoming.”

“One day, you will understand that happiness was always about learning how to live with yourself, that your happiness was never in the hands of others.”
“One day you will realise that true happiness comes from within and no external factors can define it. It was always about you. It was always about you.”
Under the post, Duffy addressed her followers for the first time in four years and wrote: “A little something to motivate the heart on a Monday.”

“Hope you are all doing well. Lots of love, Duffy.”
Her fans flooded the comments with messages of support and love for the star, telling her how much they missed her.
One user wrote: “We miss you, Duffy. And we love you. Hope you are doing okay. Remember people love you here; We miss you Duffy and your beautiful voice ❤”
“We miss you Duffy. We love you and hope and wish you are happy, fulfilled and where your heart wants you to be; duffy i think of you EVERY day ❤ you’re so loved!”
