On zooming out vs. zooming in
"Side note: I'm such a nerd," Mercado said. "I watch Cosmos with Neil DeGrasse Tyson on the reg. It's so crazy to realize how tiny we are compared to the universe. And you're here trying to figure out how to remove cellulite from your body. It's like, girl, what's wrong with you? That's beautiful, that's natural, that's who you are. Embrace it and worry about something else. Nobody is zooming in but you. You're just harming yourself."
In the past, Mercado said, "I would always zoom in on everything on my own body, because I felt that I was dealt a bad hand." But now, she realizes, "I'm that f*cking Uno card — the plus four or wild card or whatever — where you can pick whatever color you want. I'm a magical unicorn. And everyone can be this magical unicorn. If everyone just understood that, the possibilities are endless."
