Michelle Williams – Depression Sucks!
Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams has struggled with depression for years. Earlier this month, Williams released a statement on social media addressing her depression and letting the world know she was checking into a mental health institution to get help.
Michelle is taking the steps to better herself while at the same time encouraging fans and family to get help. In a recent IG post Williams thanks her family, friends, fans and fiancé Chad Johnson for the love and support during this time of healing. She wrote,
Thank you all soooooooooooo much for every message of love and support sent! My family, friends, and fiancé have been AWESOME! Sitting here reflecting on the past two weeks. I had no plans of what of what I was going through being public BUT now that it is I have made an even BIGGER commitment to the mental health awareness area. So many people are suffering, hurting, hopeless, lost and don’t see a way out but there is. Depression sucks, but my faith in God and my commitment to do the work to stay well is my way out! You have to do the work even when you’re tired and feel the heaviness. Take one step at a time! Don’t overwhelm yourself. If you can just get up out of bed and brush your teeth and shower. DO IT. For people dealing with depression, That is a HUGE step! Now don’t be depressed AND stinky….. pick a struggle! ?. (Y’all know I had to add some humor) Anyhoo….. I love you all very much! Talk soon! ?? (Yes I need a fill and my roots need to be flat ironed….. bye…. I haven’t lost my humor) ?? Oh…….. Miss Tina cooked a HUGE meal for me the other night too, i just wanted to make y’all jealous!
Michelle has since been taking steps to public acknowledge mental health and encouraging fans to get help.
