Sending an abundance of prayers: Michelle Williams checks into mental facility due to depression
We just wanted to take this time to send our thoughts and prayers to #MichelleWilliams her friends and family during this tough time. Mental health is so important and it’s not spoken upon enough.
“For years I have dedicated myself to increasing awareness of mental health and empowering people to recognize when it’s time to seek help, support and guidance from those that love and care”
According to #PeopleMagazine Williams has struggled with depression since the age of 13.
Michelle has even stated during the pinnacle of her career; as 1/3 of one the best selling girl groups of all time #DestinysChild ; she had suicidal thoughts on a regular basis. When she confided in #Beyoncé’s father and manager of the group he informed her that : ,‘You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about . “ Which ultimately made Williams feel that maybe she wasn’t depressed, just tried .
“Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for the betterment of those in need,” she added. “If you change your mind, you can change your life “
How many people, friends, family members, associates etc are literally crying for our help each day? Unknowingly we ignore the signs, brush their feelings off and come up with our own insensitive diagnosis. As a human race, we have to do better!
Get well soon Michelle 🙏🏿
