Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child Proudly battles Depression

Thursday, July 19, 2018


Many people might read the headline and think "why is this news, and why is it our business" --by many people I mean Black People. There are certain things we think could never affect us because we are of a particular race, for us black people its depression. In 2018, depression is still very taboo and people will be suffering for years upon years and will not speak about it because of the fear of being seen as crazy. I know you are thinking this is not about race but more about Michelle Williams.

Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain that falls under the mental illness category and can affect anyone regardless of age or socio-economic background. The former Destiny's Child member has been quite vocal about her battle with depression and frequently shares on her Social Media her progress.

“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 for your wellbeing,” Williams wrote in her post.


It was reported that on Tuesday she checked herself into a Mental Health Facility to seek support for depression. She revealed in 2017 on "The Talk", that it wasn't until well into her 30's she realized that she had been depressed since the age of 13. So went on to say that she remember dark times and being suicidal. How can somebody like Michelle Williams of a top-selling female group with a successful Gospel career be depressed you might ask? It could be a number of things with the main one being a chemical imbalance in the brain or childhood trauma -- People with depression often feel hopeless, alone and the problem to every solution and don't feel like they quite fit in. The best thing you can do for a person who is open enough to tell you they might be depressed is trying to get them professional help. There are so many people who suffer from depression in silence for years who seem normal and also seem to be going through the motions of daily life. Do your best to get yourself informed and help your loved ones to get help.

Please, we are all humans, be kind to one another, we never truly know what a person is going through.
