“I had no plans of what I was going through being public BUT now that it is I have a made an even BIGGER commitment to the mental health awareness area,” Williams wrote on Instagram. “So many people are suffering, hurting, hopeless, lost and don’t see a way out but there is.”
ABC/Ida Mae AstuteThe former Destiny’s Child member began her post by thanking everyone for their love and support.
“Depression sucks, but my faith in God and my commitment to doing the work to stay well is my way out,” she continued.
Williams offered advice for those who feel depressed.
“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,” she commented. “If you can just get up out the bed and brush your teeth and shower…DO IT. For people dealing with depression, that is a HUGE step!“
Williams ended her message by saying that Beyonce’s mother, Tina Lawson, did something special for her.
“Oh….Miss Tina cooked a HUGE meal for me the other night too, I just wanted to make y’all jealous!”
