Nadine admits struggle with depression
Nadine Lustre admitted on Friday that she is struggling with depression.
"It may come as a surprise to you, but I have struggled with depression way back, and still am to this day," the actress opened up in an Instagram post, which showed a bouquet of flowers. "I have days where I'm just sitting in the tub, asking myself a lot of questions, confused."
"I felt like I was just looking in someone else's life through a window. Feeling bad because I am not enough, and everything that I do and will do will never be enough. It's not easy. I have days when I have to put a mask on, smiling, numbing myself from negative emotions, too often. I have already mastered the art of hiding it, I bet you never even noticed it."
Lustre then thanked her family and friends for helping her cope with depression.
"I'm thankful that I'm blessed to have a strong heart and clear mind, family who will always be my strength, friends who will always pull me up, love who will always guide me," said Lustre, who is in a relationship with actor James Reid.
