Hollywood actress and wife of thespian, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett has revealed that there was a time she once considered suicide.
The mother of two took to her Instagram page to talk about suicide following the demise of fashion celebrity Kate Spade and Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.
She said she was able to overcome depression with a frequent practice of sound mental health.
Jada wrote:”With the suicides of Kate and Anthony, it brought up feelings of when I was in such despair and had considered the same demise…often.
“In the years I spent towards my healing, many moons ago, I realized the mind and heart can be extremely delicate without the foundation of a formidable spirit.
“What I eat, what I watch on TV, what music I listen to, how I care for my body, my spiritual practice, what people I surround myself with, the amount of stress I allow and so on… either contribute to or deteriorate my mental health.
“Mental health is a daily practice for me. It’s a practice of deep self-love. May Kate and Anthony Rest In Peace. Many may not understand… but I do, and this morning I have the deepest gratitude that I pulled through.”
