The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that Hunter King (Summer Newman) recently posted an honest Instagram story about her battle with depression. The Y&R star opened up about her daily struggles and offered some tips to anyone facing the same fight.
Since there can sometimes still be an unfortunate stigma surrounding depression and other similar issues, it’s good that King’s spreading the word and showing how she copes. Depression can strike no matter who you are or what your life looks like.
King’s using her platform to help all types of people in all types of situations, so that’s something she could be commended for. The Young and the Restless star was hopeful that she could help even just one person, so let’s look at what King had to say in this Instagram story and talk about her advice.
King started off the video at work in her dressing room. She had a few scenes off, so she thought she’d take the opportunity to share with her fans. King admitted she doesn’t really talk about this a lot, but it seems she felt it was the right time to speak up.
“I deal with depression pretty much on a daily basis at this point, I’d say” King revealed. “Some days are hard. Some days are easier.” King noted that there were certain strategies she uses to cheer herself up when things get tough, so she offered up some of those tactics.
One was reminding herself that a moment is only a moment and that whatever is happening will pass. Another tip from King was about positive thoughts and how she can sometimes trick herself into being in a good mood.
King also suggested it was important to have a perspective of gratitude. She tries to view it as she gets to do something rather than has to.
King’s fourth tip was another interesting and useful one. She tries to ask herself what she’d do if she could go back in time to an exact moment and figure out how she’d want to live it.
Finally, King talked about how she wants to look back on her life if she’s lucky enough to grow old. She insisted she wanted to know she did all she could to be the happiest she could be.
King wrapped up her post with the hope that her suggestions might help others who were dealing with depression. She invited her fans to chime in with their own ideas, so it’s great that she’s creating a dialogue and getting the word out.
