“It may come as a surprise to you but I have struggled with depression way back and still am to this day,” she first said. “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 ‘cuz I am not enough and everything that I do and will do will never be enough. It’s not easy.”

Nadine also emphasized how important family and friends are when you’re going through 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.” She also shared the beauty of accepting and recognizing weakness so that you can come out of your situation stronger and a better version of yourself. “It’s okay to be said. It’s okay to feel pain. It’s okay to be vulnerable.”
She also revealed the time in when she also felt so low, “I almost did it before and I’m so thankful that I didn’t do it, because If I did, I wouldn’t be living the life that I have now. Stay with us because life is beautiful. #KeepGoing ;”
A few hours later, she also wrote a message for her late brother, Isaiah, and posted with his photos from the beach. “I’m so proud of you,” she said as she shared her brother’s talent with writing. She thanked him for making her braver. “I know whatever challenge I will have to face, I will pull through because of you.” She thanked him for being her strength.
